IT architecture is dictated by applications and their evolving requirements have resulted in a transformed relationship between servers, storage systems and network fabrics. Whilst virtualised environments and first-generation hyper converged systems solve some problems they also fail to deliver massive scalability and lack lifecycle management features and strong data security. This white paper discusses Cisco HyperFlex Data Platform Software and how the platform’s approach to architecture and software-defined storage allows you to eliminate storage silos that complicates your IT infrastructure.
