workloads, enabling greater mobility and automation.
Integrated data protection with VM-level backup policies and
WAN-optimized replication to a second site or the cloud for disaster
recovery contributes to greater resiliency.
Unparalleled efficiency with OmniStack Data Virtualization
Platform. OmniStack manages data segments in 4K to 8K chunks and
deduplicates redundant segments before data hits disk to
eliminate unnecessary read/write IO. Deduplicating, compressing and
optimizing data in real-time saves IOPS and capacity on primary
storage and throughout the workload’s lifecycle.
Dramatic TCO savings, with a 3x reduction in costs with
OmniStack-powered hyperconverged infrastructure versus traditional
SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
a leader in hyperconverged infrastructure for the software-defined data
center, announced today at VMworld 2014 that it will release a new
version of its OmniStack Data Virtualization Platform to deliver greater
flexibility for operating on x86 industry-standard systems. In addition
to its own packaging of OmniStack on Dell x86 appliances, offered as
OmniCube, SimpliVity will now provide OmniStack Integrated Solution with
Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) C-Series Rack-mount systems.

eight to twelve core data center functions on Cisco UCS C240 Rack-mount
servers, including the hypervisor, compute, storage, network switching,
backup, replication, cloud gateway, caching, WAN optimization, real-time
deduplication and more. Clustering multiple units forms a shared
resource pool and delivers high-availability and efficient scaling of
performance and capacity. Instances of OmniStack-powered hyperconverged
infrastructure within and across data centers form a federation that can
be globally managed from a single interface via VMware vCenter.
OmniStack stands apart with:
The new OmniStack Integrated Solution with Cisco UCS offering creates
new markets for SimpliVity’s channel partners, and allows SimpliVity to

“SimpliVity is thrilled with the market’s response to our unique Data
Virtualization Platform. We are not the ‘first to market,’ however, we
offer the most complete solution. As we engaged with some of the most
sophisticated customers and partners across the globe, demand for an
integrated solution with Cisco Unified Computing Systems became a
recurring theme. SimpliVity is committed to delivering the best of both
worlds: on one hand, x86 cloud economics, reducing TCO by 3x; on the
other hand, tier-1 enterprise capabilities: performance,
data-efficiency, data protection and global unified management. We are
pleased to introduce our OmniStack Data Virtualization Platform, now
integrated with Cisco UCS C240 Rack-mount Servers.”
Arun Taneja, founder, president and consulting analyst at Taneja Group
“Mid-size and large enterprises often have a strategic relationship with
a server vendor. SimpliVity’s partnership with Cisco and the
availability of OmniStack with the UCS platform will instantly expand
its market size by a significant amount. Cisco also benefits in that UCS
will now find itself in one of the hottest markets—HyperConvergence.
However, the customer is the ultimate winner with a broader choice now
available to them.”
