“UC on UCS” is used to describe the placement of virtualized Cisco Unified Communications or Collaboration applications onto a Cisco Unified Compute System. Recently, a few clients have asked about the benefits of implementing UC on UCS, especially now that UC virtualization is also supported on other major Blade systems. The answer is simple: control, support and vendor commitment.

This year’s Partner Summit has already been one of the most impactful summits I have been to and I have seen 14 of the 17 Cisco has hosted. That is a pretty bold statement being that the summit just started, but let me justify that.

Today kicked off day one of the 2013 Cisco Partner Summit. This is the first time I've had the opportunity to attend and to be perfectly honest, I wasn't sure what I was in for. I've attended numerous partner virtual team events in the past and I’m no stranger to Cisco partner facing events, but this event in particular allowed me to be an audience member to the likes of John Chambers, Bruce Klein, and Edison Peres. I've said numerous times, listening to someone’s message in his or her own environment is the most compelling way to receive it, and I wasn't disappointed.

I recently had a chance to get my hands on Cisco’s new MDS 9710 fabric director at EMC World 2013 and I can describe it in two words, common sense.    Common sense is defined by Merriam-Webster as “sound and prudent judgment based on a simple perception of the situation or facts”.   As part of the Cisco’s Storage Networking line and neatly following in the MDS 9513’s path, the MDS 9710 provides  reliability, performance and scale, and represents the new standard in data center storage networking.
