Cisco has been — and continues to — actively deploy its technology to support its own business initiatives, as well as develop best practices and target results for its customers. Called “Cisco on Cisco”, it has encompassed a wide range of technologies.
This blog is a cross-link to a posting from a Cisco IT team on their own company-wide deployment of Cisco WAAS . WAAS, or Wide Area Application Services, is a core technology in Cisco Data Center and Borderless Networks architectures.
You can see Cisco IT’s own descriptions of its 200+ site deployment, and some of the goals and projected results (e.g. $850K 3 yr. savings). Stay tuned for a more detailed case study in the weeks to come.
