Iâ€™ve been hearing about Force10 Networks as a large scale ethernet switch provider for some time. Itâ€™s time to touch base and find out what they are doing. I spoke with Steve Garrison from Force10 to get an introduction to the company and their products. Iâ€™ll let the show speak for itself.
This week, we get a report about HP Tech Day, and then devote most of the show to answering questions sent in by you, the listener!
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 ? We donâ€™t think the Nexus switches are very exciting. Due to people commitments we recorded a double length show which will be released in two parts. This is Part 2 and Part 1 was released next weekend.
This is the first podcast from the Packet Pushers devoted to Wireless Networking.

SolarWinds Orion fanboy Ethan talks to the Head Geek at SolarWinds, Josh Stephens. The discussion is around Orion Network Performance Monitor v.10. If you havenâ€™t checked out Orion in a few years, itâ€™s all grown up now. Ethanâ€™s implementing Orion NPM and loving it, and had a nice chat with Josh about the core Orion features.
