CISCO

Welcome

Discover the benefits of attending our EMEA Bootcamp:


Server Virtualisation solutions help IT

  • Reducing equipment, facilities, and operating costs
  • Provisioning new applications quickly
  • Meeting high-availability service level agreement requirements
  • Coordinating management and operations across Virtualisation silos
  • Full Multi-Tenant capabilities for the whole infrastructure.

Desktop Virtualisation solutions help IT

  • Increase administrative control and data security
  • Provide a near-native end-user computing experience
  • Ease the migration to newer desktop operating systems
  • Regain control over desktop TCO

 

Cisco and their Data Centre and Virtualisation Technology partners would like to invite you to a new Bootcamp series across EMEA. Attend our forthcoming bootcamps to hear about the new Data Centre Virtualisation innovations and services, and learn about Cisco Data Centre business advantages.

One of the biggest issues that IT faces is overall responsiveness. Today, a request to provision an application can take weeks or months due to the silo'ed infrastructure, decision making and processes that exist within IT.

One of the challenges Virtualisation has created is the need to manage and orchestrate all of these VMs floating around the Data Centre and between Data Centres.

We developed this one-day Bootcamp event as a mix of theory and hands-on. Come and experience the solution in a real live scenario.


This one-day event is a split between theory and hands-on experience.
We offer two Bootcamp series : Virtualisation Server and Virtualisation Desktop

 

Register today. Limited seating available.

Server Virtualisation

VMware and Cisco will demonstrate how to design, architect, install and operate a very lean Virtualisation infrastructure based on Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS), VMware vSphere and Nexus 1000v. Such an environment allows you to consolidate mission critical servers on a fully virtualized infrastructure which allows achieving massive cost and power savings.

Join this event and gain more information on how your business may experience tremendous cost savings on capital and operational expenses with a virtualised Data Centre. These savings are achieved with powerful Unified Management System of UCS based on Intel chipset technology. Improve your service levels through the usage of Cisco Service Profiles and vSphere's vMotion and of course with VMware vSphere, the best platform for building cloud infrastructures. Cisco and VMware help you combine server, network, network services, security and storage Virtualisation under a single management pane with UCS Manager and vCenter.

During the morning you will learn the theoretical information necessary and in the afternoon you will get the opportunity to setup the complete environment on real physical hardware.


Desktop Virtualisation

The traditional approach to managing desktops in a global enterprise has become untenable. Increasingly, geographically dispersed user endpoints, in the form of desktop, laptop computers and personal devices, are making “desktop” management and security nearly impossible.

Cisco and their DCV Technology partners have to developed Desktop Virtualisation Solution, with a move towards user-centric computing. The next generation Data Centre will transform traditional stationary desktops into untethered stateless workspaces available from anywhere and at anytime, which is a carefully designed and lab validated solution for the


After a combined solution overview in the morning, you can build-up and configure yourself a very lean system architecture and solution design. You will experience how Desktop deployments will radically simplify architecture and reduce complexity by minimising the number of components that need to be purchased, powered, cooled, configured, managed, and secured. This can increase efficiencies by about one-third compared to other centralized and decentralised desktop solutions.

During the morning you will learn the theoretical information necessary and in the afternoon you will get the opportunity to setup the complete VDI environment on real physical hardware.
