The Cisco Unified Data Center combines practical ways to overcome the limitations and constraints that affect your data center with leading network, compute, storage and virtualization technologies to help you reduce total cost of ownership, accelerate business growth, and extend the lifecycle of current infrastructure. With hardware-based virtualization enhancement, unified networking support, and intelligent server platforms, Intel provides the building blocks for the unified data center.

  • Unified Computing
    Cisco and Intel are helping IT accelerate data center transformation by unifying networking & virtualization technologies, simplifying how virtualization is utilized, and amplifying customer opportunities to massively reduce total cost of ownership (TCO). Cisco’s Unified Computing solution, based on Intel Xeon processor 5500 series, provides TCO savings and delivers substantial improvements in performance, energy efficiency, and virtualization. Learn more about what Cisco and Intel are doing for UCS.
  • Unified Fabric
    Cisco and Intel are driving unified fabric technologies that will consolidate the data center network onto a common, trusted fabric – Ethernet. These transformational technologies will create a flexible network fabric that is optimized for the dynamic, virtualized data center. Unified fabric will also simplify the data center network, making it more cost-effective and easier to manage.
  • 10GBASE-T
    Cisco, Intel and Panduit are offering 10GBASE-T Ethernet solutions that will make data center 10G migration easy and cost-effective. Listen to industry experts’ vision on why 10GBASE-T will be the connectivity of choice in next-generation data center.
