NBN selects Cisco to implement its data centre infrastructure

Combines virtualisation, networking, computing, storage, security and management technologies

By CBR Staff Writer

NBN, the company set up by the Federal Government to design, build and operate Australia’s wholesale-only, high-speed broadband network, has selected Cisco to lead the implementation of its data centre infrastructure.

The new offering will be deployed by Cisco and will be built upon Vblock technology from the Virtual Computing Environment (VCE) coalition, a collaboration of Cisco, EMC and VMware, for its next generation data centre.

The company said that the Vblock technology supports its requirements for a data centre with the flexibility to scale to meet growth requirements and the business agility to roll out new services.

In addition, the capability of the Cisco Unified Computing System to unite compute, network and virtualisation resources into a single cohesive system will enable NBN to substantially improve the energy efficiency of its data centre.

Cicso said that the Vblock infrastructure package is an integrated information technology offering that combines virtualisation, networking, computing, storage, security and management technologies with the know-how of Cisco, EMC and VMware.
