Inside Cisco IT: Elastic Infrastructure Services
(Original Webinar August 7, 2012)
Cisco IT has been a fundamental factor in building and adapting the suite of management tools needed today to orchestrate virtual data center infrastructure to deliver business services. Attendees will learn how Cisco IT is architecting, designing, and implementing these next-generation virtual data center orchestration solutions and possible directions for cloud computing management.
Cisco IT is migrating most of its traditional data center applications to a radically simplified virtual compute platform. This has significantly reduced the number of network and server devices and the cable overhead within the data center, while also speeding deployment time and overall application deployment agility. We have aggressively deployed Cisco Unified Computing System servers and Cisco Nexus physical and virtual switches to provide the infrastructure foundation for cloud computing inside Cisco.
CITEIS Gen2 Program Delivering Multitenant IaaS Cloud Solution is an end-to-end, fully integrated CIAC-based cloud solution. Attendees will learn about the difficulties involved in migrating a heterogeneous set of data center platforms and applications to a virtualized platform. Attendees will also hear Cisco IT’s initial results of this server platform migration in terms of cost savings and power reduction as well as enabling more reliable data center architectures at an acceptable cost.
