    VersaStack, an IBM and Cisco integrated infrastructure solution, combines computing, networking, and storage into a single integrated system. It combines the Cisco Unified Computing System™ (Cisco UCS®) Integrated Infrastructure with IBM Spectrum Virtualize™, which includes IBM FlashSystem® V9000 and IBM Storwize® storage offerings, for quick deployment and rapid time to value for the implementation of modern infrastructures.

    With comprehensive reference architectures that include Cisco Validated Designs (CVDs), IBM Redbooks® publications, sizing guidelines, and single-call support, the solution sets a benchmark to accelerate data center infrastructure deployment and to help manage information and resources efficiently amid business change.

    This IBM Redbooks Solution Guide provides an overview of the VersaStack solution that uses IBM FlashSystem V9000 as an all-flash storage layer. This VersaStack solution delivers extraordinary levels of storage virtualization performance and efficiency in a networking infrastructure, and compute capabilities that are based on the Cisco UCS.

    This guide explains how the IBM FlashSystem V9000 all-flash storage arrays add performance by using IBM MicroLatency®, macro efficiency, superior reliability, and software-defined storage enterprise features to the cloud computing-ready VersaStack solution. This guide is intended for individuals who want to learn more about the VersaStack integrated solution.
