Cisco IT has already started reaping the benefits of Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) from our early internal deployments. Cost savings rank high, in decreased operating expenditures through automation enabled by ACI and the sharp reduction of manual processes that introduce human errors and operational risk.  

With the greater workload mobility in an ACI environment, we can optimize the amount of network, compute, and storage infrastructure we put in our data centers. And we’re delivering infrastructure and other resources to application developers significantly faster. For more about the benefits of ACI, check out this video from my Cisco IT colleague, Jon Woolwine.
