Making the Data Center Construction and Expansion Process Easier.

Instead of purchasing servers, storage, and switches from different vendors across the industry, major manufacturers have joined forces to create several “Data Center in a Box” products. These solutions are proven by their manufacturers to integrate and operate together flawlessly.

Plus, converged infrastructures are built with scalability in mind. The IT team can scale only the components they need.

Want more compute? Another Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) server can be quickly and easily added to the stack to meet any environment’s needs. Alternatively, Mindsight’s engineering experts also offer hyperconverged infrastructure solutions. These devices combine the entire data stack into one compact piece of hardware.

Converged Infrastructure Solutions

  • Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS)

    Cisco UCS is the Cisco brand server used in each converged infrastructure below. But UCS is not your standard server. It merges the network and server functions into a single piece of intelligent hardware.

  • Hyperconvergence

    A hyperconverged infrastructure takes the principles of a converged infrastructure to the next level. Instead of multiple manufacturers supplying the components for one powerful design, a hyperconverged infrastructure is a single piece of hardware that includes every component in the data center stack.
