Recently, I posted a new TechRepublic article about the new Cisco Nexus 1000v. While you cannot even purchase this product yet, I truly believe that it will change the way that virtual networks are administered. Even better, for network admins, it will put the power of network administration back in the hands of the network administrators.
The new Cisco Nexus 1000v virtual switch will integrate with the next version of VMware ESX Server, due out in early 2009.
