Maker of routers, Cisco is trying hard to make something else and has decided that it will be a damn fine idea to push itself into the server market in the Spring. Analysts say that when Cisco's gear hits the shos it could cause huge competitive reactions from both IBM and HP.
Cisco said its servers will optimise virtualisation software and be a new, potentially disruptive class of hardware and software management systems that span an entire data centre. The new servers will hit the shops in March apparently.
The story has been kicking around for a while but so far no date for these new servers has been announced.
