It’s not hard to understand why the last couple of years have been a golden era for data center transformation. Amid the rise of remote and hybrid work, companies have moved quickly to become more nimble in how they manage data. They don’t just want to keep their files on premises, in a single facility – they want to have the agility to let people work whenever they want, however they want, from wherever they want. This is what the modern employee demands.
On top of all that, though, there are additional market trends that are further reshaping companies’ needs where data management is concerned. For instance, new trends such as artificial intelligence and machine learning are forcing companies to take on new applications and new data to accommodate them. Additionally, technologies like intent-based networking are making an impact. In short, we are rapidly moving toward a new era in business in which everyone and everything are connected. This is placing an extraordinary level of demand on the data center.
This means you need an infrastructure that can keep up – and Cisco has all the right equipment to get you started. For instance, consider the value that your business could get out of using Nexus 9000 switches. The 9000 Series offers you a wide range of new bandwidth-rich features that should translate directly to a faster-performing network. You should also enjoy faster deployment, better application performance, and the potential for multi-cloud orchestration.
For managing your revamped infrastructure, it’s hard to do better than Cisco’s Nexus Dashboard. The Nexus Dashboard offers a new level of simplicity, as you’re able to manage your entire infrastructure through a single pane of glass. Whether you’re dealing with data that’s on-prem, cloud, hybrid, or anything else, it will all be in one place, and you’ll have clear visibility into everything. At times like these, when your data ecosystem is more complex than it’s ever been, easy management is everything.
The bottom line is that Cisco is committed to powering the next decade of data center innovation. With Cisco’s products, you can unlock new, previously unmatched levels of scale and performance, as well as rapid application deployment and dramatically simplified operations. Not only that, but you can adopt a new approach to data that’s truly multi-faceted – you can enjoy service that spans multiple clouds, as well as automation that extends from edge to core, enterprise to data center. With Cisco, all of that is possible.
