IBM reversed course on networking in 2010 when it acquired Blade Network Technologies, one of its key network suppliers. Network World Editor in Chief John Dix and Managing Editor Jim Duffy recently caught up with Vikram Mehta, founder of BNT and now vice president of IBM System Networking, for an update on IBM's network visions going forward.
IBM divested its network business in 1999 and acquired BNT in 2010, so interesting question. As enterprises have increased their reliance on IT to run their business the amount of infrastructure has gone through the roof. And what customers have come to realize is that, given the scale and the pace at which they need to deploy infrastructure, the old model of build your own using best of breed servers, best of breed storage and best of breed networking, just became untenable.
