Intelligent Automation at Cisco Live in San Diego #CLUS

Are you ready for the biggest Cisco event of the year? We’ve been working on demos, speaking sessions, and social events for the conference – and it’s finally here.

The Intelligent Automation team are converging in force on San Diego for Cisco Live.  Our solutions will be covered in more than a dozen conference sessions and several theater presentations – featured in topics ranging from cloud management and big data to BYOD and VXI.

And here are our demos featured in the Cisco data center booth at the World of Solutions expo:

  • Tidal Enterprise Scheduler on Hadoop – this demo shows how to increase the value of big data environments through better information flow.
  • Network Services Manager – a flexible, policy-driven approach to managing and controlling network services in a multi-tenant data center.
  • VXI Orchestration – provision virtual desktop services on-demand with Intelligent Automation, in minutes instead of days or weeks. 

Intelligent Automation for Cloud and Network Services Manager will also be featured in the CloudVerse area, highlighting our Unified Management capabilities for cloud orchestration and automation.

Our cloud solutions will be featured in theater presentations at the VCE and NetApp booths, as well as a demo in the VCE booth. Some of our other Intelligent Automation technology partners like Comptel, rPath, and Zenoss – as well as channel partners including Presidio and WWT – will also be at the event showcasing our collaboration.  See VCE’s press release featuring Intelligent Automation for Cloud.
