Today, the Cisco Unified Computing System (Cisco UCS) portfolio offers solutions for a whole range of uses that automate compute, storage, and networking in public, private, and hybrid clouds–no matter how large or small the data center.
Fast IT represents a whole new model for operating efficiency, business enablement, and security. It's a way for IT leaders and their line-of-business counterparts who control the budget to leverage the benefits of both centralized control and decentralized computing.
Centralized control versus computing at the edge
Increase visibility, programmability, and control.
Anticipate threats and protect against them before they happen.
This model helps IT managers support both current business applications and new analytics-driven applications. Your organization's most senior technology leaders are working to help drive innovation and results. Building a system in which all of an organization's computing resources (from edge to core to cloud) share a common management platform is the key to growth.

Cisco offers you a platform for the next-generation data center. Cisco UCS is a fabric-centric computing environment that offers unmatched capabilities through a full range of features.
IT managers can automate networking services, overcome the challenge of siloed data centers, and choose their own paths to the cloud at a pace that makes sense for their organization by taking advantage of Cisco UCS Director software within the Cisco ONE Enterprise Networks Architecture.
Cisco ONE Software brings simplicity and clarity to buying software for your data center, WAN, and access domains. At each stage in the product lifecycle, Cisco ONE Software helps make buying, managing, and upgrading your network and infrastructure software simple and clear.
Cisco and its intercloud partners offer hybrid cloud services that are highly secure, open, flexible, and hypervisor agnostic through more than 250 data centers in 50 countries. With Cisco Intercloud Fabric, IT managers can build highly secure hybrid clouds that extend their existing data centers to public clouds as needed, on demand, and with consistent network and security policies.
Our UCS Integrated Infrastructure solutions allow businesses to deploy any possible type of computing—applications, analytics, collaboration—in any location and manage it with a single management pane. It’s about reducing risk, saving time, and lowering costs. Cisco UCS also gives businesses the ability to analyze data and create better insights wherever they need them, in branch offices, on oil rigs, or next to large data warehouses.
The Cisco UCS technology portfolio provides a broad range of hardware options optimized for diverse applications and use cases.
Cisco delivers the operational velocity that allows companies to stay competitive, develop additional markets, and drive new revenues. Agile infrastructure, open APIs, and automation software help IT stay ahead of business needs. The new applications, precision analytics, and intercloud access that business leaders need can be deployed almost instantly.
A functional and highly flexible data center requires more than high-quality components to create value. You also need best practices and the appropriate people, processes, and information to tie everything together. Cisco Services can help your organization unleash the full potential of your data center and transform it from a cost center to a revenue generator.
To help you transform your organization into a more cohesive, agile, and cost-effective business resource, Cisco Services uses the Cisco Domain Ten framework to analyze the ten domains, or key elements, of the corporate IT environment:
Once this assessment has been made and key gaps analyzed, a typical next step for many customers is to deploy Data Center Optimization Services.
Assess the fit for your organization with the Forrester Research Total Economic Impact (TEI) report. Based on actual Cisco customer experiences, Forrester’s TEI methodology assessed Cisco Domain Ten–based services to address four critical questions:

In a world where everything and everyone is connected, companies recognize the need to transform the way they manage data and the entire IT infrastructure. As a result, a new way of understanding the data center is emerging.
Cisco has developed a holistic, first-of-its-kind approach that starts with industry- leading products to connect core and edge applications, provides services to help you customize your computing platforms, delivers an outstanding ecosystem of technology partners, and places your organization at the center of everything–everywhere.
