Cisco HyperFlex All NVMe Solution

Accelerate critical applications with All NVMe HCI

Facilitating real-time business intelligence starts with infrastructure that can accelerate your database performance. Cisco HyperFlex HX220c M5 All NVMe Nodes combine the simplicity of hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) with a new level of performance. Utilizing Intel Optane technology, HyperFlex All NVMe provides unmatched VM density and the capability to power the most performance- sensitive workloads. 

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 P4800X 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

Intel 3D NAND NVMe SSDs provide 8 TB or 32 TB of raw capacity per node 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.

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.
