(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Stratoscale, the software platform for hyper-converged infrastructure, today announced it has joined the Cisco® Solution Partner Program as a preferred solution partner. Stratoscale today also announced it has successfully achieved Cisco compatibility certification with Cisco UCSM 2.2.1. The Internet of Everything (IoE) continues to bring together people, processes, data and things to enhance the relevancy of network connections. As a member of the Cisco Solution Partner Program, Stratoscale is able to quickly create and deploy solutions to enhance the capabilities, performance and management of the network to capture value in the IoE.
Stratoscale’s hyper-converged infrastructure solution helps organizations of all sizes deploy and operate private or public cloud infrastructure faster and more cost effectively than ever before. By intelligently pooling together Cisco UCS C-Series servers, Stratoscale eliminates the need for expensive external storage and traditional virtualization software, while simultaneously improving datacenter efficiency and reducing management complexity.
As a rack-scale data center operating system, Stratoscale provides all the necessary software components – including software-defined storage and networking, compute (hypervisor), and management services – required for building and running on-premise cloud infrastructures. Because of this integrated approach, Stratoscale’s platform makes it trivially easy install (in minutes, compared to weeks or months), but also helps scale seamlessly to entire data centers as capacity needs grow.
“Stratoscale’s participation in the Cisco Solution Partner Program is an important milestone for us as a company with a partner-driven go to market strategy,” said Patrick Guay, VP Global Sales, Stratoscale. “The match between Cisco’s datacenter strategies and Stratoscale’s all-software, hyper-converged solution creates tremendous opportunities for our joint customers.”
The Cisco Solution Partner Program, part of the Cisco Partner Ecosystem, unites Cisco with third-party independent hardware and software vendors to deliver integrated solutions to joint customers. As a Preferred Solution Partner, Stratoscale has achieved Cisco compatibility certification on at least one solution, and can provide its customers with 24-hour, 7-days-a-week customer support.

The combination of Cisco UCS infrastructure and Stratoscale’s software platform ushers in a new era of true hyper-convergence that is forever changing the way enterprises and service providers build private and multi-tenant public clouds.
Based in Herzeliya, Israel, Stratoscale is redefining the data center, developing a hardware-agnostic, software platform converging compute, storage and networking across the rack or data center. The self-optimizing platform automatically distributes all physical and virtual assets and workloads in real time, delivering “rack-scale economics” to data centers of all sizes with unparalleled efficiency and operational simplicity. Stratoscale is backed by leading investors including: Battery Ventures, Bessemer Venture Partners, Cisco, Intel and SanDisk. For more information, visit http://www.stratoscale.com/
