    [EN] Cisco Kicks Off Manufacturing of UCS Servers in Brazil


    Cisco says it expects to become one of the main server suppliers in Brazil and Latin America.


    Cisco‘s manufacturing operation in Brazil has recently delivered its first Unified Computing System (UCS) servers. The San Jose, California-based vendor committed to investing over R$1 billion in Brazil over four years back in 2012, which included plans to expand local manufacturing in the country.

    “Expanding local output by manufacturing Cisco’s UCS servers in Brazil, alongside the Innovation Center in Rio de Janeiro and additional investments, reinforces our long-term commitment to the country,” said Rodrigo Dienstmann, president of Cisco in Brazil. “The UCS server has been an unprecedented global success for Cisco. By optimizing delivery schedules and with more market competitiveness, we expect the Cisco UCS to become the foundation of a wider adoption of cloud computing and convergent systems in Brazil, adding value and increasing productivity.”

    Where servers are built and how they are shipped around the world has relevance in light of recent revelations by Edward Snowden and The Guardian that the U.S. National Security Agency may have been tampering with IT gear exported from the U.S. allegedly to install “backdoor” surveillance devices. While Cisco’s investment plans in Brazil go back to a time long before the scandal, local production might mean more than just local economic benefit now that the information about potential NSA tampering has been released.

    Cisco CEO John Chambers was vocal about the issue. In a letter to President Barack Obama earlier this month, he wrote that the practice might lead to “a fragmented Internet, where the promise of the next Internet is never fully realized.”

    The company is starting local production of blade and rack servers from the UCS family, a converged infrastructure stack that combines computing, networks, management, virtualization and storage access into a single integrated architecture. Launched in 2009, UCS took networking company Cisco to second place in the blade segment rankings.

    Brazil is the main battleground for cloud in South America. Cisco is investing heavily in making sure it has market share in the emerging market. The two main reasons the company decided to manufacture UCS locally was Brazil’s increasing adoption of cloud computing and rising demand on the part of Brazilian companies for efficient data center solutions. As local manufacturing expands, Cisco says it expects to become one of the main server suppliers in Brazil and Latin America.

    As part of its investment plan, Cisco also committed to opening of an innovation center in Rio de Janeiro and investing in a Brazil-focused ICT and digital economy venture capital fund. The company also plans to strike intellectual property agreements and partnerships with Brazilian companies and entities to collaborate on innovation.

    PRESS RELEASE Cisco Announces the Manufacturing of UCS Servers in Brazil

    Local manufacturing increases product availability and market competitiveness while reinforcing Cisco long-term commitment to the country

    São Paulo, Brazil, May 27, 2014 - Cisco today announced the delivery of the first Cisco UCS® (Unified Computing System) server manufactured in Brazil. The company is starting the production of blade and rack servers of the UCS family, the system that unifies computing, networks, management, virtualization and storage access into a single integrated architecture. As part of Cisco® Brazilian investment plan announced in 2012, which includes the expansion of local manufacturing, the UCS production reinforces the company's long-term commitment to the country, allowing it to better serve the needs of the Brazilian market and increase product availability and competitiveness.

    Launched in 2009, Cisco UCS revolutionized the server market taking Cisco – the largest networking company in the world – to second place in the blade segment rankings. Because of its exclusive architecture, this is the only platform to offer simplified server, management and control in both physical and virtual environments, as well as the ability to accelerate ongoing migration to cloud computing with fabric-based infrastructure. According to the IDC Worldwide Quarterly Server Tracker, from February 2014, Cisco now has a 32 percent share of the US server market and is one of the five biggest players in the overall supplier ranking.

    The main advantage of the Cisco UCS is its programmable infrastructure, which simplifies application and service deployment at a corporate level. With unified management based on service policies and profiles, it is as quick to configure hundreds of servers as it is to configure just one, and with much lower cost of ownership. Cisco's investment in an integrated architecture has turned the UCS model into one of the leading products on the global market as a base system for the growing trend towards cloud computing.

    Cloud computing in Brazil

    Two important factors in Cisco's decision to manufacture the UCS locally were also Brazil's increasing adoption of cloud computing and rising demand from Brazilian companies for efficient data center solutions, as they seek to reduce costs and delivery times. Cisco sees a great potential in all areas of the industry because the platform can handle a range of situations, from creating and automation of private clouds to market solutions from external service providers. As local manufacturing expands, the company expects to become one of the main server suppliers in Brazil and Latin America, helping clients make the most of their technology.

