Interesting that they use OpenStack internally but are looking to roll out the proprietary OpFlex to customers.

Re: Cisco CIO
It really is interesting to get a peek inside a big tech company and hear about their internal challenges. I can only imagine the kinds of workarounds that network engineers on the product development side of the house could cook up on the internal network.

Cisco CIO
Nice piece, Drew. I find it really fascinating that even Cisco faces a lot of the same challenges that "normal" IT organizations face -- too few staff, grappling with open source, etc. Clearly they are early adopters, but it's an indication of how complex technology is that even the biggest tech manufacturers have similar issues to their customers. At least they can understand some of the challenges.
