The Future of the Fabric Interconnect
FIs are the command center for the Cisco UCS platform. Acting as a switch, FIs connect servers to the network and storage within the data center. While the next generation of FIs are faster and provide new features, the biggest advancement is the introduction of Intersight Mode. This mode moves all the capabilities of UCS Manager to Cisco Intersight for a full featured management platform in the cloud. What do we think is the overall future of the FI? Do we see FIs as an advantage or liability?
