Nutanix Announces the Industry’s Only Hyperconverged Solution for Cisco UCS Blades
Today, we are at the .NEXT On-Tour event in Boston and are bringing more exciting news about continuous innovation. A number of vendors, including Nutanix™, offer hyperconverged solutions running on Cisco® UCS® C-Series rackmount servers. However, the majority of UCS® shipments are B-Series Blade Servers. Nutanix pioneers again and addresses this deficiency by announcing planned support for Cisco UCS® blades. Nutanix™ doesn’t stop there. Nutanix™ is also planning to support additional all-flash and storage-only rackmount server configurations, which will further complement our broad swath of support for UCS®.
Solving the UCS B-Series Blade Server Challenge
Today, UCS B200-M4 blades are limited to 3.2TB of all-flash raw storage. The limited flash, in many cases, is inadequate for storage capacity requirements. Cisco® and the other hyperconverged manufacturers have consequently limited their solutions to rackmount servers.
But just as customers drove Nutanix’s initial support of Cisco® C-Series, they also pushed for a hyperconverged option for their more prevalent B-Series Blade Server deployments. Cisco® customers from boutique businesses to Global 500 organizations, from commercial to government, and from Pasadena to Pune have been requesting Nutanix software on both UCS® blade and rackmount servers. Nutanix™ has responded with plans for the only hyperconverged software with integrated blade server support.
