Take a look around your data center. What’s your favorite piece of equipment? Is there anything in there you’d miss if your infrastructure was changed overnight? We all have our favorites for different reasons. But the real question is, “Is there anything we’d change about our favorite device if given a chance?” Of course.
Technology changes—what once was new becomes outdated and is replaced by the next big thing. Progress marches on, and it’s only a matter of time before even your favorites are, regrettably, on the short list of items to be replaced. But that’s something Cisco would like to change. Specifically with their Nexus 7000 and 9000 series switches.
