VCE Heads to Cisco Live in San Francisco

first_imgNext week VCE will be sponsoring Cisco Live US 2014 in San Francisco. Cisco will be highlighting how its ecosystem helps customers realize the full potential of the Internet of Everything – and VCE has a big part to play!As the leader in converged infrastructure, VCE is pioneering the path to IT transformation, helping customers rapidly deploy new infrastructure and applications with the highest performance and availability and at the lowest total cost of ownership.VCE recently announced the next step in that transformation – new Vblock™ Systems will enable enterprise and service provider customers to rapidly adopt Cisco Application-Centric Infrastructure (ACI) in their data centers. The new Vblock Systems include Cisco Nexus 9000-series switches, which serve as the building blocks for Cisco ACI. Combining the strength of VCE Vblock Systems with Cisco ACI will help customers further transform their IT infrastructure by delivering a holistic architecture with centralized automation and new policy-driven application profiles.VCE will be showcasing a Vblock System with Cisco Nexus 9000 in our booth (#1121) and describing the first proof of concept for Cisco ACI. Attendees should drop by the booth to discover how these “ACI-ready” Vblock Systems, combined with VCE Vision™ Intelligent Operations software, will help IT professionals manage the demands of new cloud applications by simplifying and scaling operations.VCE experts in the booth will also provide demos and presentations on VCE Vision Intelligent Operations, VCE policy management, and new VCE solutions with Cisco. Attendees can speak to our technology experts to walk through the demos and answer questions about how VCE is transforming IT through these new software and solution innovations.VCE will also be speaking at the show, with Ted Streete, Office of the CTO at VCE, presenting, “How the Cheetah Catches Dinner: The Importance of Agility in a World Defined by Speed” at the Solutions Theater on Wednesday, May 21 at 11:00 a.m. PT. Ted will describe how customers will use VCE Vblock Systems and the powerful network abstractions provided by Cisco ACI to enhance IT agility and accelerate business growth. In addition to Ted’s presentation, Steve Phillips will be moderating a Table Topic on Tuesday, May 20 from 11:30-12:30 on Vblock Systems and ACI.With five Vblock Systems spread out across the show floor (in the VCE, Cisco and VMware booths), attendees will have many opportunities to learn about VCE converged infrastructure at Cisco Live. Whether it’s a standard Vblock System 300 series or one of our Vblock Specialized Systems, stop by to let VCE show how it can transform IT.“If you are looking for in-depth coverage of VCE activities at Cisco Live, keep a close eye on our Vblog for live-blogs during the show, as well as our events page for full coverage.
