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.
