Show 12 – Insieme and the Nexus 9000

For Show 12 we had the privilege of sitting down for an early look at Insieme’s new hardware and Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI). Joe Onisick lays out exactly what Insieme’s been doing and the hardware they have coming out. We also haveĀ James Bowling on the show to provide us with the perspective of the server and virtualization admin.
