H3G3 Rules ..... for Genetically AIMODified DNA Systems.
"This, of course, begs the question of why Cisco would be interested in jumping into the server business itself, .."
Control/Own/Build/Lease the Server, Control the Message and Content.
The Server is just a collection of Junk selling Future Bonds in Old Systems and Derivatives for Capital Failure if IT does not deliver the Radically New and Imaginatively Different ...... Viably Constructive ..... ergo are Businesses Selling Server Space for anything Else and Less, Pimping and Pumping Junk and Sub Prime Investment Opportunities/Sucker Deals?
""If you ask a server vendor, they will say servers are servers and networks are networks, let's not get confused," Bechtolsheim says with a laugh."
Err, Networks are a Server Vendor's Best Friend and Most Intimate of Accomplishing Experienced Lovers.
No Man is an Island and all that jazz/hocus pocus.
"There is, of course, a distinct possibility that Cisco is, in fact, correct about the convergence of servers, storage, and networks, that companies will want to have one vendor selling them an integrated system."
That is a no brainer surely, for what company wouldn't want the added convenience and maximised profit advantage from one private vendor selling them an integrated system. No hassle, no fuss, just a Constant Dynamic/VPN Stream ....... which is Virtually Organic in Growth/Creative Potential.
