The FEX: A bit more detail

- February 9, 2009 - 6 Comments

After our announcement of the Nexus 2000 Fabric Extender (FEX), Omar provided a nice overview of it in his January 28 post below. Based on some questions and comments that came back, we thought it might be useful to give a bit more detail via the video below. This allows you to see the FEX in action, so to speak, and illustrates the notion that the Fabric Extender, as its name implies, does indeed function as a remote extension of the Nexus 5000 fabric. Take a look (make sure you do it in full screen mode), and let us know what you think…

  1. I just thought I would comment on Craig's first post. This is a big step for Craig as a blogger, but an even smaller step for blogger-kind... Let's go ahead and embed that video in here to make it sing though!

  2. Speaking of anonymity, it appears 'fluffy' is toiling away in it. Nobody has commented on it, or cross referenced it...

  3. Craig- is it fair to not confuse the Nexus 2000 in your video with this one? was this the product launch?

  4. Y'all give him a break. I shudder to think anyone should be forced to follow the tsunami that is Gourlay's blog production...

  5. Craig:I was going to suggest you introduce yourself, but after Doug's lead-in, perhaps anonymity is better!
