HP Partner Take

"Cisco entered the market aggressively, but I think HP made some really great decisions in altering their technology to compete more aggressively with Cisco," said David Cote, president of Versatile Communications, a Marlboro, Mass.-based solution provider and HP partner.

Cote pointed at HP's Gen9 servers as better provisioned for a cloud consumption environment, compared with its Gen8 servers. HP also gives customers choice, he said, such as with its enhanced Cloudline servers and "high-performance" Apollo products.

"These are products that give the customers a choice, and that's why we're excited," said Cote. "Cisco is going to have a hard time coming up with an answer to all of that -- not to mention largely because they're worried about losing market share on their networking side as well."
