BOULDER, Colo. and SAN DIEGO, June 08, 2015
SolidFire, ranked the #1 Solid-State Array, today announced the latest release in its Agile Infrastructure (AI) family of pre-validated reference architectures. Built specifically for enterprises looking to deploy OpenStack-based infrastructure, SolidFire’s newest AI design incorporates Cisco’s compute and networking, Red Hat’s Enterprise Linux OpenStack distribution and SolidFire’s all-flash scale-out storage platform. SolidFire’s latest AI for OpenStack enables Cisco-powered enterprises to dramatically simplify and accelerate OpenStack cloud deployments.
SolidFire AI for OpenStack allows customers to stand up a dynamic self-service cloud infrastructure in significantly less time, with less space and for less money than alternative converged infrastructure offerings. Unique capabilities of SolidFire’s new AI for OpenStack on Cisco UCS include:
“We believe the phase of enterprise adoption we are entering into will be driven by industry leaders providing fully tested and certified solutions that enable rapid time to value and high availability, while being fully supported by our partners,” said Mike Werner, Sr. Director, Global Technology Partner Programs, Red Hat. “SolidFire’s Agile Infrastructure showcases its commitment to delivering infrastructure that meets the strict production requirements of the enterprise.”
“With SolidFire AI, enterprise IT and service providers can now confidently deploy a dynamic data center infrastructure that helps them achieve greater agility, automation, predictability and scale,” said SolidFire’s VP of Corporate Development & Strategy Dave Cahill. “By joining forces with Cisco and Red Hat, SolidFire’s AI for OpenStack offers everything customers need to deploy an OpenStack cloud and transform their data centers to accelerate productivity and innovation.”
