Cisco and HP Break Up, No Longer Service Partners

The writting was on the wall back in March when Cisco announced it's blade server but failed to partner with IBM or HP on them, instead going with Accenture. At the time I thought it was a terrible idea, and still do for the most part. I believe over 75% of Cisco's business was done through their partner channels and a huge chunk of that was through IBM and HP offering their servers with Cisco switches as a package. It sure seems to have had little to no affect on HP over the past year and I'm sure QLogic is thrilled with Cisco now that they've pushed HP into their laps.

This is going to backfire on Cisco. Bad.
