i-Virtualize, a provider of cloud and on-premises computing solutions across North America, has selected the VersaStack Solution by Cisco and IBM.
The main behind the selection of VersaStack solution is to assist enterprise customers of i-Virtualize to accelerate the installation of a system of infrastructure for Big Data and analytics, cloud and mobile computing, said IBM in a statement.
VersaStack pairs Cisco Unified Computing System Integrated Infrastructure (UCS) with IBM Storwize V7000 storage technology.
VersaStack contains server hardware, a disk storage system, networking equipment, and systems management software in a single platform. VersaStack provides efficient use of computing, networking, and storage resources with up to five times more data storage with IBM Real-time Compression.
The VersaStack solution enables i-Virtualize to host and manage resources for Hayward Gordon, a distributor of process equipment and a manufacturer of industrial pumps, mixers, and engineered systems.
FreeBalance, a provider of public financial management solutions, can use the i-Virtualize public cloud running on VersaStack to deliver software as a service for faster and simplified IT.
“Today we are bringing VersaStack to our customers either in the cloud or on-premises where our hardware runs their software,” saidJohn Buskermolen, co-founder, i-Virtualize. “We intend to manage their software applications, too, delivering a totally integrated IT environment in the cloud.”
Cisco UCS Integrated Infrastructure, which includes Cisco UCS, Application Centric Infrastructure – Cisco Nexus, Cisco MDS 9000 Family switches, and Cisco UCS Director management software – can accelerate the deployment of applications and can improve the ability to adapt to business change.
The IBM Storwize V7000 includes technology that provides virtual environments with built-in functions such as Data Virtualization, Real-time Compression, and Easy Tier, which automatically migrates data between tiers based on real-time usage patterns, for improved performance and efficiency.
