Qwest has implemented the Cisco Unified Service Delivery (USD) solution across its CyberCenters. The Qwest CyberCenters provide a highly-secure, reliable, scalable foundation for delivering state-of-the-art hosting for mission-critical enterprise application services.
The Cisco USD solution helps Qwest optimize its CyberCenter network, application, compute and storage resources, while reducing capital, operating, real estate and energy costs. This creates new economies of scale for Qwest and attractive pay-per-use business models for its enterprise customers. The Cisco USD is helping Qwest change the game by bringing new levels of service agility to the cloud.
In a separate blog, Simon Aspinall, senior director of service provider marketing at Cisco, provides more detail about Qwest’s implementation of Cisco USD. See Cloud Computing Brings Sunny Skies for Qwest and Cisco.
