Cisco leads the top enterprises along their journey to these new technogies. The data center was the latest Cisco technology to have a major impact on the IT departments of enterprises and service providers. Cisco Unified Computing Systems (UCS) are taking the data center by storm. This is not your grandfather's server. Cisco UCS has distances data center performance from the competitors. More on this in a later blog.

They want cloud automation on UCS with Nexus and storage from EMC and Netapp. We have found that as an IT shop moves from Physical to Virtual to PODs to Private Cloud, they need automation. They need self service and a standardized service catalog. They need service orchestration where the physical and virtual world meet with your favorite hypervisor, Cisco networking, and storage. Cisco has a solution called Cisco Intelligent Automation for Cloud:
This software stack for automation of cloud provisioning can be used to build a cloud automation system to your companies specifications. While we have functionality out of box, you can design your service offers to meet your need. In fact Cisco IT uses this platform to provide private cloud to Cisco employees.
