In order to meet a broader spectrum of business services, UCS Mini has almost always required the use of an external storage area network (SAN), and its accompanying cost and complexity. Until now.
Dynamic Hypercovergence provider Pivot3, in partnership with Cisco, removes that cost and complexity of maintaining an external SAN and consequently reduces the costs associated with rack space, power, cooling, and administrative resources while significantly reducing your data center footprint by up to 54%. By unifying the compute and storage resources contained in each UCS Mini blade, Pivot3 and Cisco deliver a simplified, self-contained and unified platform designed for efficiency, resiliency, and game-changing performance.
Cisco UCS® Mini, powered by Pivot3 delivers a total virtualized IT infrastructure solution that unlocks enterprise capabilities in a small, efficient form factor. By adopting a modular, building block approach through unifying compute, fabric, storage, and virtualization in a single architecture, your organization can rapidly scale deployments and increase responsiveness to line of business requests as needs grow. The combined solution maximizes the use of existing resources, accelerates time-to-value and streamlines operations so your IT staff can deploy, manage, and globally protect your business services with an optimized experience at an affordable price.
