No more guess work
SmartStack solutions provide converged infrastructure that can help to accelerate application deployment. There is no guess-work, and you only pay for what you need.
Building flexibility into your cloud
Enterprises need proven, easy-to-deploy, and scalable IT infrastructure for their long-term success. SmartStack, a best-of-breed converged infrastructure platform offered by Nimble Storage and Cisco.
It enables IT to reduce time to deployment, scale investments, simplify operations and protect your data, resulting in greater business agility and competitiveness at a reduced cost.
SmartStack is an integrated converged infrastructure stack that provides compute, storage and network. It supports diverse workloads from VDI, Core Business Applications to Database Management, and is validated by proven reference designs as a result of documented, real workload testing.
Enjoy peace of mind through a flexible deployment model that is jointly supported by Nimble and Cisco, with the added confidence of connecting your SmartStack through the Telstra network.
The SmartStack advantage

Going above and beyond with theses extra inclusions
In every SmartStack you get the following powerful inclusions:
Enjoy faster and simpler deployment. SmartSetup is a tool designed to make initial setup of the Smartstack UCS and Nimble components very simple and to the standards of the Nimble Setup guide.
SmartSetup creates pools, policies, volumes, volume mapping and boot policies.
SmartSnap & SmartReplicate
Improve Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs) & Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs) without additonal cost.
SmartSnap & SmartReplicate are Nimble’s integrated Data Protection tools. Allow for compressed, thin snapshots to be taken more often and kept for longer.
Zero copy clones can be created using the snapshots for fast, space efficient test/dev environments, supports one-to-one, plus many-to-one replication.
Increase the security and compliance of your data. SmartSecure is an encryption-at rest-feature, which allows for the enablement of per volume or per array encryption of data.
SmartSecure can be combined with SmartReplicate to provide secure replication of compressed and encrypted data.
