Is Brocade's SilkWorm Losing the Thread?: Page 3 of 3

The forum aims to ensure interoperability between products, which could be bad news for Brocade because it makes it easier for competitors like Qlogic to displace Brocade equipment -- and that not only eats into its market share but also drives down its potential profit margins.

Of course, Brocade wouldn't want to say such a thing in public. It's also keeping quiet about possible delivery delays of its SilkWorm 12000 switch. At press time, it hadn't responded to requests for clarification.
