Cisco Hyperflex

Performance

Hyperflex has unbeatable performance among hyperconverged solutions and offers both SSD and spinning disks.

Flexibility

Scale storage and compute freely from each other and reuse your UCS servers if you want.

Kubernetes

With the Hyperflex Application Platform, you get support for Kubernetes-as-a-service without VMware or Hyper-V in between.

Cloud-managed

You can easily manage and monitor your clusters from a common view. Via AI you get tips on patches and upgrades.

What does Hyperflex do?

Simplifies

The simpler the system is to handle, the less time is spent on training, management, troubleshooting and life cycle management. Hyperflex is designed so that you can spend your time on value-adding efforts instead of complicated expansion routines or complex troubleshooting.

Gives your containers a home

Most companies need support to be able to handle containers in their platform sooner or later. Using HXAP, you build Kubernetes-as-a-Service for your developers, directly on your Hyperflex cluster. IImportant to point out is that the version of Kubernetes used is 100% upstream, i.e not modified in any way. Because HXAP is based on Ubuntu and KVM, you can also place standard virtual machines in HXAP. Everything is controlled from Intersight.

Speed things up

Usually the performance deteriorates the more functions you activate in the storage system. Not with Hyperflex. Even with deduplication and compression on, the storage system continues to perform just as before. Read this report from ESG which tests performance in several HCI systems.

Integrates

Hyperflex is the only HCI solution with the network integrated in the platform. When provisioning, the necessary networks are configured with correct QoS settings, VLANs, ports and more automatically.

Why Hyperflex?

Start small and easy

Cisco Hyperflex is scalable and amazingly powerful. A cluster can scale up to 64 nodes with multiple petabytes of storage. In many cases, however, you need one or more smaller sites, which is why Cisco designed a smaller system: Hyperflex Edge. With this, you can start with as few as two nodes and also reuse your existing network. This makes Hyperflex Edge an excellent entry level point. Miradot sees high demand for this type of system and therefore has ready-made packaging that suits many of our customers.

Scale right

Through the ability to scale out compute completely independent of storage, you get great flexibility. You can also reuse your Cisco UCS servers as compute nodes in your Hyperflex cluster. If you need more storage, you buy more disks. If you need more CPU power, buy a node without disk.

Cloud-based AI

Via Intersight, you can monitor and manage your Hyperflex clusters from one place. You also get recommendations on patches and upgrades, warnings for incompatible firmware versions and more based on Cisco's analysis for AI.

 
Test yourself
There are several options for you to test, evaluate and explore the possibilities and simplicity of Hyperflex on your own. Via dCloud, you get access to Cisco's labs and environments.
