At Nowcomm we believe that Cisco are leading the way in this “Hyperconvergence”. They aren’t the first to the market in this area, but then Facebook wasn’t the first to social media and Google wasn’t the first internet search engine. What the latter two both achieved was a service better than any other in the market, and both continued to continually improve and enhance their technology based offerings for their customers.
We think Cisco’s Hyperflex solutions will do the same in the data centre. Cisco already lead the market in all aspects of network infrastructure. They have been doing the same in enterprise class compute too, having now almost ten years of market expertise with their UCS server offerings; a server based technology built from the ground up which was not constrained by the need to fit into an existing product line, instead a product set designed with digital transformation in mind. Now Cisco have combined their network technology and their service technology, and also added best in class storage capabilities, for their Hyperconverged solution set. These run under the Cisco HyperFlex range.
With Nowcomm’s expertise combined with this leading Cisco technology, we believe that Nowcomm have a complete solution service that will help organisations transition to a modernised automated data centre; one that is application centric and benefits from an open architecture rather than a locked down, inflexible environment. Applications can be moved from premises to cloud and back to premises as and when required. This ability to move workloads into the cloud and from the cloud increases IT agility, enabling the IT department to deliver IT services and line of business applications to the organisation much faster. The result is not just the improved operational efficiency of the IT department, but big competitive advantages to the organisation in the ever developing digital world.
