Smaller Footprint

Use less power, cooling and data-centre space to run more apps at higher speed.

Performance Certified

Benefit from certified configurations that are extensively tested and documented.

Advanced Compression

On-the-fly compression and de-duplication gives storage space savings up to 80%.

Leveraging the power of Cisco’s UCS blade servers and Nexus switches, with a choice of industry-leading storage vendors, converged-infrastructure from PlanNet21 offers cost-savings and performance benefits you can’t ignore:

  • Highly energy-efficient components, coupled with extreme density (both for storage and compute) helps you do far more with less.
  • Integrated management tools allow you easily manage your infrastructure as one cohesive unit.
  • A huge leap forward in storage performance, with all-flash or hybrid flash/HDD, matched with performance-oriented storage OSes.
  • Granular scaling options with no down-time for adding extra hardware.
  • Multi-faceted high-availability provided by both redundant hardware and software-managed redundant storage.
  • Peace of mind that your configuration is optimised, thanks to extensive vendor testing and certification by industry leaders.

Cisco have partnered with Pure Storage to produce FlashStack, a compelling converged architecture, based around Cisco’s class-leading UCS compute platform and Nexus switches, coupled with Pure Storage FlashArray.

  • Scales from a 9U unit, up to 160 servers.
  • Sub-millisecond latency from FlashArray SSDs, running the purpose-built Purity operating environment.
  • Perfect for Citrix desktops. Up to 7,500 supported on one rack!
  • Highly-available and reliable storage. 99.9999% uptime based on actual Pure Storage customer metrics.
  • FlashReduce technology applies dynamic de-duplication and compression, saving up to 80% on storage space.
  • Designed to integrate with the latest application platforms including vCenter, vRealize, OpenStack and Docker.
  • Automation of management available through REST, CLI or PowerShell.

PlanNet21’s product portfolio includes NetApp FlexPod, which comprises NetApp All Flash FAS with Cisco UCS Servers, Fabric Interconnect and Nexus 9000. The result is a converged computing and storage platform that excels in every dimension.

  • Branch offices can be catered for with FlexPod Express, while FlexPod Data Centre is for larger customers.
  • Up to 7M IOPS per cluster.
  • High-density flash storage. Up to 1 petabyte per 4U.
  • Purpose-built storage OS “NetApp Data ONTAP” with flash-optimised WAFL file system.
  • Thin replication (deltas only) allows fast backup & restore.
  • Compatible with a wide variety of app platforms, including vSphere, Hyper-V, RHEL, Oracle RAC, Citrix Xen Desktop, Docker and Cisco ACI.

PlanNet21 offers the best from two tech power-houses, Cisco and IBM, in the form of VersaStack.
