On Channel And Media Perceptions Of Cisco vs. HP
"It's a bit of clash of the giants, and that's something that gets people's interest. Do you guys make too big a deal of it? I don't know, because you have to think about that in the context of your business. For us, competition is a great thing. We love competition. HP has clearly declared its intent to be a broad-based competitor to Cisco in the space. Competition makes us better. It's about having a very clear message that we will compete with HP, but we'll focus on the needs of our customers and align with the needs of where we see significant market inflection points. We think that's the right approach. That's what we want to stay focused on, but we recognize is certainly is a topic of interest these days."
