Cisco booth 221 at EMC World 2015: Stop, Win, and Save (SWS)

I’m looking forward to EMC World 2015 at the Venetian in Las Vegas where thousands of attendees will meet and learn about the latest in storage, networking, and solutions.  To that end of learning more,  this year it is easier and more rewarding than ever to engage with Cisco at EMC World. Just drop by our booth or attend a Cisco breakout session, learn about our latest products, technologies, and solutions, and win great prizes.

Stop at Cisco Booth 221

For attendees to learn more about Cisco technologies, Cisco offers demonstrations, a mini-theater, three breakout sessions and an area carved out for engineers unplugged.

Demonstrations cover the following Cisco products and solutions:

Our mini theatre includes presentations from Cisco and our technology partners. A quick summary of our theater content:

Engineers Unplugged offers another avenue to learn about Cisco technologies.  Engineers and technical marketers explain the benefits of Cisco data center technologies, while being recorded.  Attendees can listen to a quick conversation at EMC World or take in the video later at their own convenience.   #EngineersUnplugged: Episodes will be shot Monday through Wednesday.

In addition, Cisco hosts three breakout speaking sessions including:

  • Cisco UCS & EMC Solutions

  • Take a selfie wearing a Cisco UCS hat and also win a chance at a Dr. Dre Ear Bud, one winner per day


Perhaps most importantly is the long-term savings customer gain by moving to Cisco technologies.  One example is Cisco UCS servers and Cisco UCS Integrated Infrastructure.

Customers the world over have benefited as Cisco has seen its server customer base increase from zero to over 41,000 in a little more than 5 years.   In fact, Cisco UCS serves has grown extremely fast in nearly every dimension.



In addition, the UCS architectures and these differentiators deliver significant benefits to your organization:

  1. Save on software licensing costs
  2. Increase server availability dramatically
  3. Decrease server deployment errors
  4. Automate at all levels
  5. Cloud-proof your future infrastructure needs

Benefits Slide (cobble)

UCS Integrated Infrastructure take these UCS Servers benefits to the next level, combining UCS Servers, Nexus switches and UCS Director with EMC storage. UCS Integrated Infrastructure plus

  1. EMC Storage = Cisco Solutions for EMC VSPEX or Vblock

UCS Integrated Infrastructure _EMC World_II

UCS Integrated Infrastructure can really be thought of as the “Intel Inside” of Vblocks and Cisco Solutions for EMC VSPEX.   Much of the IP of a Vblock or Cisco Solutions for EMC VSPEX is contained in these Cisco technologies.

Cisco Integrated Infrastructure, Vblocks and Cisco Solutions for EMC VSPEX offer all the benefits of UCS Servers and more. UCS Integrated Infrastructure inherits all these UCS Server benefits of saving money, higher productivity, increased agility and integration and combines them EMC storage for even greater customer benefits of integration and fast deployment and faster time to value of complete solutions.

Please stop, win and save at Cisco booth 221 for EMC World 2015!
