Cisco Systems, Inc. is an American MNC headquartered in San Jose, California. It develops, manufactures, and sells networking hardware, telecommunications equipment, and other high-technology services and products.
With unified fabric-based data centers, like Cisco’s UCS system, the key challenge was unifying the management of computing, network, storage, and virtualization into one platform. For Cisco, answering specific questions was an essential yet challenging task. These questions were: How can the management of all resource tiers in a data center be converged such that silos are eliminated and operational simplicity and elasticity is achieved? Will it be possible to integrate non-IT data center resources like heating, cooling, and power distribution to identify the optimum use of energy?
Cisco wanted a CloudTech unified management and orchestration solution for its cloud infrastructure. The company has accelerated the adoption of its new UCS data center management and orchestration CloudTech products among Fortune 50 early-adopter customers.
