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!

Best of Interop 2015 Finalist

Cisco UCS has a history of winning big at Interop. When Cisco Unified Computing System was announced in 2009, it won the Best of Interop award in the Data Center & Storage category. The award is open to new products released within the last year.

Other Cisco finalists are:

Interop General Manager Jennifer Jessup commented, “We extend a big congratulations to Cisco and all Best of Interop finalists on the success of their new products and positive impact on business efficiency. These are the types of advancements that define the future of IT, and we’re excited for Interop attendees to be able to experience them firsthand in the Expo.”

Winners will be announced on Tuesday, April 28 at 5:30 pm in the Interop Theater on the Expo Floor. Good luck to everyone who was nominated.
