Join Cisco at the Microsoft Management Summit 2013, April 8 - 12, at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, Las Vegas.

Cisco Unified Data Center provides simplicity, agility, and financial efficiency to customers and partners. Join us at Microsoft Management Summit where you can learn how the Cisco and Microsoft partnership is empowering your innovation.

Next-generation IT requires the unification of networking, computing, management, and security. Cisco Unified Data Center (UDC) solutions feature integration with Windows Server 2012 and System Center 2012. They are designed to help you increase operating efficiencies, simplify IT operations, and improve business agility.

Unified Data Center is based on three Cisco innovation pillars: Unified Fabric, Unified Computing, and Unified Management. It supports cloud computing by simplifying provisioning and management of shared physical and virtual resources, within and across data centers. This unified approach with programmable infrastructure reduces costs and frees up IT resources to support strategic business initiatives.

We look forward to seeing you at Microsoft Management Summit 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

This session covers how Cisco virtual networking solutions (Cisco Nexus 1000V and Cisco UCS VM-FEX) can help simplify virtual networking. It shows how they help to enable consistency across physical and virtual networks and provide an advanced networking feature set. The session also details Cisco integration with System Center Virtual Machine Manager to provide a non-disruptive operational model to the server team. Attend this session to learn about Cisco Nexus 1000V and Cisco UCS VM-FEX architecture. Also discover the virtual networking services they bring to Hyper-V environments, and how they can simplify network operations.
