Leader in hyperconvergence delivers superior data protection, simplified management, and lower TCO for ROBO
Westborough, Mass.—February 18, 2016—SimpliVity, a leader in hyperconverged infrastructure revolutionizing enterprise IT, today, announced a new hyperconverged offering to deliver unified management and simplified data protection for all remote enterprise sites. The OmniStack Solution with Cisco UCS for Remote Sites centralizes management so there is no need for on-site IT expertise, and improves data protection with efficient backups over bandwidth-constrained WAN links – with a price point that is up to 45% lower than alternative hyperconverged solutions.
Enterprises today still struggle with maintaining their remote office / branch office (ROBO) locations, especially with enterprise-grade disaster recovery. IT usually prefers to perform backups centrally, but ROBOs do not typically have the required wide-area network (WAN) bandwidth to perform the operations; instead, they are forced to manage backups locally. This puts many enterprises at risk – central IT has limited visibility into local IT operations, regulatory compliance, frequency of backups in case of a disaster, or even potential legal issues due to lost or stolen data.
Orderable this quarter, the OmniStack Solution with Cisco UCS for Remote Sites, addresses these pain points by taking the “remote” out of ROBO. SimpliVity’s hyperconverged infrastructure combines all core data center functions, including the hypervisor, compute, storage, networking switching, data protection, and more, onto Cisco UCS C240 rack-mount servers. The solution massively simplifies the IT infrastructure, allowing the enterprise to centrally manage ROBO sites from a single interface, Cisco UCS Manager, and provide faster, more reliable data protection, increased application performance, improved WAN optimization, and higher staff productivity.
“Enterprises nowadays are looking to streamline their ROBO IT management. They know that it’s not sustainable or scalable to deploy full IT operations at every remote office and they’re looking to utilize IT resources on more valuable projects than maintaining disparate ROBO systems,” said Jesse St. Laurent, vice president of product strategy, SimpliVity. “The new OmniStack Solution with Cisco UCS for Remote Sites provides our customers with the flexibility to remotely control IT operations, while improving productivity, application performance, and data protection. Best of all, we’re able to deliver our hyperconverged solutions at a lower price compared to other vendors.”
