New York TImes, Data Centers, and Cisco

- September 24, 2008 - 0 Comments

I was forwarded this article in the NY Times today… It is a rather interesting perspective on Cisco’s growth in Unified Communications and Collaboration software/infrastrucutre. What I like though is how the NY Times takes for granted that Cisco is already in the data center. I laugh a little bit because I thought my job here was to help get us into and make us more relevant in the data center! If I believed the title I would have to assume victory and move onto some other role.However, I don’t see it that way.Today we are in the network infrastructure. We have a good hold, but not where I’d like to see it in the application delivery space – where the network intersects the business and productivity applications. Storage market is shifting and changing a lot, we have room to grow there. And with key announcements like our VN-Link technologies the network is going where it ahs never gone before. We still ahve a long road to hoe. :) But I appreciate the sentiments! Especially the Madonna comparison… not sure how I’d look in Gaultier, not sure I will ever try it either…dg
