Enterprise IT is in the midst of a historic shift – moving away from piecing together standalone products in favor of data centers built around pre-validated solutions with reference architectures. This transition will be a key topic of discussion at Cisco’s annual IT and communications conference, Cisco Live, which runs from June 23 through 27 in Orlando, Florida. It promises be a great event, showcasing Cisco and its partners, and Nimble Storage is excited to be there to show off all the hard work we have done together. Nimble Storage SmartStack Solutions

Nimble has partnered with Cisco to bring to market the Nimble Storage SmartStack, an integrated solution including best-of-breed storage, servers, networking, and virtualization technology. Working closely together, Cisco and Nimble have jointly produced reference architectures that have been tested for interoperability, performance, and fast deployment.

Cisco and Nimble pre-validated SmartStack solutions have also been developed in collaboration with Citrix, VMware, and Microsoft to address both desktop virtualization, and server virtualization for private cloud deployments. Storage is not purchased in silos, so we’ve developed reference architectures with the key industry-leading ecosystem partners to provide a complete range of solutions.Cisco Live Microsite
