Visitors to the booth get all the latest deets about Application Networking Services (ANS) and Application Control Engine (ACE) Integration with Oracle.

Attendees at a breakout session heard from Oracle and Cisco about UCS, data center architectures, and how the companies are working together with our partners to deliver customer solutions.  I visited with folks from Oracle and Cisco and learned how solutions from both companies are helping customer NaviSite increase profits and efficiency.
