VersaStack is a pre-engineered, tested, and supported system designed to operate as a whole which brings new levels of ease, efficiency, and versatility to the cloud, big data, and enterprise application deployments.

IDG research determined that three out of four CIOs say that it’s difficult to stay on budget and on-time due to the complexity of deploying ‘build your own’ infrastructure. According to Data Centre Cost Portfolio, the average IT department spends approximately 73% of its budget “keeping the lights on.” This doesn’t leave many dollars or resources available for innovation and new projects.

IT leaders are rapidly shifting away from traditionally isolated environments and moving toward a converged infrastructure, in which the full stack of data centre technologies is combined into a pre-engineered, tested, and supported system designed to operate as a whole.

Cisco has joined with IBM to create the world’s first integrated infrastructure based on the IBM Storwize family of virtualized storage technologies and the Cisco Unified Computing System™ (Cisco UCS). When compared to competitive solutions, VersaStack has 59% lower acquisition cost and a 62% lower TCO over five years.

VeraStack has the flexibility to provide a level of scalability that will enable users to begin with an infrastructure that can continue to grow and adapt according to changing organisational requirements.
