Cisco Announces Intent to Acquire Springpath – Taking a Leap Forward in Hyperconvergence
I am proud to share that today Cisco announced its intent to acquire Springpath, Inc., a leader in hyperconvergence software based in Sunnyvale, Calif.
Cisco first made an investment in Springpath in 2015. A year later, we jointly co-engineered and developed Cisco HyperFlex Systems, a fully-integrated hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solution. Combining Springpath’s distributed file system designed specifically for HCI with the industry-leading Cisco Unified Computing Systems platform resulted in the first deeply optimized hyperconverged solution for our customers. Customers finally got a hyperconvergence solution with much greater operational simplicity, significantly better user interface, and highly flexible and policy-driven scaling.
HyperFlex is the hyperconverged platform of choice for 1800+ customers across a multitude of industries around the globe. The unique approach Cisco has taken to HCI has resulted in the industry’s highest performing HCI system. This has allowed our customers to bring the simplicity of hyperconvergence to mission-critical applications in their data center. In addition, integration with other Cisco assets helps bring the simplicity of hyperconvergence into edge and Remote and Branch Office (ROBO) locations in their operational footprint.
