The modern workplace continues to evolve, with demands for improved mobility, new bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and VDI initiatives, plus a need for an increasingly agile, productive and collaborative workforce. Deploying VDI at the branch or remote office has proven a challenge to most VDI adopters. Centralizing user desktops at the data center and having users access those desktops across the WAN results in poor user experience and WAN connectivity dependency for business continuity. Cisco® Office-in-a-Box consists of the award-winning Cisco Integrated Services Routers Generation 2 (ISR G2) platforms and the new Cisco UCS® E-Series Servers. With Cisco’s best in class network technology combined with a powerful enterprise grade compute platform in a single box Cisco delivers a way to easily collapse branch office or retail store IT services into a single box.
