Q&A: Cisco’s Dave Malik on New Nexus Switches and Trading Fabric…
I’d like to see what performance benefits would be gained if the softwareset on the nexus would be trimmed down to only what is needed for trading apps?
Indifferent, it’s a marketing based proposition IMHO and no more than that.
Interestingly I also observe the slight of hand in the interview of first talking about N3K and then switching to N2K FEX. So which one is recommended for a Cisco Trading Fabric – it cannot be both. What characteristic of N5K makes it a good platform for a Trading Architecture, perhaps I am missing something. Can we also define what Cisco mean when they talk of a Fabric i.e. characteristics and scale?
NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!
