Intel and Cisco: Optimized Performance That Scales
Network and data infrastructure are breaking free from their traditional silos to unify your business. From the data center to the network — and out to the edge — Intel provides the foundation for end-to-end optimization, powering Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) servers, Cisco* HyperFlex hyperconverged infrastructure, and breakthrough IoT solutions.
Cisco* HyperFlex: Hyperconvergence Meets High Performance
Cisco* HyperFlex systems are built on Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors using Intel® Optane™ Solid State Drives to support a wide range of performance-intensive, mission-critical applications in a hyperconvered infrastructure (HCI). Cisco* HyperFlex can power databases, including Microsoft SQL*, Oracle, or SAP HANA* as well as virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and electronic medical records.
Cisco UCS Fuels Fast Deployment
The Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) combines Intel® Xeon® processor-based servers with networking and storage access into a single system.
Many Fortune 500 companies worldwide rely on Cisco UCS for amazing performance, combined with trusted capabilities for edge computing, virtualization, cloud computing, analytics, and more.
Electronic Medical Records
Electronic Medical Records
Deploying electronic medical record (EMR) systems like Epic can be challenging, especially for healthcare organizations facing budget constraints.
Cisco UCS helps maximize productivity for healthcare workers and enables a seamless patient care experience, all while allowing healthcare systems to scale seamlessly and deliver new Epic applications fast.
Configuring and setting up cloud platforms like OpenStack can be time consuming, requiring skills that are difficult to source in-house. To simplify this process, Cisco worked with Intel and Red Hat to create an integrated Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solution that provides a reliable, secure OpenStack cloud environment.
Optimizing performance for both bare metal UCS and hyperconverged solutions depends on hardware and software optimized to perform together. For Cisco* HyperFlex, Cisco incorporated unique features of Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, including Intel® Volume Management Device (Intel® VMD), to enhance system reliability, availability, and serviceability.
Mission-critical virtualized workloads require consistently low latency and maximum throughput. Cisco has optimized Cisco* HyperFlex with Intel® Optane™ Solid State Drives, which minimize storage bottlenecks and help lower operating costs.
Intel® Optane™ persistent memory offers affordable large capacity with data persistence. With Cisco’s UCS Manager, configure Intel® Optane™ persistent memory to make effective use of multiple memory types.
Manual stocking and inventory replenishment have always been time-consuming, error-prone processes — until now. Using Cisco* HyperFlex Edge and the Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit, Vispera created a solution capable of digitizing store inventory with better recognition accuracy.
To create the first all-digital hotel experience, The Sinclair used experience analytics powered by Cisco and Intel® technologies to drive smarter, more-efficient building operations. Result: improved guest experience, from smart heating and cooling to order-anywhere dining services.
Cisco® Digital Network Architecture (Cisco DNA) for Healthcare, featuring Intel® Xeon® processors, connects everything from medical devices to clinicians to patients. This streamlines collaboration and operations, all while helping keep patient data and medical devices in compliance.
From predictive maintenance to network access control, Cisco Connected Factory provides a breadth of plant infrastructure capabilities that leverage Intel® technologies to make a converged plant-to-business network possible.
