ShowNotes – Journey to Unified Computing

Your Data Center FutureWelcome to the ShowNotes for TechWiseTV Episode 60 – the Journey to Unified Communications. This show is about the reality of moving to Unified Computing.  Competitors will tell you that this is a big decision, akin to selling your soul to Cisco such that you will forever give up your ability to choose the right technologies for your data center in the future.  What?   Hogwash. 

It is amazing how complete and compelling the Cisco Data Center vision is these days – we have come so far in such a relatively short period of time, we should perhaps distinguish between ‘vision’ and ‘reality.’  The reality is quite deploy-able today and although the full execution of the vision does represent some dramatic changes with how things have been done in the past you DON’T HAVE TO BUY ALL OF IT to begin reaping dramatic benefit.   You can in fact nibble at this thing, learn a little at a time and STILL add value as you do it. 

Yes we are offering a new approach.  You can navigate this journey incrementally however and our focus today is on doing this with Unified Computing.

Our goal for this show is to not only show you exactly how this is done…but we have taken it a step further and asked some non-Cisco companies to help us tell this story. 

Who are they and why is this important?

Secure Data Center Takes Another Step Forward

Cisco announced the ‘Secure Multi-Tenancy Design Architecture’ as a collaboration and documented best practice with NetApp and VMware.   This is obviously very important to the shared ‘cloud’ environments that we and many others are promoting.  Security remains a work in progress …but as you can see…this is the work in progress…

Network World did a good write up on it so be sure and check it out for more detail. Much of this story from the Cisco perspective is all about our Unified Computing platform…and we have you covered on that front!

There are quite a few misconceptions…’myths’ if you will about what many think is an all-or-nothing approach.  We dug into this however.
