In an increasingly connected world, most of us now expect to be able to access our workspaces at any time, regardless of our geographic locations or user devices. At any given day, I could be working from my house, in the office, at the Starbucks down the street, or even in another city. Now, once I’m at these locations, what kind of devices can I use to work? Cisco understands that the way people work in the enterprise is changing because so many employees want to use their personal tools at work but how do we enable them to connect from anywhere with any device? That’s where Borderless Networks comes in.
Today, as we celebrate 25 years as a company , we think about how Cisco has watched the industry evolve. In this video from FoxBusiness.com, Rebecca Jacoby, senior vice president and chief information officer of Cisco, discusses lessons learned during the Dot Com Bubble Burst and how the Internet has changed over the years.
The benefits of the “less is more” philosophy seem to be more and more evident lately. A quick look at two of my favorite tech tools, Twitter and the iPhone, demonstrates how keeping things simple and easy to use are essential design principles in today’s markets. If you transpose that philosophy into the data center, it’s easy to understand why the Nexus family of switches is a necessary step forward for our networks. Cisco’s Nexus 7000 (core) and 5000 (edge/top of rack) switches evolves the Cisco IT data center with an emphasis on simplified architecture, virtualization and greater energy efficiency, all of which makes the data center more efficient.
