Re: well...
@mendyk, well said - the existing alternatives will not keep pace with the opportunities the future networking and virtualization offer.

As Mitch points out, having the vision is one thing, how they deploy this technology and deliver value through these changes will be another thing.  They have a steep learning curve in that their fundamentals on networking are about the capability rather than the value-added deliverables.

The cynic in me
re: "When you promote your cloud boss to a top-level executive position, in place of a longtime veteran, that's a sure sign that cloud is front-and-center in your strategic thinking."

As a cynical employment attorney, I would have just as easily assumed that the reasoning involved internal politics and/or wanting to replace older talent with someone younger and with lower salary demands.  ;)

Re: well...
The great thing about the cloud is it means everything and nothing at the same time. We're well into the Era of Virtual Reality, and there's no turning back.

Oh, well, good luck then. Cisco always banked on innovation but I am afraid it might be a tad too soon to bank just about everything on the cloud.
