  • Slide: Cisco’s Microsoft Datacenter PortfolioNotes:We use this slide to continue to make the case that we offer a complete end to end solution for MSFT applications. Our portfolio delivers an optimum environment for the MSFT applications. Remember not everybody knows about UCS and people still get surprised when we tell them about our success in the server business…Our portfolio covers the following datacenter disciplines”Compute = UCS, certified for Windows Server 2012Network = Nexus, Nexus 1000V is tightly integrated with Windows Server 2012’s extensible Hyper-V switch.Storage = Our strong partnerships with EMC (VSEPX)and NetApp (FlexPod)Management = We integrate and extend with the MSFT System Center family and PowerShell toolset.Virtualization = WE ARE HYPERVISOR AGNOSTIC. VMware, Hyper-V, Citrix, all are OK…Architectures = Here we educate the audience on our CVDs – Cisco Validated Designs. Prescriptive guidance, reference architectures that we provide on the MSFT applications.
  • Cisco believes that customers can fundamentally begin to transform how they deliver IT and can realize significant economic benefits in doing so. What if you could deploy new capabilities to the business 90% faster than you do today? What if you could eliminate the need to build a new data center because you’ve lowered overall power and cooling consumption. These capabilities are fundamentally delivered by an optimized infrastructure for virtualization and cloud, which dramatically simplifies the data center “system”. Sounds very promising, if not difficult to believe, yet Cisco has customers that have achieved exactly these results.When we talk about savings, here are some examples of what our customers are seeing. Let’s look at some specifics:Infrastructure costs:Audience View Tracking saw a 25% decrease in operating costsCineca was able to quickly and easily migrate 96% of our physical servers to virtual machines.“Comverge saved as much as $200,000 in VMware licensing costs and reduced rack servers from 25 to 6Disaster Recovery- Seven Corners slashed network outages, for cost savings of $100,000 per monthDeployment TimesAudience View Tracking reduced server provisioning from 1.5 days to 1 hourConsert was able to get the [UCS] racks up, configured, and actually have virtual machines running within about three days from when we took the products out of the box National FFA Organization reduced time spent managing physical servers by 80%Enspire reduced provisioning from 13 to 6 weeks, with goal of achieving 2-wk deployments IT StaffingCareCore reduced time to launch new lines of business from 6 months to 2 weeks and increased time software engineers can devote to development from 50% to 80%Columbia Sportswear reduced IT management costs for their SAP deploymentRUN Balzano estimates that their engineers are spending at least 10% less time on management Power/CoolingNational FFA Organization lowered power consumption by 40%
  • In short, Cisco Unified Data Center is the most cost-effective data center you can buy. It is clearly unique in the market, because it is built from the ground up for physical, virtual, and cloud implementations. While others might claim to be delivering one piece of the architecture—we are the only one delivering a unified architecture across compute, network, storage and management—with every element integrating with the others.  Finally, we offer our customers the broadest range of leading ecosystem partners—who have invested in ensuring that their solutions take full advantage of this platform for the tremendous performance, availability, and total cost of ownership advantages it delivers.
  • Slide: Cisco and EMC Introduce VSPEXNotes: VSPEX reference architectures detail virtualization, server, network, and storage technology, providing a complete, integrated virtualization solution validated by Cisco and EMC and packaged and delivered by your trusted partner.
