  • Key Point: NetApp and Cisco have introduced critical capabilities to make this data center vision a realityTransitionSo how do these technologies deliver the advanced data center functionality….
  • Key Points: The technologies from Cisco and NetApp transform the physical infrastructure into dynamic pools of data center resources creating a shared virtualized infratructure that is flexible and efficient but still retains control and security of a dedicated environmentBuild 1 – Cisco and NetApp technology enables physical devices to be virtualized and abstracted as dynamic resources pool. These resource pools span multiple physical devices to 1000’s of servers and Petabytes of storage. Workloads can by dynamically and non-disruptively moved in the environment. The abstracted environment supports both bare metal and hyper-visor based deployments. Including multiple varieties of hypervisors. Build 2 – Resources are provisioned logically based on service catalogs. The application environments are isolated in this share virtual environment both to ensure data security and service level control while still enabling resources to be dynamically shared across those environments. Something we call Secure-multitenancyTransitionThis environment is ideal for a cloud infrastructure but not all companies are ready to move all of their environment to a cloud….
