With the advent of software-defined networking (SDN), data center design is evolving to incorporate completely software-defined data centers (SDDC). We are seeing the rise of hyper-scale, microscale, and other high-density variations of data-centers emerging all at the same time. These technologies are barely defined, yet their growth over the next few years is predicted to be many multiples!
Though each serves a different purpose, a core component of these modern data centers is a building block, sometimes as small as a single rack, that includes the compute, storage, and networking required to operate on its own — a containerized, independent unit. These individual blocks are great because one can be used on its own as the smallest microscale data center or thousands can be used together to create a hyper-scale data center and everything in between. Software plus hardware tailored for redundancy makes this both possible and cost-effective.
- Our cost-effective and can integrate seamlessly into your existing environment — ideal for scale
- Can be deployed rapidly and modified quickly with our easy-to-use web interface, which makes configuration and re-configuration simple and hitless
- Are ideal for expansion as they can be used standalone or with our turnkey Vision One or Vision 7300, as part of a Security Fabric
- Are great for continuous modification because they can be deployed inline or out-of-band, and even both simultaneously. Plus, they are multi-speed capable, to support evolving speeds
