Source: Cisco Systems
The University of Wyoming offers undergraduate and graduate education, research, and outreach services. The University wanted to accommodate more data center users, applications and also wanted to provide future 10 Gigabit Ethernet access to a remote supercomputer center by creating a platform for the future. To master these challenges the university chose Cisco Systems. The university deployed a Cisco Nexus 7000 Switch as the core. Servers and iSCSI storage connect to the Cisco Nexus 7000 Switch through a pair of Cisco Catalyst 4948 10 Gigabit Ethernet Switches at the end of each row. The university is transitioning from rack-mount servers to blade servers, as part of its virtualization strategy. The blade servers are equipped with Cisco Catalyst Blade Switches 3120X.
