Cisco Launches Next Generation Storage Networking Innovations PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 19 April 2017 08:20

Data stored in global data centers will increase by five-fold to reach 915 Exabyte by 2020, according to the recent Cisco® Global Cloud Index. Cisco today announced technology innovations for next-generation storage networking that will help customers access, manage and automate this stored data to better enable digital business goals.

With this announcement, Cisco offers storage networking customers 32Gb fibre channel performance across an integrated MDS storage director and Unified Computing System (UCS) fabric, storage networking analytics, and non-volatile memory express (NVMe) over FC support for flash memory appliances.

“Cisco continues to be strongly committed to the storage networking market, and we are pleased to deliver leading-edge capabilities for the digital economy while also preserving customer investments,” said Thomas Scheibe, senior director of product management, Cisco Data Center Solutions. “With the simple installation of a cost-effective module, customers can upgrade to next-generation storage networks that offer 32Gb fabrics with SAN analytics and flash memory support.”

To meet SAN scalability requirements, Cisco is collaborating with Broadcom/Emulex and Cavium/Qlogic to provide customers with high bandwidth storage connectivity, and is providing 32Gb Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapter with seamless support on the Cisco UCS C-Series.  The 32Gb HBA’s are designed to address requirements  of modern networked storage systems that utilize high performance and low latency solid state storage drives for caching and persistent storage, as well as hard disk drive arrays.

Deep Visibility with Integrated Analytics Engine.

With a built-in, high performing, hardware-based analytics engine on Cisco MDS 32G Modules, organizations gain complete visibility across SAN in real time – every exchange, every sequence, every packet at line rate. Customers will be able to analyze in real time FC exchanges and report on various metrics, providing comprehensive and timely monitoring of any potential performance issues in the network to make informed operational decisions.
