The Journey to the Virtualized Data Center : Microsoft and Cisco Collaboration

December 14, 2009 - 1 Comment

The Data Center of the Future initiative led by Cisco was pleased several months ago to welcome Microsoft as a new partner- Already very active with some solutions such as Windows Server  on WAAS , the relationship between Cisco and Microsoft has reached another level of collaboration with the introduction of the Cisco unified computing systems.

As an introduction to her speaking session at the virtual event “Journey to the Virtualized Data Center” on December 16th at 9:00 am PT,  I asked karen Chan to tell us what the audience can  expect from attending her webcast “Cisco data Center for Microsoft applications” – Karen is a Cisco  engineer working full time with Microsoft to make sure that Hyper-V and the Microsoft applications are running perfectly on the UCS platforms. She is definitely one of  these engineers you want to have on board to deploy effectively your  Microsoft applications , such as Sharepoint and Exchange . So here is another great opportunity to ask directly your question through the live chat during this pre-recorded session. (Register here)

Cisco and Microsoft are building next-generation data center solutions that can help customers achieve optimum value from their IT assets in a unified computing architecture.



Please visit the Cisco Microsoft website to know more on the different collaborative initiatives, and listen to Bill Laing, Corporate Vice President, Windows Server and Solutions Division, Microsoft talks about Microsoft and Unified Computing .
