Huge congratulations to Cisco for achieving number 1 in the x86 blade server market in only 5 Years since launch.
According to the latest IDC worldwide quarterly Server Tracker (2014 Q1) Cisco UCS which turned 5 years old this year has hit the number one spot for x86 Server market share in Americas and No.2 worldwide.
To go from zero to No.1 in only 5 years from a standing start is an awesome achievement, and a real credit to all those involved.
In the 5 years that I have been SME for Cisco UCS, I have seen this traction first hand and still get a great buzz from seeing the lights switch on when people “get it”
This latest news only gets me more excited about Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) as many of the same great minds that bought us Cisco UCS developed Cisco ACI.
