SPRINGPATH ACHIEVES CISCO COMPATIBILITY CERTIFICATION WITH THE CISCO SOLUTION PARTNER PROGRAM

Newly Certified Hyperconvergence Software Delivers Risk-Free Data Storage and Compute Infrastructure that Easily and Flexibly Adapts to Rapidly Changing Needs of DevOps


Sunnyvale, Calif. – June 11, 2015 – Springpath, a pioneer in software based hyperconverged infrastructure, announced that its Springpath Data Platform has successfully achieved Cisco compatibility certification with the Cisco UCS B-series Blade Servers and C-Series Rack Servers. The Internet of Everything (IoE) continues to bring together people, processes, data and things to enhance the relevancy of network connections. As a member of the Cisco® Solution Partner Program, Springpath is able to quickly create and deploy solutions to enhance the capabilities, performance and management of the network to capture value in the IoE.

Springpath’s hardware-agnostic software and transferable subscription model uniquely position the Springpath Data Platform to easily integrate with Cisco’s UCS server platform. The Springpath Data Platform may be purchased at low risk for an annual subscription, giving enterprises the ability to scale out their compute, caching and storage capacity in response to changing business requirements. Customers can repurpose their existing Cisco UCS infrastructure, as well as perform cost-free cluster migrations to newly acquired servers.

“Springpath offers the market’s most flexible hyperconvergence solution, enabling customers to deploy the configuration of Cisco UCS servers that best suits their needs,” said Ravi Parthasarthy, VP of Product Management at Springpath. “Unlike other hyperconvergence offerings, Springpath was built to scale performance and compute independently, so enterprises no longer have to compromise.”

“Springpath’s approach to the hyperconvergence solution set is compelling with a software only mode,” said Zeki Yasar, emerging technology director at ePlus Inc. “With the rapid growth of the market, the hardware agnostic model coupled with a subscription based model should allow customers a compelling choice for this kind of infrastructure.”

The Cisco Solution Partner Program, part of the Cisco Partner Ecosystem, unites Cisco with third-party independent hardware and software vendors to deliver integrated solutions to joint customers. As a Solution Partner, Springpath offers a complementary product offering and has started to collaborate with Cisco to meet the needs of joint customers.
