They Were Wrong About UCS…What Else Are They Wrong About?

As we near the 2nd year anniversary – July 20, 2009 – when we first shipped the Cisco Unified Computing System, we’re having some fun looking at past milestones, sharing success stories, and putting to rest competitive FUD.

Many industry pundits thought Cisco was taking a big leap off a steep cliff when we introduced UCS.  Proving the naysayers wrong is always satisfying, so we offer this fun video entitled: “They said it couldn’t be done”– bad predictions throughout history. We hope you’ll enjoy this and see how Cisco’s Unified Computing System fits into that mix.

  1. A nice marketing message, but I wouldn't compare UCS to the light bulb or Einstein... Still - congrats!
  2. Great video! And YES it is true. It's hard to predict what will happen in the future! Wish you all the best.
  3. Love it. Seeing the Michael Dell quote about Apple never gets old.
