Michael Capellas Shares VCE Strategy, Impact to Cisco Partners

- March 21, 2011 - 0 Comments

“Cloud is going to be the dominant technology going forward,” as Michael Capellas told us at Partner Summit 2011.

And, he knows a thing or two about cloud—after all he’s the CEO of the Virtual Computing Enviroment (VCE), the joint venture between Cisco, VMware, and EMC.

When VCE was formed, the goal was to accelerate the transition to fully virtualized environments and private clouds. And with the Vblock, VCE delivers the industry’s first completely integrated IT offering that combines best-in-class virtualization, networking, computing, storage, security, and management technologies with end-to-end vendor accountability.

While I was on site at Partner Summit, I got the chance to chat with Michael Capellas and he discussed the value that VCE brings to our partners.

How does that impact you and your business?

According to Michael, VCE provides the fastest way to roll out the cloud. Michael also notes that everyone in the industry is going to some form of a stack, but Vblock’s top-notch networking, virtualization and storage really combine to make a best-in-class solution.

For partners, VCE is an enabling technology that will allow you to create end-customer value with your customer’s customers. Taking value further down the line—sounds like a good proposition to me!

Got any questions around VCE and Vblock? Be sure to share in the comments.
