Cisco Expands UCS Cloud Menu by Including Microsoft Azure Stack

This integration eases the life of IT managers and application developers to deploy, manage, and grow enterprise applications more easily and efficiently.

GreatResponder Cisco announced on during the last week in San Jose, California that the company is expanding its hybrid cloud menu by Integrating the Microsoft Azure Stack into its UCS (Unified Computing System). It enables organizations to offer Azure services from their on-premise data centers. This alliance with Cisco and Microsoft helps enterprises to modernize and grow their application solution using various tools offered by Microsoft. It will also help developers to make the applications highly flexible, and scalable hybrid cloud environment.

Cisco Systems, Inc is a one of the leading industry, especially in the field of network hardware and telecommunication equipment. Cisco is also working on different IT based technologies such as cloud computing, network security, and IoT (Internet of things). These all technologies are managed by Cisco’s subsidiaries: Cisco Jasper, Cisco Meraki, and CloudLock.

Liz Centoni, senior vice president and general manager, Computing Systems Product Group, Cisco said, “Cisco and Microsoft are coming together to offer a hybrid cloud solution built on the power of UCS and Microsoft Azure, through our joint engineering efforts, application developers and IT managers will have a turnkey solution that is easy to deploy, manage and scale.”

As the businesses grow with respect to the changing in the market dynamics they always need some new things to include in their module. They want a very stable system that suit their business needs and such as user friendly, flexible enough to optimize resources and scale on-demand.

Here is the list of some key benefits of Microsoft Azure Stack that are now available on Cisco Unified Computing System such as accelerated growth and innovation, Industry leading fabric based UCS architecture, simple to manage and control, and increase confidence and trust.

Cisco stated that the Microsoft Azure Stack integrated system on Unified Computing System is targeted for availability in Q3 of 2017.

ABB Corporation Joins Hands with Microsoft to Benefit from Cloud Power

ABB Corporation introduces its new centralized software platform ABB – Ability trademark that connects customers and provide single cloud-computing platform.

GreatResponder ABB is a Switzerland based company, it is one of the leading technology company. Mainly products that’s for the company is famous are robotics, power and automation solutions. It has secured the position of 286th in the Fortune Global 500 list in the year of 2016.

ABB Company has rebounded this year by focusing on the growing rate of digital services. It has also prepared itself to take the advantage from the industrial internet of things (IoT).

ABB is offering its new digital services under its new brand named as ‘ABB Ability’. ABB Ability solution has an alliance with the Microsoft to offer a single cloud computing platform for its cloud customers and there will be also offering a new post for chief digital officer.

In the past since the company launched it has been better known for its product such as providing electricity grids and despite of new activist investments they are going to spin this division off, but even it remains the core activity of the company.

The company is developing the new digital services that will capture the data from the connected nodes of devices, the company analyses the captured data and also use it to “close the loop” by improving the industrial process.

The instance of remote monitoring of an industrial system, while a device connected to the internet has been installed, now it can report back its condition to the virtual control room and the response of the system has been preserved for a while any fault might occur.

ABB is hoping to replace the analogue system with the new digital system gradually in the future.

Dai Richard said “The problem of balancing supply and demand and controlling frequency is going to be a massive, massive area.”
