Telecom Lead Team:
Cisco announced that its new
Cisco Unified Computing System has made over 10,000 customers worldwide,
including 3,000 in Europe.


Since it began
shipping in July 2009, UCS has captured 53 industry benchmark performance
world records, and garnered a dozen industry awards for innovation, the
company said in an official release.

among server vendors in vision, technical innovation, product performance, and
sales force.


Over 30
billion kilowatt hours of energy per year could be saved by replacing aging
traditional servers and support infrastructure through unified computing and
virtualization in the data center. This equals the energy output of 15 U.S.
coal-fired electric plants and 35 million tons of CO2.

Monsanto, a
global provider of agricultural technology, Euronet Worldwide, The Chinese
University of Hong Kong, AudienceView Ticketing and Boston University Medical Center
are some of the major customers, who have deployed Cisco’s UCS.
