SimpliVity gains enterprise momentum with Cisco UCS offering

08 Mar 16

SimpliVity has become a leading hyperconvergence vendor for Cisco USC after just three quarters of selling with Cisco globally, with 1000 hyperconverged Cisco UCS systems sold so far.

The hyperconverged infrastructure provider says it now has enterprise customers across the globe in healthcare, banking and finance, utilities, entertainment, retail, government and other sectors, storing more than 350 petabytes of data on the SimpliVity platform with Cisco UCS.

Doron Kempel, SimpliVity chief executive, says large-scale enterprises have chosen SimpliVity in growing numbers and at rapidly increasing installation sizes.

“Deals encompass tens and often hundreds of systems, by replacing legacy IT stacks, across sites, with a radically simpler, more transformational solution that delivers all IT infrastructure and data services below the hypervisor,” Kempel says.

SimpliVity was announced as a Cisco Solutions Partner Program preferred solution partner five quarters ago, and began selling with Cisco globally three quarters ago.

The company combines all the functionality of an entire data center stack below the hypervisor, including compute, storage, network switching, replication and backup, onto industry-standard Cisco UCS x86 hardware.

SimpliVity says among its wins are a European cloud services and SaaS hosting provider which powers its next-generation data center using about 200 SimpliVity systems.

A large development bank in India is using 20 of the systems to improve performance and disaster recovery for all banking apps, VDI and dev/test, while a leading travel commerce platform provider utilises SimpliVity for its data center modernisation, using the offering to consolidate and simplify its IT infrastructure and launch a private cloud on premises.

Kempel says the company also has a rapidly growing pipeline fuelled by growing value added resellers registrations.

“SimpliVity is both humbled and pleased with our market momentum to date with Cisco and our joint VARs,” says Kempel.
