by | Jan 20, 2021 | Podcast

If the acronym “API” excites you, the phrase “software-defined infrastructure” tickles your fancy, or if skating to where the puck is going is your MO…

On this special episode of Data Center Therapy, Matt “Utica Rules” Yette welcomes another fellow Upstate New Yorker into the virtual studio: long-time Cisco System Architect Dave Nentarz. Dave and Matt first talk about regional cuisine, football, and of course Dave’s background. The episode then unfolds discussing what’s coming down the pike in the future from Cisco across networking, hyper-converged and computing solutions.

On this episode, you’ll get to hear about:

  • Why folks initially balked at Cisco UCS, and later came to both adopt and copy its unique method of handling server identities.
  • How the UI command-and-control tools changed over the eras, from requiring Java and then Flash, to eventually implementing fast, lightweight HTML5.
  • The tools that evolved to manage Cisco environments both in a single data center and then across large, multi-site enterprise environments including the ultimate addition to that tool family, Cisco Intersight.
