Unified Fabric : Cisco Technology Executives Are Answering Your Questions

October 17, 2011 - 0 Comments

On October 25 at 9:00 am PST/ 12:00 pm EST , join a very special webcast  “Evolutionary Fabric. Revolutionary Scale “ with customers, analysts and Cisco executives and experts for conversations about the benefits of Cisco Unified Fabric .

I asked the other day our favorite bloggers Omar Sultan, Brian Gracely and Shashi Kiran to tell me why they think this webcast is important for our customers

“There is a lot going on in the data center these days – There is a continue expansion of virtualization , we see broader adoption of cloud and we see emerging trends, big data being the newest and trendiest of the hot data center topics – So there are folks out there who will tell you, you know what each of these needs special equipment, they have unique requirements , your regular infrastructure will not be able to handle these requirements So what we do believe is that each of these requirements, big data, cloud have their own specific needs , we truly don’t believe that you need purpose built hardware , at least if your infrastructure is built the right way “ Omar Sultan

So this webcast is really about learning how Cisco’s fabric-based approach delivers architectural flexibility across physical, virtual and cloud environments for any application.

For Brian Gracely the equation is simple to remember  : Cisco Unified FABRIC is Fast, Agile, Best of breed, Resiliant, Innovative, Cisco-based

“First It’s Fast : 40Gig, multilink, 10 Gig reunitied, 1 Gig reunited 40 Gig reunited, it’s as fast as you need and in most cases it’s faster wether we are talking about applications world record , per port performance world record , multicast, it’s fast . Second it’s Agile So wether you want to run  a layer 2 network, you want to run a layer 3 network, you’ve got a mix and match of old applications, big data applications, web applications you can run all of those on the Nexus platform We will talk about that  on October 25th . Third Best of Breed : You can interconnect any application you want You’re not locked into a single vendor you’re not locked into a single stack  Resiliant ? It’s Cisco ! Come on you know that the network will be resiliant . You know that it will be highly available no matter how you want to run it Layer 2, Layer 3 ..the network will be there .Five  it’s Innovative On October 25th Cisco is going to  talk about all sort of innovations that we are driving in the server fabric as well as in the switching fabric. Across security across virtualization for cloud computing . And finally it’s from Cisco . You know what you can get for the network from Cisco !”

Our top technology executives, Cisco customers and industry experts will also explain how Cisco is enhancing its virtual security framework, increasing visibility and control of virtual workloads, and reducing deployment time.
