Setting the Foundation for Data Center Virtualization


Published on

Today the Data Centre is at the heart of IT and business innovations. As the Data Centre evolves from a pure cost centre to a strategic asset to achieve business goals, Cisco is evolving our Data Centre Architectural Framework to help accelerate IT Innovations that deliver better business value. Ed Bugnion will explain that to do this successfully it is important to have a reliable and strategic roadmap to establish the DC foundation, the virtualized services that support the key cloud capabilities such as automation, provisioning and metering.

Applications perform better. Data is transferred faster.Cisco WAAS reduces bandwidth consumption, delaying or eliminating increased recurring bandwidth costs. Cisco WAAS enables IT consolidation, reducing both capital and recurring expenses for branch IT infrastructure.Cisco WAAS delivers increased business agility by enabling IT consolidation and enhanced application rollouts without the risk of degraded productivity or added complexity. Ultimate agility is available with Cisco ISR G2 and the Services-Ready Engine (SRE), offering WAN optimization “on demand” as business needs arise.Cisco WAAS enhances business continuity by shrinking backup windows and achieving recovery point objectives for storage administrators.Cisco WAAS offers a superior end-user application experience by enabling rich media and collaborative applications with high performance without affecting the performance of other applications across the WAN.For distributed data, that is, data still stored in branches, and backed-up over the WAN. Conversely, Cisco WAAS enables data to be centralized, which further shrinks backup windows and enhanced restores. There are multiple use cases as WAN optimization and WAAS pertains to backup optimization, and appropriate messaging needs to be delivered depending on the target audience and their architecture.
