May 20, 2014 at 7:00 am PST

This week we are celebrating with more than 25,000 attendees at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, and many more viewers  on line the 25th anniversary of Cisco Live and it’s an exciting time for Cisco and our partners! As John Chambers described it so eloquently  in his Monday keynotes, customers are embracing the opportunities around the Internet of Everything and are looking for us to help them realize the benefits and manage the transition. And cloud deployment is certainly a critical component of this new IT world.

Since we announced our Intercloud strategy at Partner Summit, it continues to build momentum. This week, we are taking the next bold step and announcing new offers and new partnering models.   We are expanding beyond our hosted collaboration and SaaS offerings with a richer set of cloud services.
