Presidio has been involved in leading the charge with respect to next generation datacenter technologies for many years. Our virtualization expertise can integrate hyper-converged platforms with any virtual workloads and Cisco infrastructure. Cisco has announced the release of Cisco HyperFlex Systems, a new Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) stack. Cisco HyperFlex is built on the Cisco Unifed Computing and integrates a distributed hyperconverged data platform called Cisco HX Data Platform, along with the VMware hypervisor and Cisco Nexus networking, all in a single HCI stack.
What is Cisco HyperFlex?
The basics of a starter edition Cisco HyperFlex stack are as follows:
- 3 x HyperFlex Systems
- 2 x Fabric Interconnects
- HX Data Platform Software
The HyperFlex systems (HX220c and HX240c) will be the Cisco’s enterprise grade hyperconverged platform.
The HyperFlex cluster will be created with rack mount systems that will contribute both compute and storage, for linear growth. As your environment grows, both compute and storage can be scaled non-disruptively.
