Cisco is unwrapping two new technologies that it sees enabling a more flexible enterprise data center, along with a number of new networking product enhancements.
It’s all part of Cisco’s burgeoning vision for the enterprise as being enabled by a unified fabric, unified computing and, now, network services. Enterprise Networking Planet takes a look at the latest addition to that plan, Cisco’s Unified Network Services, and its two new offerings in the area, a virtual security gateway and Virtual Wide-Area Application Services.
Networking giant Cisco today is unveiling two components of what it positions as a new architectural approach for delivering virtual network services across an enterprise IT infrastructure.
Called Cisco Unified Network Services, the new offerings join Cisco’s (NASDAQ: CSCO) existing efforts to improve the flexibility and manageability of increasingly complex enterprise data center networks: unified fabric, which melds Fibre Channel and Ethernet, and the Unified Computing System (UCS), a server system.
