Beaver Bait

Heya, people. Sorry I've been AWOL for so long my "day job" has been makin' me nuttier than a vodka-fortified Liza Minelli lately. Fortunately, I was able to do some nibbling on the latest storage networking gossip between stress-induced blackouts. Dig it, you damn storage nerds!

Dear Bob the Beaver,

I've heard that EMC Corp. (NYSE: EMC) has been running into issues with the Cisco Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: CSCO) MDS 9000 switches. Supposedly, EMC is very unhappy and is demanding that all the Cisco field units be replaced – around 70 total. What is the skinny, O Rodent of SAN Secrets?
