Converged Infrastructure for any deployment model
Cisco’s portfolio of integrated and hyperconverged systems are optimized for popular infrastructure use cases, applications, and technology transition points. Examples include hybrid cloud, desktop virtualization, enterprise and vertical applications, in-memory databases, analytics, and big data.
Cisco is recognized as a leader in the converged infrastructure market segment. Our portfolio of integrated and hyperconverged systems help organizations accelerate deployment of infrastructure with less risk while bringing new levels of speed and efficiency to IT.
Integrated systems based on Cisco UCS infrastructure and top storage technology from partners are combined into pre-engineered, tested, and supported systems designed to operate as one unit. Integrated systems can enable enterprises to deploy and scale applications faster while reducing risk and TCO at the same time.
Cisco HyperFlex Systems is the next generation of hyperconverged infrastructure. It combines compute, storage, and networking into an easy-to-use system that brings new levels of speed and efficiency to IT.

Data centers are shifting toward heavily virtualized private, hybrid, and public cloud computing models running on industry-standard, commodity hardware systems. These environments require uniform design points that can be repeated for ease of management and scalability.
It is not surprising that these factors have led to the need for predesigned computing, networking, and storage building blocks optimized to lower the initial design cost, simplify management, and enable horizontal scalability and high levels of utilization.
Cisco, working with our technology and channel partners, provides a range of integrated and converged infrastructure solutions based on UCS Integrated Infrastructure:
- FlexPod with NetApp
- VCE VBlock Systems
- Cisco Solutions for VSPEX with EMC
- VersaStack Solution with IBM
- SmartStack Solution with Nimble Storage
Reference architectures for our integrated infrastructure solutions are documented as Cisco Validated Designs. Find them in the Cisco Design Zone.

High-performance distributed systems demand robust, fabric-centric infrastructure to efficiently scale and support a broader range of applications. Cisco HyperFlex Systems is a new hyperconverged solution that seamlessly unifies networking and compute with a next-generation data platform for end-to-end simplicity for IT velocity.
HyperFlex is built on the Cisco UCS platform. It is part of a complete data center architecture that supports traditional, converged, and hyperconverged systems with common policies and infrastructure management. HyperFlex unlocks the potential of Hyperconverged Infrastructure, so customers can extend the benefits of distributed storage technology to more applications and use cases.
HyperFlex brings the agility, scalability, and pay-as-you-grow economics of cloud to on-premise infrastructure. The result is that IT can be more agile, efficient, and adaptable.
