Why Invest In Unified Computing Now? Some Thoughts from Intel

- April 1, 2009 - 0 Comments

One of the aspects of the Cisco Unified Computing launch that I enjoyed was the opportunity to meet and work with a whole new group of really smart people. Out of that, I had the opportunity to record some podcasts related to the Cisco and Intel’s collaboration during the development of the UCS. Here is the first podcast, with more to follow.


I recently had the chance to chat with Ed Groden, Product Marketing Manager for the Intel Xeon 5500. The topic of discussion was simple: in this economy, why would you want to invest in a new platform? Ed’s snappy comeback was how about 9:1 consolidation over older single core systems and a payback as short as 8 months. Listen to the full conversation to get more details about how we get there. Also, be sure to check out The Server Room community on Intel’s website.
