While traditional brick and mortar data centers meet the requirements of many IT organizations, there are some customers that require a different solution.
As the Senior Vice President, Global Government Solutions Group, I am happy to announce today the Cisco Containerized Data Center offering for government and commercial customers.
“Containerized,” or modular data centers, offer a flexible option for organizations that need to quickly deploy new data capacity. Built into weatherized ISO containers, these solutions consist of a complete Cisco unified data center, built as a self-contained, pre-integrated environment. In response to changing, mission-critical operations, the entire container can be transported wherever it is needed.
This scalable, adaptable solution is designed to meet the needs of:
* Customers requiring support at remote locations,
* Service providers looking for a simple and incremental entry into cloud
* Military and intelligence units out in the field
* Organizations looking to expand without major capital investment, and,
* Universities needing a cost-effective way to add more data capacity.
The Cisco CDC management system developed by our in-house experts allows users to control every aspect of the data center twenty-four hours a day,seven days a week. No other industry product offers complete real-time monitoring, alerting, analytics and diagramming, and reporting tools. With this powerful software, users can manage the modular data center effectively in any setting.
The Cisco Containerized Data Center takes advantage of the Cisco Data Center Business Advantage framework to optimize the flexibility, agility and utility of the Cisco CDC. Data Center Business Advantage transforms today’s data center from separate silos (servers, storage, and networks, L4-7 services, security, etc) into a single integrated environment with set of shared resources and a consolidated management model. Built upon Cisco’s industry-leading portfolio of data center products and a world-class ecosystem of partners, Cisco Data center Business Advantage delivers faster turn-up of services, lowered TCO and a transformative IT delivery model.
