HCN for SHARED STORAGE
The network that knows what your data needs
PLEXXI HCN UNDERSTANDS THAT ALL TRAFFIC IS NOT CREATED EQUALLY
Dynamically allocate bandwidth while isolating storage and non-storage traffic. No problem - all agility.
Through storage, data, and application awareness, Plexxi HCN adjusts in real time to the needs of specific traffic types, enabling the creation and enforcement of application workload-level SLAs over a single, converged network fabric.
STORAGE MOVES TO THE IP NETWORK
Scale-out converged infrastructure and storage deployments are taking over the world
The storage traffic is placing significant stress and strain on legacy network architectures. These networks are stagnant and brittle. A programmable network fabric is needed. Plexxi HCN answers the call.
PLEXXI HYPERCONVERGED NETWORKING BENEFITS
Deploy new storage capacity rapidly with a zero-touch configuration model
Enable the network to keep pace with scale-out converged infrastructure and storage
Isolate storage traffic on IP networks to maintain compliance and data integrity
Workflow alignment with hypervisors dramatically reduces operational cost
Converge once-separate IP storage networks for user, rebuild, and meta data traffic into one
Improve storage performance with low latency, elastic and isolated fabric capacity
The very nature of storage traffic is distinctly different from traditional client/ server network traffic. Legacy network architectures were built for north/south or client-to-server traffic. As compute began to scale-out (multi-core), applications and storage did too and the bottleneck shifted to the network.
Plexxi HCN delivers the network innovation your data center needs to save money, do more and mitigate risk.
