HP Takes On Cisco

Well now the fat is in the fire. A ticked-off HP is coming out against Cisco with both guns blazing. It claims it’s been working for years on the kind of all-in-one compute-storage-network-fabric-power-and-cooling convergence that Cisco says it has. HP says it’s had such a thing in mind ever since it started its adaptive infrastructure initiative. So naturally it claims that what it’s got is better than anything Cisco, a veritable server neophyte, can field and that its widgetry will “fundamentally change the way technology is used to deliver business services” while cutting infrastructure costs and data center complexity. (Where have we heard this before?) It calls the stuff Matrix and says it will automate data center processes complements of a Matrix Orchestration Environment (MOE), basically a console that can do template-based provisioning, consolidation, rec...

Cloud Enables a Win-Win on Both Sides of the Business

"I believe it is incumbent on the Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) and/or System Integrators (SIs) to understand the regulatory and compliance-related issues that their customers face," noted Manjula Talreja, VP of Global Cloud Business Development at Cisco, in this exclusive Q&A with Cloud Expo Conference Chair Jeremy Geelan. "Of course these issues are different in each industry and in each country." Cloud Computing Journal: The move to cloud isn't about saving money, it is about saving time - agree or disagree? Manjula Talreja: Putting aside the old adage that "time is money," Cisco agrees that cloud is more about creating efficiencies in business processes. This is true for the cloud consumers (to take advantage of new technologies more quickly and with maximum flexibility and to tap into pay-as-you grow business models where they pay only for what they consume). ...

Is Big Data Good for The Internet of Things?

If you happened to be in attendance at CES (Consumers Electronic Show) 2014 in Las Vegas, you might have picked up some information about the Internet of Things. It seems, to our ears, the Internet of Things has gone from a small and interesting topic of conversation at Cloud trade shows, to an industry with the potential the change the way the world functions. Point in case, as overheard at CES2014: We have to say, that is a pretty bold prediction. “The Internet of Everything will be five to ten times more impactful in the next decade than the entire Internet has been to date.” We suppose coming from John Chambers, the CEO of Cisco, we have to put some weight behind the prediction. Yet, we still have to wonder, will the Internet of Things – the Internet of Everything – turn out to be all it can be? Or will the Internet of Things turn out to be another industry wh... (more)

Cisco Needs to Buy EMC to Own VMware

http://twitter.com/fuatkircaali Cisco's January sales were down 20% from a year ago. Its customers are holding off their purchasing decisions under the current economic climate. The only growth potential the company has today is in the virtualization market, which is expected to increase by more than 40% in 2009. Cisco is not exactly a software company. Like Dell they need to come up with a sustainable proposition for their customers. So far what we have seen from Cisco is a virtual router. The word on the street is that next week they are expected to announce their game plan, perhaps a virtualization product and solutions portfolio in partnership with VMware. Cisco owns 2% of VMware. The big chunk of VMware is owned by its parent EMC. The only meaningful way for Cisco to get a sizable chunk of the Virtualization market in the long run would be through acquiring EMC.... (more)
