Product Description

 In Cisco HyperFlex Systems, the data platform spans three or more Cisco HyperFlex HX-Series nodes to create a highly available cluster. Each node includes a Cisco HyperFlex HX Data Platform controller that implements the distributed file system using internal flash-based SSD drives and high-capacity HDDs to store data. The controllers communicate with each other over 10 Gigabit Ethernet to present a single pool of storage that spans the nodes in the cluster (Figure 2). Nodes access data through a data layer using file, block, object, and API plug-ins. As nodes are added, the cluster scales linearly to deliver computing, storage capacity, and I/O performance. An HX deployment consists of HX nodes on UCS connected to each other and the upstream switch via a pair of Fabric Interconnects (FIs).

In the VMware vSphere environment, the controller occupies a virtual machine with a dedicated number of processor cores and amount of memory, allowing it to deliver consistent performance and not affect the performance of the other virtual machines on the cluster.
