Welcome to my inaugural post as a member of the Cisco analyst relations team. I’ve recetnly joined Cisco from Sun, and I couldn’t be more excited to be working on a host of familiar yet exciting topics like Unified Computing, Nexus networking and FCoE.
Today, I’d like to share a recent Cisco TV recording that discusses Cisco’s datacenter strategy:
I found this video super helpful as I come up to speed. Aside from Cisco execs discussing the benefits made possible by a unified fabric for the datacenter, it also spotlights a customer from the University of Arizona who is realizing these benefits thanks to his decision to implement Fibre Channel over Ethernet.
Still need more reason to tune it? The video features a surprise product announcement in the form of the Nexus 4000. Blammo! You’ll be hearing more from us (and our partners!) about the Nexus 4000 in the coming days and weeks, but it in a nutshell it extends the unified fabric to the mass blade market, and it represents the next step toward a complete, end-to-end unified fabric.
So give it a watch and let us know what you think.
