Cisco has announced technology innovations across its entire Data Centre Business Advantage portfolio, including the Cisco Nexus 7000 family, Nexus 5000 family, Nexus 3000, a new ultra-low latency platform, MDS storage switches, Unified Computing System, Data Centre Network Manager (DCNM) and NX-OS, its comprehensive data centre operating system which spans the Cisco data centre portfolio.
With these innovations, Cisco continues to tightly integrate unified fabric, unified computing, and unified network services into a holistic data centre fabric designed to be simple, scalable and secure, delivering any application across any location, within the data centre, across data centres, or to the cloud.
The Cisco data centre fabric enables converged network management and "wire-once" agility from the server to the storage array for both physical and virtualised environments.
With these additions, Cisco further enhances the industry’s most comprehensive and innovative standards-based data centre portfolio, allowing multiple data centres and cloud services to be connected across a common intelligent fabric, delivering architectural flexibility, investment protection and operational simplicity.
“Cisco's latest advances with data centre fabric convergence creates an end-to-end view of the virtualised data centre network down to the virtual machine, helping to provide lower total cost of ownership, reduced complexity, better workload management and security in the cloud,” says Rory Green, Cisco data centre and virtualisation product sales specialist.
