First there was the great alliance between Cisco, VMware and EMC and now there’s a littler, less trumpeted triumvirate made up of Cisco, VMware and EMC rival NetApp assembled in the name of virtual and cloud security. It means they’ll have some recommended, pre-tested, and validated end-to-end configurations that they’ll promote as their so-called Secure Multi-tenancy Design Architecture (SMDA) – basically blueprints, implementation tips and best practices – that they all support globally 24×7 to get the enterprise virtualized faster.

At VMWorld in August, Savvis unveiled its not-so-secret Project Spirit, the company’s platform for enterprise-class Infrastructure-as-a-Service virtual computing services.  In December, they announced Cisco’s UCS (Unified Computing System)  as the platform for Spirit, and introduced Symphony – the range of Cloud offerings including Project Spriit.  Savvis calls the Spirit portion of this portfolio a Virtual Private Data Center (VPDC).  Effectively the service offers infrastructure as a service (compute, storage and more) as a service to a large number of customers through a simple web interface.

cloudCisco is mentioned as a key strategic partner in helping Savvis create this service.  Savvis uses many elements of Cisco’s Unified Service Delivery (USD) solution, including the UCS for compute nodes, Nexus  and Catalyst switches including Application Control Engine and  Firewall Services Modules for data-center networking, and a Cisco-powered IP NGN network interconnecting their data centers.

Of course, we’re very proud that we’re providing the infrastructure solution.  But that wasn’t what I meant by the title to this post.

What’s exciting to me is the fact that cloud computing is moving from the hobby shop to the production floor, and service providers are beginning to offer world-class cloud offers to their customers.

The Savvis offering is distinct from other IaaS offers in several ways, but in my opinion, the most important is the fact that Savvis Symphony VPDC includes the types of features that enterprises will require if Cloud Computing is to become a staple element of every business.
