Cisco Extends Virtualization ReachBy Jeffrey Burt | Print
Cisco announces new, upgraded products as part of its Data Center 3.0 push.
Cisco Systems wants to take the mystery out of virtualization. With virtualization spreading quickly from its roots as a server consolidation play into almost every aspect of IT—from storage to applications to desktops—Cisco is looking to rapidly grow its networking virtualization offerings.
At its Cisco Live user conference June 24 in Orlando, Fla., company officials are laying out the latest steps in their Cisco Data Center 3.0 initiative, which they unveiled during the same conference last year.
The company is rolling out a host of software and services designed to expand what data center administrators can do with virtualization. CEO John Chambers is expected to touch upon these announcements in his keynote address at the show June 24.
