When measuring competitive differentiation in milliseconds, connectivity is a key component for any financial services company’s data center strategy. In planning the move of its primary data center, a large international futures and commodities trading company needed to find a provider that could deliver the high capacity connectivity it required.
Sensors are an easy to install, cost-effective way to reduce energy costs, improve reliability, and increase capacity for future data center growth. But most managers do little beyond monitoring the temperature by checking the thermostat reading on the wall.
Not all VDI solutions are alike.

Interest in cloud computing over the last several years has been phenomenal. For cloud providers, public or private, it will transform business and operational processes, streamlining customer on-ramping and time to market, facilitating innovation, providing cost efficiencies, and enabling the ability to scale resources on demand.
Cisco's Virtualized Multi-tenant Data Center (VMDC) system defines an end-to-end architecture, which an organization may reference for the migration or build out of virtualized, multi-tenant data centers for new cloud-based service models such as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).
The data center has gone through many major evolutionary changes over the past several decades, and each change has been defined by major shifts in architectures. The industry moved from the mainframe era to client/server computing and then to Internet computing. In 2011, another major shift began: the shift to a virtual data center. This has been the primary driver in enabling customers to transition to the cloud and ultimately IT as a service. The shift to a virtual data center will be the single biggest transition in the history of computing. It will reshape all the major data center tiers: applications, storage, servers and the network.
More than ever, the data center is a gateway to opportunity, responsible for bringing together the data, applications, and IT resources needed to support growth and innovation. At Cisco we have the opportunity to observe how data center infrastructure is evolving in response to market and technology trends. In no particular order, here are five important strategies we see companies using to overcome the limitations of traditional IT infrastructure and transform their data centers to support innovation and growth.
