Why is now the time to migrated from your proprietary RISC/UNIX platform to Cisco UCS with Red Hat Enterprise Linux. There are several reasons: Technology transitions are driving new demands on data center and IT infrastructure. These new applications and computing models have standardized on x86 architecture while aging RISC/UNIX infrastructure doesn’t provide the performance or the flexibility required to support the needs of the business. IT departments may also be experiencing the pain of RISC/UNIX maintenance and software licensing costs while their budgets are flat or shrinking. At the same time, overarching uncertainty about RISC/UNIX futures foreshadowed by rapidly declining market share combined with dropped hardware and software support. According to the most recent IDC Q42014 server tracker, RISC revenue has dropped 40% from 2012 to 2014 while Cisco UCS revenue has increased 80%.
Cisco and Red Hat are industry leaders with vast mission-critical application experience. We understand the scalability, security, availability, and reliability requirements of mission-critical applications in the data center. I urge you to watch this new webcast as we reveal the reasons behind why making the migration from RISC/UNIX to Red Hat Enterprise Linux on Cisco UCS is essential for those wanting to improve the effectiveness, functionality, and efficiency of their data centers.