    In addition to its versatility, Cisco UCS has been designed to meet the business requirements of organizations of any size – from small and medium-size companies to major corporations, as well as a range of public sector companies. Cisco has many specialized partners in this technology and is ready to build a strong market position for the UCS in Brazil. Manufacturing in Brazil will also improve customer support and accelerate the use of converged systems in the country.

    Cisco, Dimension Data partner to accelerate cloud adoption

    IT services provider Dimension Data and Cisco have expanded their 23-year partnership, with plans to accelerate and streamline hybrid cloud adoption globally.

    Announcement of the partnership expansion coincides with Dimension Data’s other announcement today that three new global cloud data centres will go live to address the ongoing demand for enterprise-class cloud services in Toronto, Auckland and next month in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

    Under the expanded partnership, in which Dimension Data becomes Cisco’s first Global Intercloud Partner, Cisco will use Dimension Data’s Managed Cloud Platform and SaaS solutions to deliver a suite of mid-market centric cloud services to its customers and resellers. Dimension Data’s infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) solution will be packaged with Cisco technology and software-as-a-services (SaaS) applications, including Microsoft SQL Server and SharePoint.

    The Cisco validated and branded solutions will be sold by Cisco through its channel partner community.

    Announcement of the partnership expansion coincides with Dimension Data’s other announcement today that three new global cloud data centres will go live to address the ongoing demand for enterprise-class cloud services in Toronto, Auckland and next month in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

    Dimension Data CEO Brett Dawson said the company’s global cloud service is available via 10 Managed Cloud Platforms around the world, with plans to expand to 13 locations by September this year.

    “As a Cisco Intercloud partner, Dimension Data will evolve its Managed Cloud Platform to embrace Cisco’s Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) and Intercloud Fabric — the building blocks of the Cisco Cloud architecture,” Dawson said.

    “Over our 23 year relationship with Cisco, we have had many successes in the marketplace together and cloud is no exception. Dimension Data is proud to be the first global Intercloud partner.

    “We have been providing cloud services for many years and have developed a robust global cloud service – available across all continents. We are extremely excited to support Cisco and its partners in accelerating the market’s move to cloud services.”

    “Cloud is the latest frontier for innovation and growth in our remarkable 23-year journey with Dimension Data,” said Cisco President Development and Sales, Rob Lloyd.

    “Our customers are struggling to navigate the world of many clouds. We are excited to have Dimension Data bring the reach of their global cloud capabilities to our Intercloud ecosystem. By harnessing the unique capabilities of Application Centric Infrastructure and Intercloud Fabric, Cisco and Dimension Data will help our customers unlock the potential of the hybrid cloud — enabling the right cloud for the right workload, while creating strategic advantages for rapid innovation, and ultimately, business growth.”

    In March of this year, Cisco announced plan to build what it says is the world’s largest global Intercloud together with its partners to address customer requirements for a globally distributed, highly secure cloud platform capable of meeting the robust demands of the Internet of Everything.

    Designed for high-value application workloads, with real-time analytics and ‘near infinite’ scalability, Cisco says its open Intercloud allows local hosting options that enable data sovereignty.

    Announcing the ‘go live’ of new data centres, Dimension Data’s CEO ITaaS Business Unit Steve Nola, said the addition of the new Managed Cloud Platform (MCP) locations will bring to 13 the number of the company’s Public MCPs globally with multiple data centres in each of the Americas, EMEA, Asia Pacific and Australia regions.

    “Today’s announcement follows a number of recent significant milestones and achievements for Dimension Data in the cloud space. These include the acquisition of Teleris, a cloud-based visual communications service provider, our appointment as a SAP certified provider of cloud and hosting globally, as well as a Microsoft private cloud service provider on its cloud platform,” Nola said.

    ”Brazil, Canada, and New Zealand are significant new expansions to our MCP capacity and demonstrate acceleration in the pace of additional deployments. Adding seven new MCPs in just 12 months has almost doubled our footprint. Expanding to 13 MCP locations gives Dimension Data the largest enterprise-class cloud presence in the world, and is testament to increasing global demand from both new and existing clients.”

    Nola says all Dimension Data Public MCPs are enterprise-ready, offering multiple layers of security, administrative controls, 99.99% availability SLAs on Public Cloud, 24/7 phone support and integrated management capabilities.
