Take a Network Break! This week we dive into a giant pool of Cisco news, including a new hyperconverged product line, two acquisitions, a new supervisor for the Catalyst, and more.
We also take a peak at VMware’s announcement of an intercontinental VM migration, and check in on more executive departures.
IBM continues to monetize its ludicrously big patent portfolio by going after Groupon, which doesn’t bode well for other startups.
Finally, HPE teases us about its own hyperconverged product and a “game-changing” new server technology called Persistent Memory.
Join the Packet Pushers at Interop Las Vegas for the Future of Networking Summit, May 2- 3. It’s a deep dive into the technologies and trends that will affect the next five to ten years of networking.
