today introduced innovative new solutions that continue to help
customers realize the Cisco Data Center 3.0 vision for
next-generation data centers. The culmination of this is the
introduction of the network platform for Data Center 3.0, the Cisco
Nexus(R) Family of data-center-class switches, and the expansion of
the Cisco Catalyst(R) Family. This new infrastructure is the next
step in helping customers to design and build data center
architectures that meet the stringent operational continuity,
transport flexibility and scalability requirements of the
next-generation data center.

"With its Data Center 3.0 vision, Cisco is transforming the data
center into a virtualized environment that revolutionizes how
organizations adopt new IT strategies and respond quickly to changing
business needs," said Jayshree Ullal, senior vice president of
Cisco's Data Center, Switching and Services Group. "The Cisco Nexus
7000 Series is the result of significant and pioneering internal
innovation. Combined with the 10 Gigabit Ethernet portfolio that the
flagship Catalyst 6500 Series offers, Cisco provides customers with a
smooth migration into a new era of data center networking."
