With flexible options for powerful compute using Intel Xeon processors DDR4 RAM, and the ability to effortless expand compute resources, the UCS offers bladed and rack mounted solutions to suit the business needs.

Nimble Storage

Nimble Storage provides the high performance storage system that underpins the infrastructure stack. Nimble’s Unified Flash Fabric provides a single architecture for All Flash and Adaptive Flash arrays, all managed as one, delivering high performance, capacity and features to suit any workload and any budget.

Application Integration

A range of plugins, add-ons and drivers provide full integration including VSS for Microsoft application consistency during backups and VMware SRM for automated site recovery.

Simple Management

SmartStack is extremely easy to manage, not only because of the intuitive interfaces used to navigate the systems, but also because the components have been specifically designed to ease administration. With additional software available to extend these capabilities further, providing multi-tenancy, reporting and orchestration, SmartStack doesn’t require extensive training or time to use properly.


SmartStack Integrated Infrastructure

SmartStack integrates storage, networking, and computing and scales seamlessly in line with your changing business requirements. While other approaches tend to proliferate operational complexity and inefficiency, increase costs, and hamper IT/business productivity, SmartStack provides a proven reference architecture to streamline deployment and time-to-value.

The SmartStack is a Cisco Validated Design (CVD), solutions that have been designed, tested and documented to facilitate and accelerate customer deployments. CVDs deliver a validated design, documentation and support to guide customers from design to deployment.

“SmartStack does exactly what is says on the tin. To go from an idea, to gaining approval and then installation in the time taken for this solution has been a complete revelation. Its agility and scalability will have a big positive impact on supporting RNIB’s strategy of improving the lives of blind and partially sighted people in the UK.”
