Cisco HyperFlex HX-Series

The next generation of hyperconvergence is here

Unify compute, storage, and networking. Our HyperFlex HX Data Platform is a high-performance, flash optimised distributed file system that delivers a wide range of enterprise-grade data management and optimisation services. HX Data Platform is optimised for flash, reducing SSD wear while delivering high performance and low latency without compromising on data management or storage efficiency.


Features

Simplify data management

Simplified data management

Dramatically simplify your daily operations. Integrated data management functionality for applications includes instant provisioning, cloning, snapshots, replication for disaster recovery protection, and data-at-rest encryption.

Optimize your data

Continuous data optimisation

Always-on inline data deduplication and inline compression provide highly-efficient resource utilisation, reducing the IT footprint.

Flash Optimised

Flash Optimised

The log structured file system writes to SSDs sequentially, reducing flash wear while delivering blazing fast performance at low latency.

Independent scaling

Independent scaling

The HX Data Platform is designed for independent scaling of compute, caching, and capacity, giving you full flexibility to scale your environment based on evolving business needs.

Dynamic data distribution

Dynamic data distribution

Incoming data is more securely distributed and optimised across servers and storage tiers in the cluster to eliminate performance bottlenecks and achieve high IO performance.

Architecture

ArchitectureHyperFlex is engineered on the Cisco UCS platform. It is part of a data centre architecture that supports traditional, converged, and hyperconverged systems with common policies and infrastructure management.

Bridge to next-generation IT: HyperFlex is built on an API-driven architecture for the interoperability required by DevOps-style IT. It integrates into orchestration toolsets and cloud services.

Ready for emerging applications: The HX Data Platform is designed to support multiple hypervisors, containers, and bare metal to power existing and new cloud-native workloads.

Continuous innovation: HyperFlex will continue to expand the boundaries of hyperconverged infrastructure, drawing from innovation in Cisco UCS and ACI.

Software

Cisco HyperFlex Systems run on HyperFlex HX Data Platform Software, version 2.6. The software supports VMware vSphere, versions 6.0 and 6.5.
