- Q: Why did Cisco choose WHIPTAIL?
- A: The market is changing - application performance as a use case both for compute and I/O is becoming more central to the server domain, creating this need for solid-state acceleration integrated into the fabric-computing domain. Bridging the gap between increased application performance demand from servers and what traditional storage systems can deliver, requires solid state memory systems to be closer to the application.

WHIPTAIL is a market leading company with top talent and a product architecture that strengthens Cisco's UCS performance. The software will be part of the converged infrastructure, helping to better meet customer needs by simplifying the data center with solid-state memory integrated into the fabric-computing domain as part of a holistic solution. With WHIPTAIL's technology, customers will be able to provision compute, I/O and solid-state memory capacity from a single management interface.
