Cisco and Microsoft announced a multi-year agreement aimed at modernizing data centers.

The firms will invest in sales, marketing and engineering resources to drive global alignment, while delivering technology integration across cloud and data center markets.

The companies said they will focus on technologies, including Cisco Unified Computing System, Cisco Nexus switching and Microsoft Cloud OS solutions including Windows Server, System Center, SQL Server and Microsoft Azure.

The three-year go-to-market plan is said to be focused on transforming data centers through the delivery of integrated solutions for enterprise customers and service providers.

In year one, the companies will focus on six countries—the US, Canada, UK, Germany, France, and Australia—with expansion to additional countries in the following years.

Cisco and Microsoft will align partner incentive programs and sales teams will work together on cloud and data center opportunities, including an initial program focused on the migration of Windows 2003 customers to Windows 2012 R2 on the Cisco UCS platform.
