Known for its compliant and secure cloud hosting services, Cirrity provides customers with all the benefits of cloud computing without the time, risk, and expense of deploying and maintaining an in-house solution. Cirrity offers state-of-the-art infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) solutions.
To support a growing customer base, Cirrity requires an IT infrastructure that is always available and can scale simply and seamlessly. It also needs a centralized, easily managed, and automated IT infrastructure, so that even during rapid growth as much time as possible can be devoted to activities that will help build the business. The ability to optimize server and storage efficiencies is also key to providing a competitively priced, quality product.
Cirrity’s FlexPod solution resides in the company’s primary data center and includes multiple NetApp FAS3240 and FAS3220 storage systems as well as Cisco Unified Computing System (Cisco UCS) B230 M2 blade servers, enterprise-class Cisco Nexus 5548 Series Switches, and Cisco UCS 6248UP 48-port fabric interconnects.
Both the FAS3240 and FAS3220 systems are configured with clustered Data ONTAP 8.1.1 software. Clustered Data ONTAP brings centralized management; nondisruptive operations; and scale-up, scale-out capabilities to Cirrity’s 100% VMware virtualized environment.
