In case you missed it, last week Cisco partners, ecosystem, and customers everywhere applauded the latest IDC worldwide server tracker report citing Cisco UCS as the revenue market share leader in North America, eclipsing HP for the top spot in x86 blades.
Cisco VP/GM Paul Perez said it best: “Customers are adopting UCS because our innovation drives positive business outcomes for them.” That’s a sentiment echoed in every case study highlighting the tangible business impacts our customers have experienced when deploying mission-critical workloads on UCS. Nowhere is this more evident, than with desktop virtualization, where organizations are transforming end-user computing to unleash greater employee mobility, productivity, business continuity and agility. Check out this infographic if you want to see a nice snapshot of what real Cisco customers have done with VMware Horizon on UCS.
It should therefore be no surprise when industry luminaries like VMware’s Sanjay Poonen (EVP/GM of VMware End User Computing) highlights the importance of Cisco UCS in helping his team gain market traction in end user computing. This Business Insider interview is an insightful read – especially if you’ve only heard the competitive narrative between Cisco and VMware, and were not aware that our two companies actually have a differentiated, compelling joint offer around desktop virtualization built on VMware Horizon deployed on UCS.
Is your organization in the midst of transforming your desktops into mobile workspaces? Do you want to learn more about how organizations just like yours are turning to the market leader in x86 blades for their VDI deployment? Next week VMware is hosting an online virtual event (think of it as a free virtual tradeshow) – VMware EUC Insights. From the convenience of your office (or home, or coffee shop, etc.) you can listen in on keynotes, breakout sessions, and engage desktop virtualization experts from Cisco and VMware. I encourage you to check out Cisco UCS at VMware EUC Insights on June 17th!
