Q&A with John McCool on Virtualization in the Network
Jim Duffy from Network World just posted a solid interview with John McCool, our SVP of the Data Center Technology Group here at Cisco. (I sorta work for John so be nice on the comments, okay?) but this is a really good snapshot synopsis of how we are approaching optimizing the network for future broader deployments of virtualization, especially some of the advanced capabilities virtualization technologies enable such as disaster recovery, VM portability/mobility, and VM segmentation. John also gives some good leading indicators as to how our network platforms are evolving and what the future holds for key investments such as our Catalyst 6500 Series and Cisco Nexus Family of Data Center switches.
