As Jason Schroedl announced, http://blogs.cisco.com/datacenter/announcing-the-new-cisco-intelligent-automation-for-cloud-starter-edition Cisco’s Intelligent Automation Solutions Business Unit, in conjunction with the Unified Computing System has just announced a solution for customers of UCS and vCenter that want a Cloud Automation system that can perform both Physical and Virtual server provisioning. It is called the starter edition for a reason. We find that many customers are not sure what they want from their cloud and are looking for a great place to start. This is not what I call the “starship enterprise” of clouds. It is the first step that a company will take on their cloud journey.
