We Have a Winner

So Brian Cantor won my little uptime contest. Brian dug up a C5K that has been up for over 3,450 days. Brian says

“I work for an insurance company and this particular switch serves as an access switch in one of our call centers. It has mostly end users but there are some printers and a couple of servers. As far as I can tell, this switch has been chugging away since before the new millennium.”

Congrats Brian--fleece en route.Omar

  1. Congartulations Brian!BTW, I wonder if the switches of today can undergo such rigor? Meaning staying up for almost 10 years is no casual accomplishment. Especially given the complexity of IOS based switches, I would be surprised if you found a Catalyst 6500 staying up for a similar span of time.Prakash
