We Made it Simple, You Made it Happen – 10 years of UCS innovation

In 2009, we came to the industry with the right innovation at the right time – a system that united compute, network, storage access, and virtualization into one system and completely redefined what IT could accomplish. Cisco UCS embraced the power of simplicity and developed a revolutionary computing platform. Our customers adopted this new operating model and innovated in a myriad of exciting ways. And with UCS at their fingertips, they made the world’s coolest malls and hottest entertainment venues, secure banks and forward-thinking hospitals, smart school systems and efficient non-profits. We were convinced, if customers didn’t have to engineer their own computing systems, maybe they could focus on what really mattered; building their business to have the biggest impact possible. And that’s exactly what happened. That’s the story of Cisco’s UCS.


Next week at Cisco Live, we will be celebrating a decade of Unified Computing innovation as we showcase all the ways our customers have “Made it Happen” with Cisco UCS and Cisco HyperFlex. We will commemorate how Cisco UCS came to be, how it has evolved to support your needs and where we can go forward together with computing for Data Center Anywhere. We want to take the opportunity to celebrate our customers and what they have built with UCS.

Visit us in the Data Center Lounge, just outside of the World of Solutions, where there will be a video wall featuring our customer stories. And it doesn’t just stop there, we want to hear your story too, about what you have built with UCS and/or HyperFlex. You will also receive an artist sketch for your social profiles along with a commemorative UCS 10 T-Shirt.
