Virtualization across the data center is creating the need for tighter integration of servers, networking, and storage. As a result, data center solutions are more frequently being delivered and consumed as a single unit. Cisco, EMC, and VMware together are making significant investments in such solutions to enable IT to extend the value of virtualization for business applications in order to further improve IT efficiency and agility, and accelerate the transformation of IT into "IT As a Service." There is tremendous value in an integrated solution such as the integrated Vblock Infrastructure Packages from Cisco, EMC, and VMware. They offer some of the best technologies available today and have the potential to save IT operations a tremendous amount of time integrating.
