Fujitsu Siemens Computers and Cisco Systems have announced a technology collaboration to boost what they say is an ongoing enterprise trend of integration between networking and datacentre management.
Effective immediately, the two IT giants have agreed to work together on delivering combined datacentre products. Through bringing together core network, server, applications and storage components, the agreement is designed to offer simplified integrated solutions and additional economic efficiency within Cisco's Dynamic Data Centre environment.
The fruits of the partnership are designed to assist large enterprises. Cisco says it will provide switches so that Fujitsu Siemens can deliver greater flexibility and reliability for core datacentre components. Furthermore, Cisco claims that the integration will provide large enterprise customers with increased agility and continuity in the way they deploy computing resources, delivering greater business efficiency to meet ever more demanding service levels.
