Cisco Unified Computing

January 22nd, 2009 Comments off

So Cisco has decided to enter the server market. They talk about unified computing, i.e. Unified compute management. They want to be the company that provides the oversight of data, network and compute power in your network.

I really thought we would be talking about vmware in that role by now.

I’m not sure that cisco has the right background for this role. Who else might?

Amazon SHOULD be working on that, at least in the AWS space. I’m not seeing it though.

IBM can and probably will at some point. IBM just isn’t the technology leader that they were at one point.

Oracle could do it but we won’t see them here for another 5 years (based on their prior track record).

Sun? Not anymore. MS? Only for Azure?  CA?  Don’t make me laugh.

Yep, vmware really screwed the pooch on this one. Looks like Cisco has figured out a way to make themselves relevant again. And they’re stealing the thunfer of so many companies who are better positioned.

Nice. I own cisco stock. :-)
