Next week the Cisco team is again excited to be attending Dell EMC World in Las Vegas. Cisco and Dell EMC continue to deliver tremendous value to customers through Vblock/VxBlock converged infrastructure systems. These systems combine the compute power of Cisco’s UCS servers, Cisco Nexus networking technology, with Dell EMC storage. The combination of Cisco and Dell EMC allows customers to adopt best-of-breed technology within a Vblock system that is easy to deploy and operate.


According to the Q4 2016 IDC Converged Systems Tracker, Vblock/VxBlock is the leader in the integrated systems and reference architecture segment with 41% market share. We
continue to extend the value of Vblock/VxBlock with Vscale fabrics to easily scale out modern data centers and share resources across multiple Vblock systems.

Cisco UCS based integrated systems continue to dominate that segment with greater than 70% market share. And, for the second year in a row, Cisco was named the Integrated Systems leader by IT Brand Pulse for market leadership, innovation, reliability, and performance.

Cisco UCS is a revolutionary system enabling:

  • IT to quickly respond to changing business conditions
  • Simplified and increased operational velocity by leveraging automation and ensuring consistent policy and security through policy-based configuration



This year Cisco is a Platinum sponsor at Dell EMC World 2017.  We have two great speaking sessions focusing on Vblock with Cisco and Dell EMC innovations and data center storage networking. There are also several additional featured sessions relating to Vblock/VxBlock and Cisco technology. This year our demo stations will feature Vblock with Cisco UCS, Cisco CloudCenter, Cisco MDS, Tetration, and Vblock/Vxblock and Vscale with Cisco ACI. Cisco will again have some great opportunities to win cool prizes including Apple TVs after each theatre presentation and Microsoft Surface Pro tablets at the end of day raffles.

Please stop by the Cisco booth (#631) and chat with our experts and check out our interactive booth demos and theater presentations.

I hope to see you in Vegas.
