One of the key benefits of moving to the cloud is that someone else–your service provider–takes care of the day-to-day management of your technology. You can focus on adding value at a higher level. Scale capacity and increase your company’s productivity by introducing new capabilities such as collaboration applications or desktop-as-a-service.
Unfortunately, not all clouds are created equal. The success of your business relies upon the quality of the services you choose. You might not experience the level of losses Best Buy did when their site went down on Black Friday, but unplanned downtime can still seriously hurt your business.
The technology inside the cloud services you use really does matter. When you buy commodity-class services, you have no guarantee of the performance, reliability, or even availability of your business-critical data and applications.
This is why Intel and Cisco are working together to deliver enterprise-class cloud services you can rely upon. These two leaders offer more than just promises. Both companies have a long history of proven quality and reliability. Services built upon their technology provide fast time-to-market, offer assured performance, and leverage ongoing innovation.
This assurance of quality is extended to your service provider as well. Cisco identifies cloud providers meeting its highest standards with the Cisco Powered logo. These partners must undergo a rigorous third-party audit to verify that they are able to deliver as promised. This means your services are also protected with end-to-end security. And, with the rise of the Intercloud, you’ll benefit from workload portability between clouds and the ability to comply with local data sovereignty regulations.
You trust Intel and Cisco inside your data center. Now you can trust them inside your cloud services. Intel and Cisco. Connect with confidence.
