Cisco has announced an array of new data centre products and solutions they say will enable customers to better utilise their data centre resources, deploy more robust business continuance, build cost-effective storage area networks, and enhance data security.
The company has also announced its vision for next-generation data centres, called Data Center 3.0. This entails the real-time, dynamic orchestration of infrastructure services from shared pools of virtualised server, storage and network resources, while optimising application performance, service levels, efficiency and collaboration.
“Cisco’s success is built on listening to our customers and partners and on understanding market transitions,” said John Chambers, chairman and CEO, Cisco.
“Because the network is uniquely positioned within the data center, we are investing in innovations we believe will help our customers to transform their data centers to achieve improved efficiency and increased business productivity.”
Over the next 24 months, Cisco say they will deliver innovative new products, programs, and capabilities to help customers realise the Cisco Data Center 3.0 vision. New products and programs announced here support that vision, representing the first steps in helping customers to create next-generation data centres.
