For those of you who follow the Cisco Data Center blog in general and my blogs in particular, you’re probably thinking it is time I updated you on this topic. You’re right! But it is almost time for Cisco Live and I will be presenting it there.

If you’re not familiar with this presentation, it ties Cisco UCS server innovations and technologies to CapEx and OpEx savings. Woven throughout are examples from Cisco customers. There are also two actual TCO studies from a university and major travel service provider.

I encourage you to join me at Cisco Live for session PSODCT-1401. I’ll also be Data Center section in the World of Solutions Expo. Come find me there or schedule a conversation via Meet the Expert.

If you aren’t able to attend, there is an older version on SlideShare which will be updated after Cisco Live.


Would you like to learn more about how Cisco UCS can help you? There are more than 250 published datacenter case studies on Cisco.com. Additionally, there is a TCO/ROI tool that will allow you to compare your existing environment to a new UCS Solution. For a more in-depth TCO/ROI analysis, contact your Cisco partner.
