Anybody heard of the Cisco UCS announcement this week.

Cisco made an announcement this week to enter the blade server market with a new product code named "California". Anybody hear of it?? Well, HP did loud and strong, so you may hear a lot from HP regarding this new Cisco strategy. And I would not say that the response has been friendly and complimentary. Here are a couple of non-HP blogs that share some of HP's stance. http://weblog.infoworld.com/venezia/archives/021221.html http://blogs.zdnet.com/storage/?p=427 http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/03/17/cisco_california_details/ Let me know if you need to hear the HP side or go to our "EyeonBlades" blog site to get more detail. http://www.communities.hp.com/online/blogs/eyeonblades/default.aspx

We've been evaluating them for a while, not a bad version 1.0 product but they need another revision before they're really production ready. Also it's not a great time to introduce a new, expensive, high-end product aimed at corporates.
