Are you planning a visit to San Francisco on May 22-24? Add Pure Accelerate to your itinerary while in the city by the bay. And be sure to visit the Cisco booth to learn about what’s new and what’s coming from Cisco for FlashStack.

Here is a quick preview of Cisco’s Pure Accelerate plans as a premier event sponsor.

Breakout session Wednesday May 22 2:45 pm – 3:30 pm. Led by Siva Sivakumar, Cisco’s  Director for Cisco UCS solutions, learn how Cisco and Pure Storage work together to deliver responsive and simple solutions that are multicloud and multisite ready for scalable digital transformations.

At Cisco’s booth: Theater and demonstrations

See Cisco’s latest Cisco MDS SAN switches. These new Cisco MDS 9000 32G switches (the 48-Port MDS 9148T and 96-Port MDS 9396T) feature auto-zoning that facilitate detection of new host and storage devices to eliminate the pain and potential errors of manual zoning. Stay on top of all-flash array performance objectives by proactively monitoring for issues that could affect IO performance.

Learn from theater presentations and demonstrations on the following topics:

Enhanced business continuity

Business continuity is a major requirement for most enterprises, regardless of size. FlashStack will provide HA by leveraging Cisco and Pure technologies.  New Cisco validated designs are underway that will describe best practices for  active- active disaster recovery across multiple data centers using Pure Storage Purity™ Active cluster solutions for FlashStack

Multi-cloud extendibility with Cisco CloudCenter

With Cisco CloudCenter, FlashStack operators can securely deploy and manage workloads on private and public clouds across multiple data centers and multiple cloud providers. Data center managers can manage FlashStack infrastructure resources and securely deploy application components to more than 19 cloud providers, all from a single screen.

Secure workload and application agility with Cisco ACI

Cisco ACI delivers a resilient fabric to satisfy today’s dynamic applications supported on FlashStack. Now FlashStack customers can leverage ACI value that includes accelerated workload deployment cycles and seamless networking infrastructure for running both modern and traditional applications distributed across multiple public and private clouds and on premise data centers.
