One of the great things about being a market disruptor is that you don’t need to carry along all of the baggage that slow down other companies as technology or market transitions occur. Of course, one of the frequent challenges to being a disruptor is that you often have to ask customers to adopt an entirely new technology standard in order to realize the benefits of your product.
Making it Easier to Deploy and Enhance Cloud Infrastructure
Open standards. Open ecosystem. Needs for higher bandwidth. Needs for greater levels of security. Faster application response times. Demand for new levels of flexibility in moving from legacy Data Center architectures to Cloud Computing models. At Cisco, we hear these demands from our customers and partners every day as we deliver solutions to help them drive greater productivity into their business.
But we realize that we can’t deliver innovative solutions to the market alone. Not only do we need to work with partners that create world-class technology, but we need partners that are committed to creating intelligent environments that drive participation from every part of the market.
Today Intel launched the Intel Cloud Builder program, part of it’s broader Cloud 2015 initiative. This multi-vendor initiative is committed to helping customers as they migrate to various forms of Cloud Computing. Intel Cloud Builder brings together industry leaders to drive new innovations, to educate customers about technology and trends, and to deliver solutions (via Reference Architectures) that can be deployed today.
