This year Cisco has a growing presence at Oracle Open World with a booth in the exhibition area comparable in size to the booths of the major server vendors.
Don’t make any mistake . In case you still don’t know, Cisco is in the server market, and has big plans with the unified computing systems (UCS) and the Cisco Data center Business Advantage architectural framework
As a vendor of servers we talked a lot about performances and benchmarks – And why not ? After all thanks to the UCS we have been breaking one after one all the major benchmark records, proving many times, that our vision and design of server is the right one.
But I am more interested in what the customers who discovered the unified computing system have to say – So I invited yesterday Brady Reiter, NaviSite General Manager, Enterprise Architecture and Application for a little and casual conversation in front of the camera with Alex Krasne one of our blogger.
The NaviSite team is deploying a cloud based platform , that they use to deliver Oracle Application Management – So we asked Brady what was the business context and the evaluation process (Cisco vs HP, IBM, Sun) , and what are the results he got so far – Here is what Brady has to say
I met also Doug Beasley, one of our consulting engineer, who shared with me some of the amazing capabilities that the Unified Computing System offers to the IT organizations in the context of Oracle applications deployment and management
If you didn’t have a chance to be at Oracle Open World this year or to visit our booth, here is another opportunity.Tomorrow and in the following days I will come with additional video interviews with speakers and demo owners .
If you are at the show, I hope you will enjoy tonight the customer appreciation in Treasure Island
