Sun used to say The Network is the Computer. Cisco now states The Network as a Platform. In other words, why deploy another server or appliance if you can just run it on your Cisco router?
I am unsure how this will play out. I figure Cisco just wanted to add to the confusion caused by virtualization with their own take on consolidating platforms. At some point I see one giant box (labelled Skynet probably) with a massive antenna to which we all connect our dumb terminals via wireless.
I'd like to get a Cisco 2800 series ISR router to try this out... donations are welcome. :)
