Discussing Cisco’s Unified Computing System with Wendy Mars

Cloud Computing’s promise; both inside the private data centre and in interactions with remote resources elsewhere

Wmars_150x225.shkl.jpgGlobal networking giant Cisco unveiled Unified Service Delivery (USD) last week, following up on the company’s enthusuastically welcomed Unified Computing System (UCS) hardware announcement back in March.

Taken together, these announcements shed light on the company’s strategy to strengthen its hold over the data centre, and to offer solutions tailored toward the evolving needs of organisations keen to capitalise upon Cloud Computing’s promise; both inside the private data centre and in interactions with remote resources elsewhere on the network.

I spoke with Wendy Mars, Cisco’s Director for Data Centres and UCS here in Europe, and the result has just been released as a podcast.

We talk about UCS and USD, and explore some of the use cases emerging as beta customers and Cisco itself put these technologies through their paces ahead of a broader roll-out in the coming months.

Production of this podcast was supported by Talis, and show notes are available on their Nodalities blog.

In related news, Cisco released a video on YouTube this month in which Wendy responds directly to some of the questions asked about UCS following its announcement, and this is embedded below.
