Inside Cisco IT

If sibling rivalry exists among Data Centers, our Richardson, Texas facility must be jealous.  Unveiled in 2007 as Cisco’s next-generation Data Center and subsequently toured by thousands of visitors, the site hasn’t received much attention since its younger brother came online in 2011.The newer Data Center – located about a dozen miles away in Allen, Texas – has enjoyed a ribbon-cutting ceremony involving the governor, was certified LEED-Gold for its green technologies and is now the preferred destination for those exploring Data Center best practices.  The Allen site’s design and operations strategies have also been documented in a dedicated web site, and even showcased in a new book.

As worthy of attention as our Allen site is, the Richardson facility still deserves some spotlight too.  Many of the innovations Cisco uses in its newest Data Centers were originally developed, implemented and validated there.

Here are just a few:
