Data Center and Cloud

Private cloud is surrounded by its own mythos--some folks believe it doesn’t exist and some folks believe its something that will only be enjoyed by future generations.  So, Cisco IT is living proof that private cloud is something that is very real.  This week, tomorrow in fact, John Manville SVP for Cisco IT, will be presenting a session at Gartner Data Center on Cisco’s private cloud environment, Cisco IT Elastic Infrastructure Services or CITEIS.  John will explain how Cisco has woven together all the elements (compute, network, storage, automation, orchestration, provisioning, etc) into a cohesive offering that serves our production workloads.  John will also share the TCO savings captured to date and how he sees CITIES evolving over the next few years.

If you are not at Gartner DC, stay tuned for a coming interview with John Manville, and meanwhile you  may want also to take advantage of our coming webcast o see how industry peers are doing to solve the very challenges Cloud adopters face.
