Unified Computing System In Production, Redux
Since our initial announcement of the Cisco UCS, there has been a great deal of interest, skepticism, and speculation about this new platform. Though the system won’t start shipping to customers until the end of June, Cisco IT has had it deployed in production for a number of months now in one of our existing data centers, where we have been using to run several production and business critical apps to ensure it got a thorough and realistic workout. Since hands-on details are currently scarce, we thought folks might be interested in a first hand account of the very first deployment of this technology. So, we recently held a live Internet TV broadcast and Q&A session with John Manville, VP of Information Technology, Network and Data Center Services at Cisco, and Chris Hynes, director of IS, Network and Data Center Services at Cisco. If you missed the original broadcast, you can find the archive here.If you have any other questions, post them as comment to this blog post and I’ll see if I can get them answered for you.
