IT decision makers expect the typical application portfolio to grow by 50%.1
Today, applications are your business. They drive improved customer engagement, operational efficiency, competitiveness and new revenue streams. Applications are also becoming more virtualized, microservice-based and hyper-distributed across on-prem, multicloud and edge infrastructure.
Achieving the critical reliability, availability and predictable performance you need requires a modern, end-to-end infrastructure—an infrastructure that is self-monitoring, self-analyzing, and self-optimizing.
Cisco Unified Computing enables you to increase performance, reduce TCO and simplify management. Cisco’s broad infrastructure portfolio can power all your application workloads, anywhere you need them.
Digital and IT transformation demand that enterprises modernize their compute infrastructure to achieve unprecedented levels of performance, flexibility, scale, and intelligence.
This requires a portfolio of systems—scale up or out, rack or blade servers, converged, hyperconverged and software-defined storage infrastructures—all based on a common, programmable foundation. Infrastructure resources must be easy to secure and provision, while supporting modern automation, orchestration, management and analytics tools.
Cisco computing architectures are built from the ground up with programmability. Unified, open APIs enable interoperability with management and automation tools, while accelerating and simplifying the deployment and management of both infrastructure and applications.
The digital experience is now the gateway to your customers and the standard bearer of your company’s brand. But as apps become more distributed, more intelligent and more real-time, gaining visibility into the underlying infrastructure has become more complex. Traditional monitoring solutions that cannot correlate application topologies to business transactions and map critical customer pathways leave organizations blind to the changes needed in the underlying infrastructure that will assure performance, security and scalability of their apps.
Cisco solutions provide greater visibility and insight across your applications and infrastructure. They enable automated action to optimize application and infrastructure performance to ensure the best possible digital experiences for your customers, employees and partners.
93% of cloud adopters intend to use multiple clouds in the next 12 months.1
Gone are the days when applications and infrastructure were located only at the data center. Today’s digital demands require the ability to run across many clouds and a smarter, more powerful edge. Every cloud and every edge infrastructure must be able to run any application securely and with predictable performance.
Today’s edge must also be powerful enough to run today’s modern, compute-intensive applications and perform near-real-time analytics on your most valuable resource: your data. Edge analytics are transforming possibilities in retail, factories, healthcare, cities and more.
Cisco has built a comprehensive set of architectures with optional tools to enhance the management, functionality and security of your multicloud and edge environments. With Cisco, you have a choice of multicloud frameworks that you can use for virtualized and containerized support across all of your clouds and edge environments.
A more distributed, data center-to-multicloud-to-edge infrastructure creates more vulnerabilities and entry points for today’s stealthy cyberthreats.
Strong perimeter security at your data center is no longer enough. Comprehensive security requires a multi-layered strategy, including network segmentation, intelligent threat detection and prevention, faster response capabilities and more. A modern security strategy requires an infrastructure that isn’t simply an exposure point to threats, but is instead a proactive defense system that protects against threats.
How do you keep data safe while you’re running applications in both on-prem data centers and in public, private and hybrid clouds?
Cisco solutions provide comprehensive, integrated security for the modern data center and are uniquely positioned to protect workloads everywhere.
How do you manage an infrastructure that’s distributed everywhere—residing on-prem, within multiple clouds and across a broad expanse of edge locations?
You need flexible management tools that provide visibility and insight, and that can quickly take action on a global scale. The infrastructure must not only enable you to monitor what’s happening, it must proactively alert, troubleshoot, advise and help resolve problems before they impact your business.
Cisco has designed comprehensive management tools that provide visibility, insight and manageability across your entire infrastructure—from data center...to cloud...to edge—so you can simplify manageability and optimize business operations.
