Ativas Data Center Boosts Virtualization With Cisco Nexus 5000 Solution

September 28, 2009 by  

Web Hosting ServicesSÃO PAULO, Brazil – Cisco announced that Ativas Data Center, an Asamar Group company, has invested in a Cisco NexusTM 5000 Series switch-based solution to underpin its next-generation data center architecture. Ativas will deploy one of the first data centers in Brazil and in Latin America to adopt one of the most advanced technologies in terms of data center virtualization and connectivity. The facility is planned to start operations in early 2010, in the Minas Gerais Brazilian state.

The Cisco® solution for Ativas is based on the innovative VSS technology (Virtual Switching System), which is present at the network core layer and at the network distribution layer. This technology allows centralized infrastructure to operate as a single virtual switch with high levels of redundancy, so processing of the entire data flow is equally shared among them.

Key Facts / Highlights:
* The innovative architecture of the Cisco Nexus 5000 Series Switches simplifies data center transformation by helping to enable a standards-based, high-performance unified fabric. Next-generation data centers increasingly have dense, multicore, virtual-machine-intensive servers.
* As a network foundation of the Cisco Data Center 3.0 architecture and the latest addition to the family of data-center-class switches, the Cisco Nexus 5000 Series can meet these business, service, application and operational requirements.
* The Cisco solution was chosen by Ativas Data Center due to its high added value and its ability to address current market requirements. Virtualization maximizes physical resources, allowing providers to offer higher-quality solutions and increased cost-benefit rates for end customers.
* Ativas’ processing capacity will be doubled by the Cisco solution, allowing it to offer its clients higher availability and optimized network-contingency features, with easy management features.
