Why enterprises are adopting Cisco’s Hyperconverged solution for Windows Server – THR2298


WHAT DOES CLOUD DELIVER YOU? CLOUD DELIVERS YOU OPERATIONS AND IT ON DEMAND. AND THE CONCEPT IS CONVERGING COMPUTANCE CHOICE TOGETHER, RIGHT? CISCO STRONGLY BELIEVES IN THE FACT THAT AS MUCH AS COMPUTER STORAGE IS KEY NETWORKING IS AN EQUALLY BIG PIECE OF THE PUZZLE. THAT’S ONE. FOR THAT VERY REASON WHAT WE ESSENTIALLY DID IS WE BUILT UPON OUR CISCO USC OR COUNTER SYSTEM FOUNDATION. WE STARTED WITH UCS BECAUSE IT ESSENTIALLY SOLVES THE PROBLEM OF CONVERGING NETWORK AND THE FOOTPRINT TO BEGIN WITH. SO WE STARTED OFF WITH HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF UCS DEPLOYMENT AND THEN LAYERED UPON OUR NEXT NEW EDGE ENTERPRISE HYPERFLEX PLATFORM. BUT WE BELIEVE THAT DOES NOT STILL MEET THE SOLUTION — AND FOR THAT ALL OF THESE THINGS COME TOGETHER TO DELIVER THE BEST PLATFORM CALLED CISCO HYPERFLEX. SO ARCHITECTURAL APPROACH, FIRST AND FOREMOST WE ARE THE TOP PERFORMING IN THE INDUSTRY, AND WE’RE GOING INTO THE DEPTH OF WHY IS THAT THE CASE, BUT WE’RE EQUALLY IN A LEADERSHIP POSITION IN OFFERING FABRIC NETWORKING AS PART OF OUR ARCHITECTURE. THE FIRST ONE TO OFFER CLOUD MANAGED HYPERCONVERGENCE. THAT’S FIRST OF ITS OWN KIND. BUT WEEK WALE THE INVESTMENTS WE’RE MAKING AROUND MANAGEMENT COMMUNITIES — ALONG WITH THAT, WE ARE ALSO THE FIRST ONE, VERY RECENTLY WE CAME OUTLET WITH OUR PLATFORMS, AND WE ARE ALSO THE FIRST HYPERCONVERGE PLATFORM. SOFTWARE SOLUTION WILL NOT GIVE YOU THE EXTENT OF THIS INNOVATION WITH SUCH A PACE OF VELOCITY. OKAY. SO LET’S QUICKLY LOOK INTO WHAT’S OUR OFFERING. FIRST AND FOREMOST WE PRESENT ASYMMETRY, WHICH IS DESIGNED FOR ITS CI AND EXTREMELY FLASH FRIENDLY. WE BELIEVE THAT FLASH IS GOING TO BE THE FUTURE IN TERMS OF STORAGE COMPONENT AND STORAGE MEDIA. SO IT’S HIGHLY FLASH FRIENDLY ARCHITECTURE. ON TOP OF THAT, WE ARE SHIPPING WITH WINDOWS SUPPORT, BUT SOON WE’RE GOING TO COME UP WITH WINDOWS 19. AND WE ALSO CHOICE OF FORM FACTOR, LARGE FORM FACTOR. EQUALLY IMPORTANTLY WE OFFER SOFTWARE MANAGEMENT. SO IF YOU WANT TO MANAGE THE PLATFORM WITH POWER SHELL, YOU CAN DO THAT. AND VERY RECENTLY WITH MICROSOFT’S FOCUS ON CONVERGING MANAGEMENT WE’RE ALSO OFFERING AN INTEGRATION WITH WINDOWS. BUT ANY IPs ONLY AS GOOD AS WHAT YOU CAN RUN ON — SO WE HAVE EXPENSIVE VALIDATION AND TESTING THAN WITH ALL THE MICROSOFT APPLICATION SEQUENCES EXCHANGE AND WE ALSO DO INTEGRATE INTO THE BACK