I am happy to share that Cisco is a key sponsor for the Microsoft Tech Ed North America 2011 event in Atlanta next week. At TechEd, we will be showcasing our data center business advantage solutions and showing how you can maximize your investments in leading Microsoft applications such as Exchange, SharePoint, and SQL Server.
With Cisco UCS, we are not just making servers, we are making server history.
It is well known that Cisco UCS adoption has been fantastic with over 5400 customers, with a large number of customers efficiently and fearlessly running their mission critical Microsoft applications on UCS. These customer deployments are backed by series of CVDs (Cisco Validated Designs) that serve as key enablers to successful deployments.
Cisco is a strategic partner to Microsoft. We will be making some key announcements around our new solutions with Microsoft and other open ecosystem partners. These new solutions will further accelerate the adoption of private cloud, SQL Server 2008 R2 based data warehouse and database applications. I cannot provide any more details without getting into trouble :). Please watch out this space early next week for further details around these announcements.
What are we showing?
Don’t forget to stop by the Cisco booth in the exhibitor area to have detailed discussions around why we are winning with UCS!
We have several demos around why Cisco UCS is compelling for Microsoft Apps, Cisco CVDs for Microsoft Apps and VDI, and some of the new solutions we are announcing next week. Our experts will be available to answer any questions and walk through different demos. Also, we have some great goodies to hand out!
Best of TechEd Award Finalist!!!
I am also happy to share that the Cisco UCS B250-M2 Blade is a finalist in the Hardware and Storage Category for Best of TechEd Awards. Winners will be announced at the event on Wednesday evening, 5/18, at the awards ceremony. Wish us good luck!
I’ll see you at TechEd next week. Please stop by the Cisco booth #1614 and we’ll be glad to talk about our joint solutions with Microsoft that can more efficiently solve your business challenges.
