TechWiseTV Workshop SAP and the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS)

August 25, 2011 at 2:08 pm PST

Visit Cisco Live Virtual on Wednesday, September 7th at 10am Pacific to view the live TechWiseTV Workshop “SAP and the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS)”. The Cisco Unified Computing System serves as an ideal server platform for SAP since it provides a unique Intel Xeon processor-based industry-standard infrastructure for enterprise-critical applications such as SAP. The Cisco UCS platform offers stateless computing capabilities with dynamic server provisioning, unified fabric, and comprehensive management across both physical and virtual environments for reduced total cost of ownership (TCO). When you combine the UCS platform with Tidal Intelligent Automation software for SAP, you now have a safe, secure, platform that is protected from within the platform itself. As a result the Cisco UCS platform is quickly becoming the server platform of choice for mission-critical solutions from SAP. Experts will be available for live Q&A.

Access is free. Attendees to Cisco Live Virtual can access over 1,600 keynotes, super sessions and technical sessions, as well as network with peers, visit our World of Solutions, and play games.

Speaker: Jimmy Ray Purser
