Leader: Chuck Robbins, Chairman, CEO

Flagship HCI Offering: HyperFlex

The San Jose, Calif.-based networking giant’s 2016 breakthrough HyperFlex offering combines Cisco’s software HX Data Platform with its UCS server portfolio along with integrated fabric networking. HyperFlex is sold as a fully integrated appliance that supports VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V hypervisors. The offering is available as a bundle with Cisco’s cloud management platform, CloudCenter. Earlier this year, Cisco rolled out several updates to HyperFlex including AppDynamics for monitoring across multiple clouds. Cisco Chairman and CEO Chuck Robbins spoke to CRN this month about the company’s vision around hyper-convergence, intent-based networking and the Internet of Things.

Key differentiators for midsize businesses: Cisco’s large size offers one-stop shopping and support across various IT domains for the midmarket. Customers can leverage HyperFlex as the building block to Cisco’s Data Center Anywhere portfolio for seamless integration of multi-cloud orchestration and software-defined WAN, to name a few. Cisco also has a rich channel partner ecosystem as well as a slew of validated offerings with companies including Cohesity, Commvault and Veeam to address secondary storage, disaster recovery and data protection.
