Savvis to integrate Cisco Unified Computing System for Next-Gen Private Clouds Service

Savvis will develop a new enterprise-class Virtual Private Data Center (VPDC) featuring multi-tiered security and quality of service based on the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS).


Savvis Symphony, previously dubbed Project Spirit, is essentially a next-generation private clouds platform. Savvis is using the Cisco Unified Service Delivery solution for service delivery which combines the Cisco UCS architecture with the Cisco Nexus solutions, ACE and MPLS next-generation network.


Cisco UCS unites computational, network, storage access, and virtualization into a scalable, modular architecture that is managed as a single system.


The Cisco Unified Service Delivery solution optimally utilizes pools of resources within any given data center and applies them to any service offering as well as interconnects data center islands to further combine resources, which can significantly reduce capital and operational costs.


The companies are also working together to deliver managed IT infrastructure solutions and enterprise private clouds. The companies have collaborated on the development of a reference architecture that will help enable enterprise customers to take advantage of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) benefits available in Savvis Symphony. This architecture was tested and validated end to end in Cisco's labs, which should enable Savvis to quickly bring these services to market.


"Savvis is one of the first service providers to deliver private cloud and Cisco Unified Computing System benefits to the enterprise," said Rob Lloyd, executive vice president of worldwide operations, Cisco. "The Cisco Unified Computing System is a key element in the Cisco service provider portfolio, which is evolving the data center to a more consolidated, virtualized and automated environment that lays the foundation for cloud computing. We are working closely to support Savvis and Savvis Symphony to provide our mutual customers with cloud IT infrastructure services based on Cisco's Unified Service Delivery architecture."http://www.savvis.com
