NASHUA, NH – January 10, 2016 — Plexxi, a pioneer of software-defined data center infrastructure, today announced a partnership with CyberNorth, Northern New England’s premier enterprise IT infrastructure provider. The companies are focused on the transition from traditional storage area network (SAN) architectures to modern day hyperconverged infrastructure that is the driving force in data center consolidation initiatives to simplify IT.
Virtualization and the deployment of modern day ‘third platform’ applications require flexible architectures that improve IT agility. The need continues to grow for innovative technology solutions including software-defined infrastructure and hyperconverged architectures that enable new levels of IT service capabilities. CyberNorth and Plexxi will partner to deliver end-to-end hyperconverged solutions for building software-defined data centers featuring Plexxi’s hardware and software offerings, Plexxi Switch, Plexxi Control and Plexxi Connect, as part of CyberNorth’s converged IT solutions portfolio. Plexxi’s hyperconverged networking solutions support diverse hyperconverged infrastructure applications and workloads, while ensuring high performance, reliability and service quality.
“The revolution in converged infrastructure is changing the way customers deploy technology and CyberNorth is pioneering the transition from traditional SAN to Hyper-Converged,” said Jeremy Lombardo, President at CyberNorth. “Legacy IT infrastructure is complex, costly, and not designed for today’s virtualized world. Plexxi delivers the latest innovation in networking by bringing a single-tier converged network solution that provides unprecedented simplicity, agility and savings for emerging data center designs.”
“CyberNorth has a history of taking complex data center architectures and simplifying them for their customers,” said Tim Lieto, Senior Vice President of Sales and Support at Plexxi. “We share a fundamental vision for moving beyond traditional SAN architectures to converged infrastructure that delivers on the promise of simplicity, performance and savings to meet the cloud economics that today’s businesses demand.”
