Interop: Cisco VP on the reality of virtualization
NEW YORK. Cisco VP Marie Hattar came to Interop this morning preaching the benefits of Virtualization, But first she started with a discussion of what Virtualization actually is and as it turns out it means alot of different things.
"Virtualization is a chameleon concept one common denominator
it's about breaking the bond with physical reality so you can do more," Hattar said.
Hattar noted that Cisco itself has recognized real benefit from virtualizing its data center. For example they are now getting 68 percent storage utilization up from only 20 percent in a purely physical environment..
"That's why virtualization is exciting because the benefits are so significant."
