Coborn's Inc., a 97-year-old grocery retailer with more than 50 locations, used Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (Cisco ACI) to stretch its data center fabric across two locations 75 miles apart. The company's IT team now manages both locations from a single, central console.
"With ACI in our primary data center connected to an ACI Remote Leaf switch in our secondary data center, we can just drag and drop VMs from one to the other. It allows us to do systems maintenance at any time, without disrupting the business."Aaron MacDonald, Systems Administrator II, Coborn's Inc.
