The Cisco UCS Advantage Series

April 7th, 2011 (updated May 6th, 2011)

I love a box of chocolates for one simple reason – it provides a variety of bite-sized samples.  I get to taste several small samples and quickly determine which ones interest me and which ones don’t.  Well, why not package technical product discussions the same way?  I mean, why not provide several time-sized sample discussions of the technical advantages of a product or solution and let the consumer quickly determine which ones interest them or not?

Allow me to introduce you to the first round of the “Cisco UCS Advantage Series”…or, as I refer to it, a box of UCS chocolates.  This series was developed by Cisco to give our customers a quick sampling of just a few of the technical advantages of Cisco’s Unified Computing System solution.  Go on…sample a few.  They’re low calorie.

Special recognition to Dan Hanson (@danhanso) and his team of exceptional UCS engineers for producing this series.
