Cisco reinforces HyperFlex hyperconvergence system with power, management features


It has been almost a year since Cisco jumped into the hyperconverged arena and while the HyperFlex business has done well – landing 1,100 customers — the company is expecting a burst of upgrades to significantly speed and simplify management of its HyperFlex systems.

The company entered the arena last year with products that included the HX Data Platform, which joined SpringPath software with Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) servers to form a distributed storage system using solid-state drives and spinning disks from server clusters.

Cisco says HX Data and HyperFlex systems are extensible to support a range of hypervisors, bare metal and containerized environments in the future, Cisco says. HyperFlex will also be included in Cisco’s Application Centric Infrastructure SDN, and hybrid cloud and multi-cloud orchestration. Future support for ACI will result in an SDN that provides automated, policy-based network deployment that provides microsegmentation and multitenancy, Cisco said at the time of the announcement.
