Evolution of Cloud Computing: We are seeing Cloud computing is intersecting large trends – SDN, Big Data and IoE - Forming a new perfect storm and a virtuous cycle of innovation Each of these trends all feed each otherMore and more things getting connected to internet – IoELeads to need for need for Big Data and to analyze thisCloud platforms are the best way to accomplish thisTo realize the cloud platforms we need SDNFor example, Big data is being used on top of cloud – to provide big data SaaS applications Cloud really allows for dynamic scaling of Big Data because of the enormous amounts of dataAnd Cloud is the perfect place to do that by utilizing what some call the 3 Vs of cloud – volume, velocity and variety

Unified Data Center platform lays the critical foundation for customers to evolve to IT-as-a-Service and cloud by providing the fundamental building blocks required. Cloud defines Infrastructure-as-a-Service as a model by which a standard set of services are delivered on-demand through self-service and automation from a shared pool of resources, as opposed to simply setting up parallel infrastructures. This requires an easily managed and automated solution that is delivered through the integration of Unified Fabric, Computing and Management together. Once you’ve defined a catalog of your standardized services, you can map them to characteristics required of the underlying infrastructure and network (“x” amount of memory, “y” amount of guaranteed bandwidth, “z” amount of load balancing). Through the integration of management with the underlying infrastructure, these services can be created and delivered to the end user and automatically provisioned on the compute and network platforms. This elasticity allows IT managers to utilize resources much more efficiently, which in turn can help reduce costs. Customers are embarking on cloud computing and IT-as-a-Service in order to increase the speed of IT and achieve a lower cost of operations. By standardizing on a set of IT services available from a pool of shared resources, with self-service automated provisioning, customers can streamline their operations and spend more of their time and money on innovations within IT.
• As of Q3FY13 UCS revenue reached a $2B annualized run rate • In Q3FY13, Data Center revenue was 515M growing 77% Y/Y • As of May 2013, there are over 23,000 unique UCS customers which represents 89% Y/Y growth• More than half of all Fortune 500 customers have invested in UCS •• Over 500 customers have booked over 1 Million in UCS solutions and over 1,200 have booked over $500,000• We have over 1700 UCS Specialized partner selling UCS and over 3400 actively selling UCS• 73 World Record Performance BenchmarksAs of CY12 Q4 Cisco is one of the Top 5 Server Vendors based on worldwide Revenue Share
That leadership comes from continuously listening to our customers and investing in R&D to meet their needs. We have seen strong adoption of Cisco Unified Fabric and our continuing market share leadership shows strong adoption by customers.
RamI will leave it to your discretion for the points you would like to keep. I have simplified by removing detail and a couple of the points. If you were to delete items I would of course remove the things that speak to broader collaboration where we embed RHEL and other Red Hat elements into our mainstream products as well our the internal IT reference.
