Thread regarding Cisco Systems Inc. layoffs

RTP

tired of seeing all the trolls and everything regarding RTP. a lot of people read this site not knowing if things are trolls or not. With that being said, is RTP really closing and if so where was this announced and is it on Cisco's sites anywhere?

If you’re reading this, RTP has already closed.

No one is going back to the office for free.

@1cnn+1kZpbUd2, the power issues have gotten a lot better since we got rid of all the HP bare metal "pizza boxes" and switched to UCS racks and running lots of VMs on each rack instead of one per box.

The problem is more with space. They can't really consolidate and get rid of any buildings if they're bringing in 5 buildings worth of stuff from SJC. But, even if they do bring in 5 bldgs worth, the cost difference in real estate will pay for building upgrades to put in more lab / data center space and cooling to keep the # of buildings already in RTP.

buildings all being updated to drive better work experience and draw more people back to campus after the last several years of work from home.

That's not the word I'm hearing...they're updating the buildings to be more hybrid and collaborative-centric. They'll be more for data centers, labs, just enough desks for those who have to work primarily in the lab instead of remote connections to equipment in the lab(s), and some desks for those to work at before, after, or in-between meetings if they don't have a full day of on-site meetings. Otherwise, it's still work from home because it saves Cisco money to let you pay to heat and cool your home, pay for your own internet service, and utilities to run your monitor(s) and laptop. Not to mention buying your own desk and chair.

RTP is taking on a bunch of gear from San Jose. I heard through the grapevine that at least 5 buildings worth of gear is heading to the east coast. But RTP has a major power issue so I don't how much they can receive.

Chuck wants Atlanta to be the backup HQ for Cisco. He hails from that state, so it makes sense. Some RTP buildings have already been taken over by Amazon and Apple but they haven't moved in yet.

No RTP is not closing. It is being updated and consolidating down from 12 buildings. The final number is not in but it will be at least 6 or more buildings all being updated to drive better work experience and draw more people back to campus after the last several years of work from home. Atlanta is being updated as well but not replacing RTP at all.
