HyperFlex, Cisco’s Next Generation of Hyper-converged Infrastructure
January 13, 2017
Earlier this month CISCO announced the latest edition in their product family, HyperFlex. Already being coined as the ‘next generation of hyper-converged infrastructure’, HyperFlex combines innovative software defined storage and data services software with Cisco UCS.
It also delivers the capabilities that customers have been waiting for in a hyperconverged solution. By extending their strategy of software defined, policy driven infrastructure to hyper-convergence, Cisco are able to accelerate mainstream adoption of valuable technology and provide customers a future-ready platform for evolving applications.
Cisco HyperFlex Systems
Through their strategic relationship with Springpath, Cisco have integrated innovative storage and data services software with Cisco UCS to create an architecture with substantial differentiation. This provides:
- Independent scaling of compute and storage capacity allows right resources to be added incrementally in the right ratios.
- Dynamic data distribution provides high availability, superior performance and better efficiency.
- Continuous data optimization, delivered via always-on inline deduplication and inline compression that is layered on a log structured file system, minimizes storage needs by up to 80% without compromising on performance.
- Integrated Management and Data Services allow HyperFlex systems to deliver native data services like granular Snapshots and Clones and to be seamlessly added to the robust UCS management ecosystem to simplify management.
