Data Synapse, Cisco Integrate

LAS VEGAS -- DataSynapse Inc., a leader in dynamic application service management software for the next-generation data center, today announced integration of its FabricServer software platform with Cisco’s VFrame data center provisioning and infrastructure orchestration product. As a result of this technology integration, enterprise data center architects can now dynamically scale a complete application service stack as virtualized application and hardware infrastructure objects. As a result, IT organizations can reduce capital and operating costs while delivering significant improvement in time to market and service levels for critical business applications.

FabricServer and VFrame treat the application and infrastructure as service components, respectively, and can dynamically apply or remove these services in unison. Customers benefit from right sized hosted infrastructures and enhanced capacity with real time utilization policies.

Both FabricServer and VFrame are key enablers of modular, always-responsive and energy-efficient next generation data centers. FabricServer automates the provisioning and manages the service levels of complex enterprise applications and associated platforms by dynamically configuring, activating and scaling applications based on business policies and business demand. FabricServer can provision enterprise applications to both physical and virtual server platforms running VMware ESX.

Cisco VFrame abstracts the underlying hardware resources, including, server, storage, and networking resources, as dynamic hosting pools to FabricServer. Through a set of complementary policies and interfaces, FabricServer can make capacity change requests to VFrame, either to release or add more hardware resources to a software pool. VFrame can then re-program the underlying hardware specific to service requirements as defined within each application group.

“Many customers want to deploy virtualized infrastructures all the way from the infrastructure up to the application layers,” said Bill Erdman, Senior Marketing Director within Cisco’s Data Center Technology Organization. “With the integrated VFrame and FabricServer solution, IT architects can quickly design and deploy applications and associated virtualized infrastructure as services through customer-defined policies.”
