Behind The Scenes At Westcon's Cisco UCS LEAP Center


LEAP Before You Look (At UCS)

Westcon Group's new LEAP Center provides IT solution providers the opportunity to get hands-on training and accreditation with Cisco's UCS platform, and lets them bring customers in to see how UCS might work in their own data center environments.

"LEAP" is an acronym for Learn, Educate, Architect, and Plan, which describes the Center's primary functions, said George Fandos, vice president for the global data center business of Comstor, the group within Westcon focused primarily on Cisco distribution.

Fandos and Julie Hens, vice president of Cisco's Worldwide Partner Organization, officially cut the ribbon to the LEAP Center after a day of presentation on virtualization, cloud, and other trends.
