Cisco data center of the futureToday’s traditional IT model suffers from resources deployed in different, unrelated silos— leading to low utilization, inefficiency, and an inability to respond quickly to changing business needs. In many cases, different business units own the same type of equipment, use it in much the same way and in the same data center, and yet require separate physical systems in order to separate their processes and data from other groups. Cisco and NetApp have teamed up to provide an answer to this problem and are presenting a live webcast on this multi-tenancy virtualized data center solution

Although virtualizing server, network, and storage environments has been effective in increasing utilization of data center resources, adopting cloud computing to deliver IT as a service (ITaaS) in data centers promises to complete the vision of a virtualized environment that is fully service oriented.

To date, the biggest obstacle to adoption of ITaaS has been lack of confidence that data and applications are securely isolated in a cloud-based infrastructure where servers, networks, and storage are all shared resources.

To address this need Cisco, NetApp, and VMWare have joined together to develop the Secure Multi-tenancy (SMT) in a Virtualized Data Center. This is a carefully designed and validated solution for the next generation data center. Please join us for this special live webcast on May 25, 2010, to find out more about this innovative solution.
