Following up on my previous posting here, it appears that the rumblings over Cisco producing a server offering shortly (maybe as early as March 09) are getting louder. This server offering will almost most likely take the form of blade servers running some form (most likely VMware based (ESX?)) of virtualization software .
This will obviously start stepping on some of Cisco’s long term partners such as heavy hitters HP, Dell and IBM. Cisco are very well placed for bringing such a server product to market especially with the significant trend towards using virtualization technologies in the datacentre.
