Data Center 3.0 provides our customers with a roadmap to build mission-critical data centers that improves collaboration within their organisations while dramatically reducing power consumption," said Tatchapol Poshyanonda, Cisco's managing director.
Over the next 24 months, Cisco will deliver innovative new products, programs, and capabilities to help customers realize the Cisco Data Center 3.0 vision. New products and programs announced today support that vision, representing the first steps in helping customers to create next-generation data centers.
