NEW DELHI: Global tech giant Cisco has announced new capabilities for its HyperFlex Systems portfolio and revealed validated test results that demonstrate application performance for its hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI).

Cisco’s approach integrates the Cisco HX Data Platform, a distributed file system built specifically for HCI clusters, with low-latency UCS fabric and deep network policy engineering to deliver IO consistency and breakthrough performance.

HyperFlex is a completely engineered solution with integrated network, compute and storage that provides operational simplicity, a better user experience, and more efficient scaling options.

The simplicity of hyperconverged infrastructure has made it one of the fastest growing technology areas. Yet first-generation HCI solutions use software running on conventional servers and lack cluster networking integration, which limits application performance and makes solutions extremely complex to deploy, troubleshoot and maintain. These disjointed overlay approaches are further compounded by the use of latency-inducing software wrappers around legacy, open-source files systems.

As a result, while these legacy HCI offerings have been suited for light isolated workloads, they have limited customers’ ability to efficiently expand hyperconvergence to latency-sensitive and business critical applications.

“In less than a year, more than 1,100 customers have embraced HyperFlex to simplify and transform their data center operations,” said Liz Centoni, senior vice president and general manager of Cisco’s Computing Systems Product Group. “We purpose-built HX Data Platform, our distributed file system for HCI, to deliver the high performance and consistently low latency needed to allow customers to expand from initial use-cases like VDI to a much broader range of business-critical apps.”
