IBM Begins Hawking the Cisco Nexus 4000 Blade Switch

A week or so back, Cisco announced the availability of the Nexus 4000–an FCoE switchdesigned to fit in other vendor racks.  The Nexus 4000 heralded great benefits, not the least of which included the promise of extending the unified fabric to a host of new platforms.  There was only one problem with the otherwise stellar announcement: We neglected to tell you who would be selling the product.

Well, as reported in El Reg today, the first of those partners, IBM, has begun selling the Nexus 4000 (expect more vendors to follow suit).  And, as Kash points out on his excellent blog you can find the Nexus 4000 blade switch IBM description at:
