Cisco ramps up datacentre consolidation

Cliff Saran

Cisco has boosted its datacentre product line with Data Center 3.0, a suite of two- and four-core servers, which it claims offers 300% greater application performance.

Cisco Unified Computing System servers now offer four times the standard memory footprint, providing a platform for enterprise workloads, Cisco said.

The company has also expanded its Nexus portfolio with Nexus 2248 and Nexus 2232 fabric extenders, which offer 10Gbit Ethernet to the datacentre.

According to Cisco, the improvements deliver up to four times the compute and bandwidth capacity of first-generation Cisco Unified Computing System servers in the same footprint with the existing chassis.

It claims that unlike the first-generation system, the latest products offer up to 30% greater application throughput with the Cisco Virtualized Interface Card and up to 76% greater database consolidation with Cisco memory extension.
