From the ‘That’s a lot of machines’ files:
BOSTON. I’ve known for some time that Cisco runs and uses Linux. Until today though I had no idea how large that footprint was.
Speaking at the Red Hat Summit today, Ram Appalaraju, Vice President of Technology, Products and Solutions Engineering at Cisco told us all what the Cisco Linux footprint is.
Are you ready for it?
Drum roll please…
Cisco has over 10,000 RHEL instances.
That’s not Cisco customers, that’s Cisco’s own IT. That’s a non-trivial footprint. So not only is Cisco a big Red Hat partner, but they’re a big customer too.
