Cisco HyperFlex All NVMe Solution

Unleash your business-critical applications with All NVMe performance

Today's digitally driven business requires high-performance, scale-out solutions to deliver the resources you need, when you need them. Cisco HyperFlex All NVMe Nodes combine the simplicity and scalability of hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) with the performance of Intel Optane technology to drive business outcomes in a digital world.

Why organizations choose NVMe?

Faster access to data

NVMe delivers higher throughput, lower latency, and more consistent response times to improve customer and end-user experience when accessing data.

Enhanced digital services

Power performance-sensitive, real-time customer and user experiences to differentiate your business and give you a competitive edge.

Maximum VM density

Meet application-performance requirements with greater infrastructure density to reduce energy and floor-space consumption.

Future ready

The latest NVMe drive technology combined with the modular scale-out architecture of HCI delivers industry-leading long-term investment protection.

Workload performance testing of hyperconverged approaches on Cisco HyperFlex

Every day, new workloads emerge and existing workloads are scaled to meet evolving business needs. Learn how Cisco HyperFlex is industry tested to handle new workloads and scale existing ones to meet evolving business needs.

All NVMe HCI performance comparison

The Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) previously showed that the HyperFlex All Flash Node outperforms other hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solutions. But a recent ESG validation shows that the HyperFlex HX220c M5 All NVMe Nodes provide even greater performance than HyperFlex All Flash, making it the top performing HCI solution.

Features of HyperFlex All NVMe HCI Nodes

Full NVMe accelerated HCI storage

NVMe drives are integrated directly into the CPU through the multiple parallel PCIe bus lanes to eliminate storage bottlenecks, while full RAS features delivered through the Intel Volume Management Driver maintain usability.

Intel Optane accelerates PCIe and RAS caching

The cache and write log use Intel Optane DC SSDs to deliver lower latency and higher throughput to move larger data sets closer to the CPU for greater Quality of Service (QoS).

Capacity tier

The latest Intel 3D NAND NVMe SSDs provide up to 15 TB of raw capacity per drive and are optimized for read performance to deliver critical data in real time.

Cisco HyperFlex acceleration engine

This optional acceleration engine offloads compression operations from the Intel Xeon Scalable CPUs, freeing more cores to improve virtual machine density, lowering latency, and reducing storage needs.

ITX customer case study

ITX, a global mobility leader, hyper-accelerates its ERP database queries from hours to seconds thanks to Cisco HyperFlex.

Intel Optane technology

Intel Optane Solid State Drives help eliminate data center storage bottlenecks and allow bigger data sets. They accelerate apps, reduce transaction costs for latency-sensitive workloads, and improve TCO.

HyperFlex models

Cisco HyperFlex offers flexible node options including Hybrid, All Flash, All NVMe, and Edge options.
