Cisco CWS and OpenDNS Data Center Locations

Cisco Cloud Web Security (CWS) and OpenDNS both provide cloud based security services. CWS offers an HTTP/HTTPS proxy and OpenDNS provides security and visibility at the DNS resolution layer. I’ve been asked many times where both CWS and OpenDNS host their services as this can make a big impact in end user experience if the hosting location is far away from the user and could lead to high latency and a lousy experience.

I regularly share useful links with customers and colleagues and often find that this page is a great starting point to explore some of the web tools Cisco has available

Some of these tools include the Cisco Power Calculator, Cisco Feature Navigator, Cisco IOS to NX-OS configuration converter, and many others. Give it a click and explore some tools you likely didn’t even know existed.