OF WINDOWS OF CHOICE. THIS IS JUST A QUICK, AGAIN, DOUBLE CLICK ON FOR WHAT’S COMING TO SET THE CONTEXT OF WHAT’S COMING IN SUBSEQUENT SLIDES. OUR FIVE SYSTEM ARCHITECTURE TREATS EVERY ASSEMBLY SHARE AND SPLITS AND DISTRIBUTES EQUALLY. IN OUR ARCHITECTURE THERE IS NO DATA LIMITATION. YOUR VM DATA, YOUR APPLICATION DATA IS ALMOST ALWAYS FULLY DISTRIBUTED, WHICH GIVES YOU ESSENTIALLY PREDICTABLE PERFORMANCE. IT GIVES YOU ALMOST LIKE A BEST THE CAPACITY. IT’S AN ARCHITECTURE DESIGN PRINCIPLE. AND WHERE IT COMES TO THE BENEFIT IS WHAT YOU WILL SEE IN SUBSEQUENT SLIDES. AND A QUICK SUM OF WHERE THIS ARCHITECTURE CHOICE HELPS, WHAT YOU SEE ON THE SCREEN ON THE RIGHT SIDE YOU HAVE ONE HYPERCONVERGENCE, WHICH IS NOT TREATING THE SYSTEM THE SAME WAY WE DO — THEY DO NOT FULLY DISTRIBUTE THE DATA. AS A RESULT OF WHICH YOU GET NONCHARACTERISTIC PERFORMANCE FOR YOUR VM APPLICATIONS. SOME VM APPLICATIONS GET SOME OF THE BEST OPERATIONS, WHILE OTHERS CAN GO REEL BAD. IN THE CASE OF HYPERFLEX YOU’RE BAND OF STANDARD DEVATION IS REALLY TIGHT. SO WHETHER YOU ARE MIGRATING THE VM ACROSS OR YOU ARE RUNNING JUST MULTIPLE — YOUR PERFORMANCE IS ALWAYS LINEAR AND ALWAYS PREDICTABLE. IT’S VERY IMPORTANT — IN THE SAME UI YOU CAN LAUNCH THE CONTEXT OF HYPERFLEX SO WE CAN PULL UP THE INVENTORY AND MONITORING FOR HYPERFLEX STORAGE AND APPLICATIONS AND ALSO GET PHYSICAL AND VIRTUAL CONTEXT AND ALSO POTENTIALLY MANAGE YOUR UCS HYPERFLEX AND NON-HYPERFLEX WINDOW ENVIRONMENTS. VERY POWERFUL CAPABILITY AND AGAIN WE ARE THE FIRST — AROUND THE FIRST ONES ENT GRATING TO THAT. IN ADDITION TO THIS WE ALSO OFFER — AS I MENTIONED WE ARE THE FIRST ONE TO OFFER CLOUD BASED UCI MANAGEMENT. SO CISCO INTERSIGHT IS A MANAGEMENT PLATFORM AND GIVES YOU INSIGHT INTO YOUR GLOBAL FOOT PRECIPITATE OF ALL THE WINDOW ENVIRONMENTS ON HYPERFLEX AND UCS. IT GIVES YOU ALL THE POLICY BASED ORCHESTRATION SO YOU CAN MANAGE YOUR VM ENVIRONMENTS, YOUR ACCOUNTABILITY ENVIRONMENTS. YOU CAN EPT GREAT YOUR EXISTING MANAGEMENT SOLUTIONS INTO THAT USING OUR API, AND ALSO WHAT’S COOL ABOUT THIS PLATFORM IS WE CREATED THIS WHERE WE MONITOR THE NATURE OF IT PROBLEMS AND SUPPOSE THERE’S SOME STORAGE THAT’S BEING EXCEEDED, BEFORE YOU HIT THE ISSUE, WE AUTOMATICALLY APPLY FOR THE SIGNATURES AND CREATE THE RISK, SO CUSTOMERS WILL NEVER GET IMPACTED. MOST IMPORTANTLY IT IS EFFECTIVE GLOBALLY ACROSS ALL OF YOUR FIT PRINT. SO YOU CAN USE YOUR AZURE CLOUD FOR YOUR AZURE SERVICES, YOUR