vFabric: The next disruptive technology?
A VERY interesting post by Stephen Foskett discusses VMware’s lab efforts to develop a virtual fabric.
Cisco offers their Nexus 1000 Virtual Switch which integrates directly with the vSphere hypervisor. But what if VMware could create a rich virtual fabric infrastructure, that would allow 3rd party vendors to create their own virtual networking devices?
This is just in the R&D phase now, but it could be a very interesting development if successfully executed.
