IBM and Cisco, global leaders in the IT industry, have jointly developed VersaStack, the world’s first integrated infrastructure. VersaStack combines the innovation of Cisco UCS Integrated Infrastructure with the efficiency of the IBM Storwize storage system. Data Integrity has long been a leader in selling IBM Storage solutions. With the VersaStack solution, we bring the power of Cisco to the converged infrastructure space.
The VersaStack solution can help you accelerate the deployment of IT infrastructure. It reduces costs by more efficiently managing information and resources while maintaining your ability to adapt to business change. It is backed by Cisco Validated Designs and IBM RedBooks to provide faster delivery of applications, greater IT efficiency, and less risk.
With Cisco UCS Management spanning from the data center to the edge, VersaStack now addresses the entire spectrum of data center workloads, including:
- Cisco UCS servers and IBM FlashSystem V9000 storage with the VMware vSphere hypervisor for performance-critical data center workloads
- Cisco UCS servers and IBM Storwize V7000 storage with the VMware vSphere hypervisor, which addresses virtualized enterprise and midsize businesses.
- Cisco UCS Mini and IBM Storwize V7000 storage with the VMware vSphere hypervisor, which targets edge workloads, Remote Office Back Office (ROBO), factory, oil platform, and remote location applications, and use cases.
The VersaStack offering is a solution that contains server hardware, a disk storage system, networking equipment, and systems management software all integrated into a single platform. Combined, some would refer to as “cloud in a box”, which helps to position you for the 3rd Computing Platform.
