Cisco’s Unified Computing System to help DataOne’s cloud-based ICT services
Managed technology services provider DataOne has partnered with Cisco to update its infrastructure and further enhance CloudSecure, a portfolio of services including software-as-a-service (SaaS), platform-as-a-service (PaaS), infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and voice services over the cloud.
DataOne offers information and communications technology (ICT) as a subscription-based cloud service, allowing clients to gain from the fundamental benefit of cloud computing, which is increased efficiency by concentrating fully on core competencies and devoting resources back to business critical activities.
The subscription-based ICT services allow companies to realise considerable savings, a major concern especially for SMBs.
Companies can benefit from switching over to cloud-based ICT services as it helps lower their IT staffing costs and their needs are catered to by a 24/7 support service.
DataOne decided to use the Cisco Unified Computing System for their compute virtualisation infrastructure together with the Cisco Nexus Unified Fabric switching platform.
The Cisco Nexus switches provided the modularity needed for the data centre environment, allowing for infrastructure scalability, operational continuity and flexibility.
Cisco Unified Computing System unifies network, compute, storage access, and virtualisation into a single cohesive system. DataOne also incorporated Cisco's Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) to boost its security features.
Cisco Philippines country general manager Stephen Misa said: "The data centre of DataOne is a Cisco Validated Design, meaning the solutions they are using are designed, tested and documented by Cisco specifically for DataOne to facilitate and improve their operations."
