November 05, 2012 07:59 PMBrocade is buying Vyatta, which makes a software router. The move puts Brocade squarely into the virtual networking space, with implications for its SDN strategy, security and more.

Within the networking world, however, open source routers have made nominal in roads into enterprise markets. There are different reasons for the lack of adoption, mostly reflecting that routing is less about features and cost within businesses today and more about Cisco's dominance.
