Cisco: The storage architecture you envision is closer than it appears


The disruption that cloud has triggered in the marketplace has many organizations looking for a deeper level of expertise and experience from their solution vendors. Cisco has long been known as the top experts in networking, and has grown in reputation as makers of the most robust x86 servers available. Lesser known however are the software solutions available for purchase from Cisco, and the role that Cisco UCS S-series Storage Servers play in a modern storage cloud.

This new approach with a software defined storage architecture may not be top of mind for IT architects and Network Infrastructure experts, but it should be. Storage to many is still imagined as a refrigerator-sized box in a rack with a large door, when a superior architecture for modern applications is actually comprised of a cluster of standard nodes as building blocks. Cisco UCS S3260 is an ideal building block for modern storage clusters, and Cisco has several validated designs with different software offerings to provide customers with freedom of choice.

Object Storage is a software solution that is ideal for the networking throughput and storage density designed into the Cisco UCS S3260 Storage Server. As of August 11th, I am happy to share updates to our object storage solution with SwiftStack, a San Francisco based software partner on our global price list for the past year. These are the result of collaboration directly with end users who are looking to Cisco as the top-level experts for data center solutions across networking, compute, and storage.
