Cisco today announced technology innovations across its entire Data Center Business Advantage portfolio, including Cisco Nexus 7000 family, Nexus 5000 family, Nexus 3000, a new ultra-low latency platform, MDS storage switches, Unified Computing System, Data Center Network Manager (DCNM) and NX-OS, its comprehensive data center operating system which spans the Cisco data center portfolio.
With these innovations, Cisco continues to tightly integrate Unified Fabric, Unified Computing, and Unified Network Services into a holistic data center fabric designed to be simple, scalable and secure, delivering any application across any location, within the data center, across data centers, or to the cloud.
The Cisco data center fabric enables converged network management and ‘wire-once’ agility from the server to the storage array for both physical and virtualized environments. With these additions, Cisco further enhances the industry’s most comprehensive and innovative standards-based data center portfolio, allowing multiple data centers and cloud services to be connected across a common intelligent fabric, delivering architectural flexibility, investment protection and operational simplicity.
