Facebook’s Open Compute network is limited, Cisco says

Facebook’s Open Compute project, which is working on open source servers and switches, will be limited by “weaknesses” in scope that Cisco can exploit, CEO John Chambers said this week. Check this article from PCWorld.com. In an exclusive interview with Network World when he also touched on the consumer market and EMC alliance, Chambers said efforts like Facebook’s to commoditize and wring cost out of hardware purchases will open up opportunities for Cisco to provide solutions that are better tailored to specific customer needs.
