Today IT organizations must deliver more services with speed and agility while managing exponential data growth and operating within constrained, even reduced budgets. At the same time, data centers are increasingly consuming infrastructure to keep up with the rapidly evolving and growing demand for the new services and applications.
Cloud computing represents a new model for IT-IT as a service. Cloud computing promises not only a more efficient IT infrastructure but also a greater level of agility, making IT more responsive to business requirements.
Global technology leaders Cisco and EMC are collaborating to offer customers a choice of industry-leading virtual infrastructure architectures that can simplify, automate, and transform your IT while helping you accelerate the journey to cloud computing:
- Build your own:Solutions built using tested and proven products and services
- Reference architectures through VSPEX: Prepackaged reference architectures
- Converged infrastructure through joint venture VCE:Vblock, a transformative way to consume virtual infrastructure
These infrastructure architectures are designed to help IT accelerate the transition from a traditional to a virtualized and automated service-oriented data center architecture.
Watch EMC™s Chairman, President and CEO share insights on the Cisco-EMC partnership and upcoming innovations that will accelerate customers migration to cloud.
SAP HANA Solutions
Organizations are generating more data than ever before, from customer transaction data to supplier delivery data. SAP HANA is designed to handle massive amounts of detailed data in real time. Using the in-memory SAP HANA database, organizations can gain insight into business operations, react quickly to changing priorities, and reduce cost.
A high performance, scalable infrastructure that can store, analyze and process data in real time is essential to SAP HANA. Cisco and EMC deliver a choice of solutions for SAP HANA that makes it easier for organizations to run big data, growth-oriented applications, and analytics. These solutions combine EMCs expertise in storing, protecting, and managing vast amounts of data with the power of Cisco Unified Computing System.
Cisco solutions improve decision-making by adding more computing and storage resources as data and user demand grows.
