Gartner Data Center, Infrastructure & Operations Management Summit

Today's data centers are faced with increasing business demands and technology transitions. Applications that run in the data center are essential and power incredible new opportunities in the Internet of Everything (IoE). Demand for IT innovation is increasing at an ever-faster pace. More applications- and different applications-are changing the demands on IT infrastructure. IT organizations need to harness new technologies and capabilities to be more responsive to the business.

Complex data center infrastructure hampers performance, increases operating costs and risk, and saps resources for innovation. Cisco has addressed these challenges with Cisco Data Center Solutions, based on a radically simplified, fabric-centric architecture packed with innovation designed to support a wide range of workloads and IT operating models. Cisco offers a holistic architecture with centralized automation and policy-driven application profiles.
