For the first time, we’re taking the Roving Reporters and Engineers Unplugged abroad! This event will be covered by Josh Atwell (@Josh_Atwell) and myself, and we’re shooting several episodes of our new video podcast, which we’ll be releasing every Wednesday.
We are in the middle of several major market trends and transitions, including mobility, cloud and virtualization. Security is at the center of these massive transitions, and our customers tell us that they want simplicity and seamlessly integrated solutions for their network architectures. These industry disruptions require new thinking to create innovative technological solutions that will solve our customers’ biggest problems.
Enter Bret Hartman.
Bret has joined Cisco as the new Chief Technology Officer (CTO) for the Security Technology Group, which encompasses all of Cisco’s core security products. For Cisco, Bret will define our overall security technology strategy, particularly as it relates to how security technology integrates across the network infrastructure. Ensuring that our strategy transitions into value-added customer solutions will be critical as we move to an integrated security architecture that leverages the network.
It’s Wednesday, time for a fresh episode of Engineers Unplugged! This week features VCE’s Tom Chatham (@tchatham) and EMC’s Travers Nicholas (@traversn) in a joint whiteboarding session around virtualization, VPLEX, and workload mobility.
Welcome to Engineers Unplugged, where technologists talk to each other the way they know best, with a whiteboard. The rules are simple:
Episodes will publish weekly (or as close to it as we can manage)
In attending numerous educational sessions lead by today’s leadership within community policing and public safety, we’re seeing some common themes emerging with respect to challenges. Some key insights have been as follows: Read More »
Of course, we at Cisco are aware of how desktop virtualization benefits organizations. However, we also know that it isn’t just about desktop-only virtualization. This is why we created Cisco Virtualization Experience Infrastructure (VXI) to not only deliver desktop virtualization but also provide secure access to data, voice and video for fixed and mobile devices.
I recently read several success stories of educational institutions who turned to Cisco VXI and Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) to help reduce costs and IT management overhead while increasing internal and external collaboration. Two of these case studies -- one from K-12 and one higher education -- are listed below. If you are interested in the topic, they are definitely worth the read. Read More »
