Cisco introduces virtualisation, cloud-based innovations

Enhances resilience and user experience of Cloud-based apps

By CBR Staff Writer

Cisco has introduced a new network service Application Velocity rooted in its Integrated Services Routers, to boost performance, virtualisation and application-aware networking.

The company said that Application Velocity introduces a new set of offerings on the Integrated Services Router Generation 2 platform, which enables an optimal user experience with any application and on any device.

The new tool embeds application-aware technologies into the network that connect the data-center-hosted applications to end-user devices.

The company said that Application Velocity supports application visibility and control, pervasive availability of application acceleration and WAN optimisation with real-time adaptability, and application reliability.

Cisco has also launched professional services to help organisations plan, build and run scalable offerings to accelerate deployment of Application Velocity network services.

In this release the company introduced a number of new Application Velocity technologies that are designed to boost application experience, network survivability and consistent Cisco data center and end-user solutions.

Cisco WAAS Express, a new WAN optimisation offering, supports TCP optimisation and payload compression and eliminates data redundancy.

WAAS on the ISR G2 Services-Ready Engine (SRE) provides router-integrated, application acceleration and WAN optimisation services.

Cisco said that its Unified Computing System Express extends the Unified Computing System architecture from the data centre to the branch to provide end-to-end virtualisation.

It allows customers to run VMware vSphere Hypervisor and Microsoft Windows Server on the ISR G2 SRE module without requiring a separate server.

Cisco VP and GM of services routing technology Praveen Akkiraju said, by taking an architectural approach from the Data Center to the branch and mobile users, the company’s Application Velocity on the Integrated Service Router (ISR) G2 platform delivers a high quality Borderless experience for customers.