ASR, YOUR BUNCH OF OTHER DATA USING THE APIs. AND WE ALSO OFFER OTHER OPTIONS. WE BUILD UPON CHECKPOINT AND ALSO INTEGRATION WITH SITE RECOVERY. AND IF YOU HAVE AN EXISTING INVESTMENT INTO THE BACK OF A CHOICE WE DO OFFER THE INTEGRATION FOR THAT AS WELL. THIS IS QUICK SPLASH ON WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU ARE SIZING AND RUNNING A SEQUENCE LIKE ONE ON HYPERFLEX. THIS IS COMPARATIVE STORY DOWN BY A THIRD PARTY. AND WHAT IT SUGGESTS IS WITHIN THE ARCHITECTURE, YOU GET SIGNIFICANTLY BETTER PERFORMANCE WITH A SIGNIFICANTLY LOWER LATENCY. AND AGAIN IN AN APPROPRIATE FASHION, RIGHT? SO IF ANYONE HAS ANY QUALMS OR ANY DOUBTS THE CISCO HYPERFLEX IS PRIME TIME READY, IT’S ABSOLUTELY PRIME TIME READY. AND YOU’LL SEE IN THE SUBSEQUENT SLIDES HOW CUSTOMERS ARE GETTING FULL BENEFITS IN THE ARCHITECTURE WITH HYPERFLEX. AND THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF THE CUSTOMERS. THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF CUSTOMERS WHO APPROACHING APPLICATIONS IN HYPERFLEX — SO IT’S FULLY PRIME TIME READY. LET’S TALK ABOUT THE PROOF OF THE POODING, RIGHT? CASE STUDY NUMBER ONE, SHANGHAI IS THE WORLD’S BUSIEST SHIPPING PORT. IN TERMS OF THE NUMBERS, SO THERE TRANSACTIONS IS IN THE RANGE OF TENS OF MILLIONS OF TONS PER YEAR. YOU CAN ALMOST IMAGINE THE SCALE THESE GUYS ARE OPERATING. AND AGAIN THEY ARE EXPECTING GROWTH, AND THE REQUIREMENTS ARE SORT OF STRAIGHTFORWARD. THEY WANT TO BE OPERATING, THEY WANT TO BE UP 24/7. AND THEY WANT TO SIZE FOR 100 OF THEIR CAPACITY. SO THERE’S NO FACILE OPERATION CENTER. THE ENTIRE FACILITY IS ALWAYS ACTIVE. SO ESSENTIALLY THEY WANT TO BECOME BUSIER FROM BUSIEST. THEY STARTED RUNNING THE PORT SOFTWARE ON HYPERFLEX. HYPERFLEX DELIVERED THEM 200 PERFORMANCE INCREASE, RIGHT? WITH 24/7 UNLIMITED BECAUSE AS I MENTIONED IT’S A HIGHLY RESILIENT ARCHITECTURE. AND EQUALLY IN TERMS OF SIZING, IN TERMS OF OPERATION MANAGEMENT, IT IMPROVED UP TO 20. AT THAT SCALE 30 IMPROVEMENT OF EFFICIENCY IS SIGNIFICANT. AND SO MUCH SO THEY’RE NOT ONLY DEPLOYING THE SEQUENCE IN THEIR ENVIRONMENT BUT THEY’RE STARTING TO DEPLOY THE WORK LOADS. LET’S TALK ABOUT CONFLICTS. THESE GUYS ARE SORT OF INTO ECOMMERCE. THEY OFFER IT SERVICES, AND ECOMMERCE HAS ITS OWN MIND — SO THEY SAID WE WANT TO DEPLOY NOT JUST — BUT WE WANT TO DEPLOY MIXED WORKLOAD. SO WE STARTED WITH HYPERFLEX, OF COURSE, AND HYPERFLEX ESSENTIALLY BROUGHT DOWN THEIR TOTAL FOOTPRINT BY 30 