Cisco Unified Computing System Wins Best of INTEROP 2009 for Data Center & Storage

"It's clear that Cisco really examined the server virtualization challenge carefully when they designed the UCS. Everywhere you look, you can see how they focused on removing virtualization bottlenecks and enabling flexible device management at every level - plus they've left plenty of room for growth. That's why the UCS is our choice for the BOI Data Center and Storage Category winner for 2009." — Steven Hill, InformationWeek
