More Happenings at Cisco IT

January 9, 2009 - 0 Comments

I has a chance to sit down with Sidney and Doug before the holidays to catch up. So, in this installment of the DC TechMinute, Doug talks about the various server cabling options we are looking at in our data center and Sidney covers what we are doing with server virtualization and plans in the year ahead.I’d actually like to start opening this discussion up to you, out faithful readers, so if you have any data center related questions for our Cisco IT folks, please post them as comments to this post and I’ll ask the guys next time we chat.For details on how IT is supporting 4,000 apps on 15,000 physical and virtual servers, click here. The business metrics around this are pretty cool $19M of savings/cost avoidance, while still dealing with 15% Y/Y server growth. While you are on the Cisco on Cisco website, check out the virtual tour. Hosted by Doug, these 2-5 minute segments take you inside Cisco’s SJ data center and show you how we handle things like servers, storage, operations, risk management and what our future plans look like.
