That is the 'new reality'

The whole premise of the OCP/ONIE switching market is that the horsepower and switching chips found inside these industry standard designs, when coupled with an operating system that uses it properly, can run circles around most everything else. Put it all together and you see a robust 'server' coupled with a wirespeed switching plane. Companies like ours were founded to unleash this era of commoditized platform, and have offered 'server'-like services inside the switching fabric itself for years.
