Data Center and Cloud

RISC/UNIX migration is creating big opportunities for Cisco in the Data Center.  Last week at Oracle OpenWorld 2012 we highlighted world-record Oracle application and database performance with the Cisco Unified Computing System™ (Cisco UCS®). In my conversations with customers many indicated they were very anxious to migrate their Oracle database sooner rather than later. This feedback is consistent with what many analysts are predicting will be a massive migration off of proprietary RISC/UNIX platforms over the next few years.

Watch the video below for a short discussion on the successes, benefits, and services methodology of Cisco’s RISC/UNIX migration program. I also briefly cover how Cisco UCS is a unique system that can simplify and accelerate deployment of enterprise-class applications running in bare-metal, virtualized, and cloud-computing environments, enabling IT departments to deliver the flexibility and agility required to support the modernization of applications and the dynamic demands of the business.

RISC/UNIX Migration to Cisco UCS: Application Modernization

I also urge you to check out our RISC/UNIX migration program page as we continue to enhance it with new performance briefs, solution briefs, and migration briefs.

In an effort to keep conversations fresh, Cisco Blogs closes comments after 90 days. Please visit the Cisco Blogs hub page for the latest content.