AGAIN BECAUSE OF THE EFFICIENCY IN ARCHITECTURE AND THE WAY WE WORK TOGETHER. SO 20 LESS HARDWARE NODES, BUT LESS HARDWARE NODES ALSO TRANSFERRED INTO LESS SOFTWARE SUBSCRIPTION. ESSENTIALLY 30 LESS TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP. WHAT’S EQUALLY IMPRESSIVE IS THAT WE COULD ACHIEVE THAT BY KEEPING THE VM LOAD PERFORMANCE CONSISTENCY AS HIGH AS 90. WHAT IT MEANS IS THE ENVIRONMENT IS NOT UNDERSIZED AND IT IS SERVING EVEN THE PEAK WORKLOAD IN THE CASE OF CONFLICTS AT THAT SCALE. AGAIN, LATENCIES WERE SIGNIFICANTLY LOWER, AND IOT PERFORMANCE WAS SIGNIFICANTLY HIGH. SO THEY’RE APPLYING THEIR IT ON CISCO HYPERFLEX. SO IN THE WORDS OF THE CEO, HE THEORIZED THAT CISCO HYPERFLEX IS THE ONLY PLATFORM IN WHICH YOU CAN RUN WITH SIGNIFICANTLY LOWER COST AND MUCH EASE OR IN TERMS OF OPERATION EFFICIENCY, THE EFFICIENCY IS MUCH, MUCH HIGHER. SO IF I HAD TO SUM IT UP ALL TOGETHER, AND IF I HAD TO CAPTURE THE SENSE OF WHY ENTERPRISES ARE RUNNING THEIR MISSION CRITICAL APPLICATION AT SCALE ON CISCO HYPERFLEX, THIS SUMS IT VERY WELL. THAT ON AN AVERAGE WHEN GOING FROM AN ARCHITECTURE WHICH IS CLEARLY NOT SIZED WELL OR NOT FOR THE REQUIREMENTS, WE COULD SAVE THE MANAGEMENT TIME GIVEN THE EMBEDDED MANAGEABILITY AND OPERATIONAL EASE UP TO 75. THE RESPONSE TIME GIVEN THE PRODUCTIVE PERFORMANCE IS IMPROVED UP TO 50 COMPARED TO ADDITIONAL IT AND COMPARED TO OTHER IN TERMS OF MAGITUDES. GIVEN THE FULL SYSTEM AND THE FOOTPRINT, AND THE FOUNDATION IS ROCK CISCO HYPERFLEX IS INDUSTRY’S BEST PERFORMING CI PLATFORM. YOU DON’T HAVE TO BUY MY WORD HERE. GO ON GOOGLE. IT’S A THIRD PARTY APPLICATION, AND WE’VE BEEN OUTPOWERING THE IN THE MARKETPLACE. IT’S FULLY SUPPORTED FOR ALL THE MICROSOFT APPLICATIONS THAT MATTER THE MOST. WELL, IF YOU WANT TO HAVE A CHOICE OF HYPERVISOR, YOU DO GET THE CHOICE WITH BOTH. WE DO HAVE AN EDGE OFFERING, SO IF YOU WANT TO RUN IN A REALLY SMALL FOOTPRINT WE DO GIVE AN OPTION. YOU DO HAVE AN OPTION OF RUNNING HYPERFLEX AS A PRIVATE LOAD PLATFORM AND BY GETTING SOME WORK LOADS ON AZURE OR AWS OR GCP, IF YOU WILL, AND INDUSTRIES FIRST — CURRENTLY THE ONLY IF I’M NOT WRONG, AI MISSION READY ACI PLATFORM. SO I WANT TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THAT YOU PLEASE GO TO — AND ARE THERE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS WHY ENTERPRISE ARE OFFERING HYPERFLEX, I’LL BE HAPPY TO ANSWER THOSE QUESTIONS. THANK YOU SO MUCH AND THANKS FOR YOUR TIME TODAY.
