OmniStack with Cisco UCS C240 M4

#1 Deployed Hyperconverged Platform for Cisco UCS

Together, SimpliVity and Cisco deliver hyperconverged infrastructure running on Cisco UCS, the fastest-growing x86 server platform. SimpliVity’s OmniStack Integrated Solution with Cisco UCS converges eight to 12 core data center functions into Cisco UCS C240 rackmount servers. Those functions include the hypervisor, compute, storage, network switching, backup, replication, cloud gateway, caching, WAN optimization, real-time deduplication, and more.

  • SimpliVity’s OmniStack Integrated Solution with Cisco UCS is Cisco-compatible, with a published reference architecture with Cisco’s management platform, UCS Manager.
  • SimpliVity’s integration with Cisco UCS Director is Cisco Compatible and IVT (Interoperability Validation Testing) certified by Cisco.
  • SimpliVity is a Cisco Preferred Solution Partner.
  • SimpliVity is also a TSANet Partner so customers leveraging SimpliVity’s solutions for Cisco have a one-call support experience.

Fully integrated system. This solution combines Cisco UCS C240 M4 servers with OmniStack to assimilate all IT infrastructure and services below the hypervisor. The Cisco UCS C-Series rackmount server delivers unified computing in an industry-standard form factor to reduce total cost of ownership and increase agility. The C240 M4 is a storage and I/O-optimized, 2RU server that delivers industry-leading performance for the most data-intensive workloads. You can get three times the TCO savings using OmniStack running on Cisco UCS.

A broad portfolio of all-flash and hybrid solutions meets any price, performance, and capacity requirement, for any workload. All-flash solutions are designed for the most demanding, data intensive applications. Hybrid solutions provide unmatched price for performance for data center workloads from core to edge.

OmniStack Data Virtualization Platform. This is a globally aware file system with data optimization techniques that enables a single shared, scalable compute and storage resource pool across multiple sites. It provides efficient data storage, management, and mobility. OmniStack natively includes policy-based VM-centric backup and WAN-optimized replication for disaster recovery, reducing backup and restore times from hours to minutes. All management is done at the VM level using familiar interfaces such as VMware vCenter and Cisco UCS Director.

OmniStack Accelerator Card. This purpose-built PCIe card deduplicates, compresses, and optimizes all data inline, in real-time, at inception, globally. On average, customers achieve 40:1 data efficiency while increasing application performance.

The OmniStack solution for Cisco UCS C-Series Systems addresses a range of enterprise needs.

OmniStack with Cisco UCS C240 M4 Specifications  

* Effective capacity varies by environment, and is a function of the realized deduplication and compression rates. The capacities mentioned above offer a conservative range based on compression and deduplication rates found in standard primary storage use cases.

** RAM Usable capacity represents estimated memory resources available to virtual applications.

*** For dual CPU models, three additional slots are available for any combination of these NICs - 2 x 10 Gbe (SFP+), 2 x 1 Gbe (RJ45) or 4 x 1 Gbe (RJ45).
