Cisco’s Data Center megalaunch is probably old news by now. They announced numerous new Nexus products, linecards for Catalyst 6500 (will that box ever retire?), UCS servers, tons of FCoE-related features and few extra goodies I’m most interested in (LISP and MPLS/VPN on Nexus 7000). Scott Lowe and Chad Sakac already wrote extensive reviews of the new products and features, so I’d just like to say: Congratulations! Well done! Keep surprising me with good news ;)
