SQL Server Reporting Services was co-installed with vCenter, so to prevent a conflict on TCP/80 the customer specified a custom HTTP port during vCenter installation. At this point we should have been conflict free on TCP/80 but as we soon found out, that was not the case.

Cisco announced their new Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) offering earlier today. It is based on their tried and proven UCS compute platform combined with their HX Data Platform software (an evolution of the Springpath relationship).
