The days of having x86 servers by Intel or AMD running business apps on one side of the data center and specialized network chips by Cisco, Juniper, or Brocade running networking apps on the other are numbered. That’s according to Brocade CEO Lloyd Carney, who believes x86 servers will replace most if not all specialized networking hardware in data centers of the future.

“Ten years from now, in a traditional data center, it’ll all be x86-based machines,” he says. “They will be running your business apps in virtual machines, your networking apps in virtual machines, but it’ll all be x86-based.”
