Are you happy with Cisco's position now with Dell-EMC looming? What's your vision for Cisco's storage strategy looking down the line?

As it relates to storage, I've said all along that our partnership strategy has worked. VCE continues to grow, our customers are quite happy with it. We've seen great success with FlexPod [with NetApp]. We've actually seen a lot of traction with IBM with VersaStack. So our commitment is still to these partnerships because I believe that's what our customers would like to see us do. At any point in the future if the customer feedback is that we need to do something differently, then we'll take that assessment and look at it. But right now I think we're very pleased and the partnership model seems to be working.
