A detailed look at the Big, Hot and Heavy Ethernet Switches with a large crew to talk about their practical experiences on design, selection and performance of Cisco Nexus switches. The result ?

In this show, we go off on the weekâ€™s more interesting news, and discover a bit of technology that Greg actually likes! (He went on so long, we blushed and had to look away.)
Dan is down with the flu, so Greg and Ethan bring Brandon Carroll on board to discuss the news of the week in an abbreviated program.
