Join us at EMC World 2014: Redefine the Power of IT

Cisco transforms how people connect, communicate, and collaborate. The Cisco Unified Data Center (UDC) portfolio offers the industry's broadest data center LAN and SAN switching, compute, and integrated services solutions.

Cisco UDC solutions are poised to increase operating efficiencies, simplify IT operations, and enable business agility. Together, Cisco and EMC offer a choice of industry–leading virtual infrastructure architectures that can simplify, automate and transform your IT while helping you accelerate the journey to cloud computing:

  • Build Your Own – Solutions built using tested and proven products and services
  • Reference architectures through VSPEX – Pre–packaged reference architectures
  • Converged infrastructure through joint venture VCE – Vblock, a transformative way to consume virtual infrastructure

These infrastructure architectures are designed to help IT accelerate the transition from a traditional to a virtualized and automated service-oriented data center architecture.

EMC World is the place for attendees to learn how to put cloud computing in action with a host of EMC engineers, customers and partners. EMC World features breakout sessions, tech updates, keynotes, demonstrations, workshops and birds–of–a–feather sessions.
