Cisco has unveiled a new category of storage-optimized servers belonging to the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) family for their data center architecture. The company has announced the UCS S3260 server and next-generation ONE Enterprise Cloud Suite
The new UCS S-Series range was designed to meet the needs of data intensive workloads such as big data, as well as for the implementation of software-defined storage solutions, object storage and data protection.
Cisco offers its new range of servers as tools to manage the rapid growth of unstructured data created by technology trends like Internet of Things, video, mobility, collaboration and analytics.
The UCS S3260 storage server, UCS S’s first model, provides versatility and cloud connectivity to transform your data into intelligence.
With a modular architecture and automation provided by UCS Manager, the S3260 reduces total cost of ownership (TCO) by more than 50 percent, Cisco said.
In addition, from the company, they are affected by the fact that the model reduces daily management operations by 80% compared to traditional servers and reduces energy consumption by 59%.
The new server offers up to 600 terabytes of system storage capacity, cache acceleration and unified I/O connectivity for any kind of data storage technology.
With these capabilities, organizations can leapfrog from inactive data storage in clouds and repositories to dynamic applications on a platform with high scalability.
Cisco data center architecture with the hybrid cloud
On the other hand, Cisco has also announced the new generation of ONE Enterprise Cloud Suite, a hybrid cloud automation software solution that provides a self-service portal that can be customized for end-users, application developers and YOU.
With the solution, teams can deploy up to more than 20 different data center cloud environments, both public and private.
ONE Enterprise Cloud Suite includes four offerings that organizations either can individually or jointly adopt infrastructure automation, service management, cloud management, and big data automation.
ASAP Data Center
These new features are part of Cisco’s next-generation data center architecture, enabling organizations to incorporate the benefits of cloud and on premise data centers.
Cisco’s strategy is to offer a four-pillar data center architecture that enables organizations to “analyze, simplify, automate and protect their data and applications”: the ASAP Data Center.
