When we launched UCS Mini back in September, it pushed us into new territory with an exciting offering that bundles servers, storage and networking into a single solution — much like the traditional UCS — but in a smaller form factor. It also allowed Cisco to effectively target branch or remote offices and the mid-market with UCS.
This exciting new venture has been validated by a growing number of customers and we’ve just received another validation today: we’re excited to announce that UCS Mini has been nominated as a finalist for the 2015 Best of Interop Awards!

You know the code, “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas”. I’m breaking it. I’ll be joining my Cisco colleagues for COLLABORATE 15 in Las Vegas, but will be sharing all the good stuff we have planned. Even worse, I’ll be taking pictures.
Before you judge, take note of what I’ll be sharing (you would too).
Cisco UCS has earned 37 world records running Oracle database and workloads. Want blazing performance for Oracle E-Business Suite and PeopleSoft without breaking the bank? Cisco UCS delivers. Seriously, this kind of news can’t stay in Vegas.
I’m also looking forward to the preconference bootcamp on Oracle Virtualization and Licensing on April 12th. Dave Welch, CTO and Chief Evangelist with House of Brick Technologies will be joined by Cisco’s John McAbel for a 4 hour deep-dive to help you plan your Oracle deployments and lower licensing costs. Here’s a secret registration tip, send an email to email@example.com to add the bootcamp to your schedule.
