I am not a big Starbucks fan but let us face it, it’s nice to go there, sit down and have a coffee while you work. The sound, the ambiance or let us say the customer experience it’s good. When you are in a hurry and especially if you are in a business area, the lines get very long and on a Monday morning, you really need some caffeine to boost your Data Center brain.

Guest Post: Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) at the Core of Private Cloud
Have you ever wondered why some organizations are more successful in delivering services and applications with serious resource constraints to its every increasing distributed workforce? Chances are the IT teams are using some variation of cloud computing to solve these and other modern day IT challenges. Private cloud serves as an enabler for organizations to deliver IT as a service (ITaaS). This makes organizations more agile and efficient through reduction of cost, economies of scale and increased efficiency. Cisco uses its innovative cloud platform to facilitate automation, virtualization and simplification to increase business value whilst reducing total cost of ownership (TCO). Cisco cloud services can be delivered using three methods: first, there is the Cisco private cloud (through internally hosted or owned infrastructure), second, through public cloud (cloud provider delivers services) and finally, a hybrid model (a mix of the previous two).
Check-In…to a IT Service Broker Model
On a recent trip to Silicon Valley, I stayed at a Marriott near the office. Although it was my first time at this particular hotel, I generally knew what to expect; comforts of the room, consistency of friendly staff, pervasive wireless internet access, and a simple bottle of water upon arrival, having stayed at other Marriott properties in the past. I count on this familiarity, this experience, to keep my work/life balance in check while I travel. Many well-traveled IT Pros can relate to this scenario as it plays out many times a day, across multiple industries all over the world.
