What would you say are the growth opportunities for partners in the data center?

They're almost endless. Every place they're leaning in, from storage when you look at it, we're seeing a lot of non-volatile storage get deployed, which causes people to rethink the way that they might virtualize storage. If you think of mainframe storage, you think of big legacy [storage area networks], and the reality is, those are getting converted to virtualized storage, which is now non-volatile memory increasingly on individual server nodes, and it's just getting virtualized across multiple nodes. Same way for compute coverage-wise. Think about switching and routing, legacy switching and routing. It's now turning to virtualized switching and routing. Our partners are looking at that and saying, 'OK, how can I get in there and sell into those companies, those accounts that are virtualizing their compute, their networking, their storage all together?"
