Cisco C-Series Rack Server Revealed
Cisco have announced the C-Series of UCS rack mount servers but until now no one has seen any, publicly. Well at Cisco Networkers in Brisbane Australia you can get a look at one on the Alphawest stand in the World of Solutions hall.
Of course if you can't wait, or if you can't make it to Brisbane, I took a very quick and unprepared video which is below (if you can't see it visit the http://rodos.haywood.org/).
Thanks to the executives in the Cisco SAV BU who allowed us to show this on our stand, you guys rock! Thanks to the local Cisco team in Australia who got it here. Thanks to our marketing team who did an great job of creating a secure glass case for it to live in and hence stop people stealing bits, especially as its fully loaded with RAM.
See you on the show floor as well as the session I am speaking in, "UCS : Opportunities, Objectives and Outcomes (ITMPCS-6500)" which is on Tuesday at 1:45pm to 2:30pm, where I will share my early insights from deploying one of the first UCS implementations.
P.S. A rare reminder. Contrary to the tone of this post, this is my person blog and any statements, or announcements here are not official in anyway and I do not represent my employer, they and I will deny anything. Check for press releases at http://www.alphawest.com.au/ for anything official.
