Starting May 31, 2016, New Account Breakaway-UCS can now also apply to Cisco UCS customers who have not purchased the solution in the previous 8 fiscal quarters (two years). This offer gives partners a powerful profitability incentive to reactivate dormant Cisco UCS installed base accounts in addition to winning new Cisco UCS logos. The same NAB discounts apply in either case.
All other New Account Breakaway program rules and criteria still apply. The opportunity must be partner hunted and led. The Cisco account team cannot already be engaged in Cisco UCS discussions, and no other partners can already be involved.

Retirement of the Cisco UCS specialization requirement for Cisco UCS B-Series products
As of May 27, 2016, partner quoting and ordering for Cisco UCS B-Series products no longer requires holding the Advanced Unified Computing or Advanced Unified Data Center specializations.
However, these specializations will remain an important eligibility requirement for access to VIP rebates, and they can be used to fulfill Cisco certification partner requirements.
