Chambers declares war on VMware
Cisco CEO John Chambers has declared war on VMware. In a recent call to the financial analysts he termed VMware “enemy number 1 for Cisco” and vowed to “crush” VMware’s software-defined networking (SDN) product, NSX, in the market, said Wikibon Principal Research Contributor Stuart Miniman in a discussion on theCUBE from IBM Edge this week (see video below). For users this means choice and competition in the market that they can leverage to get better deals and service from the vendors.
According to Business Insider, Chambers told a group of financial analysts recently that Cisco’s Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI), is already having a positive impact on CIO mindshare. He predicted that Cisco will take back the customers it has lost to VMware since its purchase of software-defined networking (SDN) pioneer Nicira a year ago and its subsequent introduction of NSX based on Nicira technology. Miniman said he heard the “enemy” quote from several sources.
