Cloud Preparation Services Launched by CiscoBy Baselinemag | Posted 2010-07-01 Email Print
As Cisco Systems reinvents itself partly as a cloud-computing infrastructure provider, it needs to add a set of services to wrap around all the hardware and software it wants to sell. Cisco is providing a menu of cloud system components, including products of its own and from partners such as EMC, NetApp, VMware, Microsoft and BMC.Cisco Systems aims to prepare potential customers before they commit to building a cloud computing system.
On June 30, that's what the company did, launching a set of what it calls Cloud Enablement Services to go with its growing Data Center Solutions Portfolio. The idea is to prepare potential customers before they commit to building a cloud system.
Of course, that portfolio contains presanctioned components from Cisco and its partners that make up Cisco's Unified Computing System: Cisco's own Intel-based servers and switches, EMC or NetApp storage, VMware virtualization middleware, Microsoft applications, and BMC data center management software, among others.
