Cisco Hyperconverged Infrastructure delivers complete hyperconvergence. It combines the Software-Defined networking and computing power of Cisco UCS with the Cisco HyperFlex HX Data Platform. And it is designed for simplicity. Cisco HyperFlex brings increased operational efficiency and adaptability to more workloads in your data center. Cisco Hyperconverged Infrastructure HyperFlex Systems, powered by Intel Xeon processors, combine computing, storage, and networking into a simplified, easy-to-use platform. These systems bring the pay-as-you-grow economics of the cloud to on-premises virtual infrastructure so you can gain new levels of agility, efficiency, and adaptability. With an integrated network fabric, powerful data optimization, and unified management, Cisco Hyperconverged Infrastructure HyperFlex Systems bring the full potential of Cisco Hyperconverged Infrastructure to your virtual desktop infrastructure deployments.
End users can expect one second or less response times with the cluster at full 1000 user load. Cisco includes performance data on their website for the recently released Intel Broadwell processors and faster memory and for Microsoft Windows 10 and Office workload. It is clear that Cisco Hyperconverged Infrastructure HyperFlex delivers industry leading end-user experience for VMware Horizon virtual desktop users on the latest desktop operating system and office suite on the customer’s provisioning platform of choice. Cisco HyperFlex Systems deliver complete hyper convergence, combining Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and computing with a Next Generation Cisco HX Data Platform. Engineered on Cisco UCS, HyperFlex brings new levels of operational efficiency and adaptability to your data center, so you can unlock the full potential of hyper converged infrastructure. Get the most value from your data — unify compute, storage, and networking.
Cisco Hyperconverged Infrastructure
Cisco Hyperconverged Infrastructure HyperFlex unifies our fabric network and compute technology with a next-generation data platform. Increase capacity use without compromising performance with Cisco HyperFlex inline data deduplication and compression. Support today’s enterprise applications and new, cloud-native workloads with Cisco HyperFlex HX Data Platform Software. Flexible scaling — scale nodes, compute, or capacity independently in HyperFlex clusters to adapt to business needs. Bring the full potential of hyperconvergence to your virtual desktop environments. Continuous data optimization — always-on inline data deduplication and inline compression provide highly efficient resource utilization, reducing the IT footprint. Dynamic data distribution — incoming data is more securely distributed and optimized across servers and storage tiers in the cluster to eliminate performance bottlenecks and achieve high IO performance.
Rapidly Deploy VMware View
Cisco Hyperconverged Infrastructure HyperFlex Systems addresses this need while also including the desirable features of flexibility and consistent management. Cutting the deployment time of the required compute, storage and network infrastructure for desktop virtualization to two hours or less is an order of magnitude faster than typical two-week deployment times for some converged systems. Optimize your data — continuous data optimization — always-on inline data deduplication and inline compression provide highly efficient resource utilization, reducing the IT footprint. When using VMware Horizon as the broker for virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) for pooled, non-persistent Microsoft Windows virtual desktops and new with VMware Horizon 7, for hosted Apps and desktops via integration with Microsoft RDS (Remote Desktop services) on Microsoft Windows Server, allows the near immediate use of new capacity as it is brought online and provides seamless desktop image maintenance.
Cisco Hyperflex Systems
The Cisco Hyperconverged Infrastructure HyperFlex solution focuses on simplicity of deployment and operation. It delivers a hyperconverged platform that has the advantage of allowing you to start small and grow in small increments without the need for expensive storage devices connected to computing resources by either SAN or Network-Attached Storage (NAS) methods. Expand the boundaries of hyperconverged infrastructure with Cisco Hyperconverged Infrastructure HyperFlex HX Data Platform storage technology. A basic cluster requires three hyperconverged nodes managed by Cisco UCS Manager. Beyond this, a Cisco HyperFlex cluster can increase computing and storage resources for flexible scaling according to workload needs. Flexibility is introduced by creating a cluster with a mix of Cisco UCS B200 M4 Blade Servers as computing — only nodes connected to a set of Cisco Hyperconverged Infrastructure HyperFlex HX240c M4 Nodes operating as hyperconverged nodes. In this scenario, the hyperconverged node provides storage for the Cisco UCS B200 M4 computing — only nodes.
Cisco Hyperconverged Infrastructure HyperFlex is built on the Cisco UCS platform. It is part of a data center architecture that supports traditional, converged, and hyperconverged systems with common policies and infrastructure management. Bridge to Next Generation IT, Cisco HyperFlex is built on an API-driven architecture for the interoperability required by DevOps style IT. It integrates into orchestration toolsets and cloud services. Ready for emerging applications. The HX Data Platform is designed to support multiple hypervisors, containers, and bare metal to power existing and new cloud-native workloads. Continuous innovation, Cisco Hyperconverged Infrastructure HyperFlex will continue to expand the boundaries of hyperconverged infrastructure, drawing from innovation in Cisco UCS and ACI.
