Cisco launched “Hosted Collaboration Solution,” that gives partners, including service providers and integrators, ability to deploy multiple collaboration applications on one server in a virtualized environment and then host those apps for multiple client organizations. The solution is designed to be run from partner data centers. The solution is optimized for delivery by Cisco Unified Computing System, part of Cisco Unified Service Delivery solution, that combines the power of datacenter with power of the network to transform service delivery and build foundation for cloud services.
And Cisco also bought networking company Core Optics for $99 million.
