IDC Business Value Brief: Cisco ACI

White Paper Published By: Cisco

Length:  11 pages

The pace of change facing Cisco's IT department is accelerating as new applications, particularly from cloud and mobile environments, become key business enablers. Cisco's IT department, which is responsible for 4,067 production applications and inspecting 27TB of data daily, must be able to deploy such applications quickly, securely, and cost-effectively and then make changes to them or remove them just as quickly and efficiently.

Cisco's IT department has chosen to address these challenges by transforming its datacenters through the deployment of a new architecture from Cisco that brings greater automation, programmability, and openness to its IT infrastructure. Cisco has already completed its initial deployment of Nexus 9000 Switches in preparation for deployment of Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) in datacenters hosting its key business applications.
