Cisco UCS and Nexus 7000: The cornerstone of a new Cisco IT data center designed for disaster recovery

September 12, 2011
at 4:00 am PST

On April 15th, Cisco IT announced the grand opening of  a brand new data Center in Allen, Texas- This opening was part of a larger plan based on new facilities as well as transformation of existing facilities

On September 13, at 11:30 am PST (2:30 p.m. Eastern Time) you are invited to join Cisco CIO Rebecca Jacoby, VP IT Network and Data Center Services John Manville, and WW VP Sales Data Center and Virtualization Stephanie Carullo for a special TV broadcast on the GRAND OPENING of the NEW CORPORATE DATA CENTER on Cisco’s RTP campus in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina

Cisco IT transformed an existing data center in a state-of-the-art 2.88 MW, Tier 2 data center. Using UCS and its unique Service Profiles, Nexus switches, and Cisco-developed practices and policies, the new data center supports application development on a daily basis, but also acts as a disaster recovery site based on “virtual datacenters” created within the physical datacenter. The new data center can act as a DR site for multiple production data centers.

You already had the opportunity to listen to Rebecca, John and Stephanie , and you probably know their level of passion and  also their unique vision of the data center

This broadcast is an opportunity to understand

  • How the new data center fits into Cisco’s overall global data center and cloud strategy
  • Cisco’s use of its own data center technology, including the Cisco Unified Computing System and Cisco Nexus switches.
  • How Cisco IT successfully transformed this data center and what are  the immediate benefits of this new architecture.
