Building a More Application-Centric Data Center
Two forces are shaping the modern data center:
- The push to simplify operations
- New applications to accommodate new trends
These forces bring with them new expectations of how data center infrastructure is being provisioned and used.
Emerging trends such as cloud, big data, and social apps are demanding a much more dynamic, application-aware data center environment. Operations must be greatly simplified and automated. This will help ensure infrastructure can be provisioned at the speed required by this on-demand environment. It will also reduce operating expenses over the long term.
Organizations are also seeking to break down the wall that has existed between applications and infrastructure. The two need to interact in a smarter and more direct way, benefiting customers and employees, while cutting costs.
To meet these challenges, the Cisco Open Network Environment (Cisco ONE) provides a comprehensive portfolio of technologies and solutions. This portfolio helps businesses add programmatic capabilities to their current and future data center infrastructures.
Cisco ONE incorporates both open standards, like representational state transfer (REST), OSGI/Java, OpenFlow, OpenStack, and OpenDaylight. It also incorporates Cisco technologies such as Cisco One Platform Kit (onePK), the Cisco Nexus1000V portfolio, the Cisco Nexus 3000 Series, and the Cisco Nexus 9000 Series with NX-OS.
The network infrastructure is provisioned at application speed. It offers flexible approaches to programmability supported by a portfolio of products, and based on the three pillars: platform APIs, controllers and agents, and integrated network overlays.
Cisco ONE offers deep programmatic access to network infrastructure, allowing applications, orchestration platforms, and other tools to gain visibility as well as control network behavior.
