It’s that time of year again. No, not the time to start making summer plans for the kids, but instead the time for Cisco Live 2019. We all know that amongst the thousands of customers and the hundreds of partners and booths, it can be overwhelming to find the right solutions.

Well, for those interested in data protection, hyperconvergence, and recovery this blog is perfect for you. Keeping with the “show” theme let’s set the stage.

Transforming your business with Cisco

By working with a number of customers, and partners we at Cisco have found that a lot of enterprises and small companies are moving to a business strategy that requires that their infrastructure be able to support, meet, and exceed the performance and recovery requirements for business-critical applications.

With the amount of data being created, stored, and accessed, CIOs and IT teams are striving to ensure that their users and customers data will always be there and protected.

How do you do that with Cisco? And how does this have anything to do with Cisco Live?

Well…. over the past few years Cisco has taken a huge step forward to provide customers and partners the opportunities to deploy solutions that are specifically designed to meet the demands of their business.
