  2. 2. What is “Integrated Infrastructure”? Major analysts firms differ slightly on the taxonomy and makeup of the various integrated infrastructure systems that comprise this market segment. However, they do agree that these systems include a combination of servers, networking, storage systems, and management software. © 2013-2014 Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. 2 2
  3. 3. Integrated Infrastructure Momentum Analyst Views on Shift to Integration “By year-end 2015, 35% of total server shipped value will be as integrated systems.” “By 2015, converged infrastructure will represent 9.5% of the $64B services, software, and hardware markets.” “By 2017, nearly two-thirds of all enterprise application infrastructures will be packaged in the form of a converged solution.” “Cisco continues to be an important part of the integrated systems market and is an integral element of VCE's offerings, as well as FlexPod. The reference architecture offerings of Hitachi/Hitachi Data Systems, as well as Cisco solutions for EMC's VSPEX platform, also utilize Cisco components. This is partly due to the technology strengths of Cisco's Unified Computing System (UCS).“ - Gartner © 2013-2014 Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. 3
