Private Cloud Enhances Service Delivery
The Microsoft Partner Solutions Center (MPSC) offers enterprise customers, partners, and business units a state-of-the-art IT facility to test and demonstrate hardware and software solutions. Their challenges are to enhance virtualization infrastructure with new, advanced server platform, update processor and memory availability, and decrease data center footprint and improve virtualized services and create private cloud. They chose Cisco to overcome these challenges. Cisco Unified Computing System, Cisco Nexus 7000 and 5000 Series Switches and Cisco Services helps the Microsoft Partner Solutions Center (MPSC) migrate to Cisco UCS in just one day. The results of deploying Cisco were streamlined data center operations with fully automated provisioning, reduced deployment time for host servers from day to less than hour and lowered power usage by 66 percent.
