We normally use a UCS, a uniform communication service, I'm still learning how HyperFlex works. We are evaluating it for use in the intermediate to deep future.

Our primary use case of Cisco HyperFlex HX is for data centers. It performs well. The solution helps us simplify operations through minimal maintenance and ease of patching. We did the upgrade as part of the lifecycle when the previous equipment became end-of-life. It was time for the investment. At the same time, we were building out new data centers.

My job is to change the technical language to business language. We need to increase efficiency and effectiveness, decrease the cost and decrease administrative issues. We are increasing the population inside the company, increasing the staff. People in the management of the company are trying to decrease the cost expenses and increase efficiency. In this case, centralization brings a lot of advantages. We have one person who works on everything and gathers everything together.

Our primary use case for the Cisco HyperFlex HX-Series is the hosting of VMs. We were just using standard ESX clusters on UCS flights. Instead, they chose HyperFlex to see if it could replace that solution. This is just your standard ESX on blade server type of deployment.

The primary use case is to deploy all our production and documents. We have deployed Hyper-V on top of HyperFlex and the majority of our operation is on Hyper-V. Major workloads are our e-commerce website and applications that are hosted on it. We have deployed database servers and document management systems and a couple of app and web servers.
