We are a solution provider and Cisco FabricPath is one of the networking infrastructure products that we implement for our customers. This product is well suited to the needs of telecom. We are currently working on a project involving multiple data centers that are spread across India. It is used by ISPs for switching servers to their internal connectivity at the branch level. Essentially, it is working as a layer of redundancy in terms of switching.

If clients want to avoid STP in their environment, which is usually the case with data center environments, and they want to use an active path, or have multiple paths going to the same resource. If they want to use them both, they use FabricPath. The solution is only supported on Nexus platforms, however. Users should aware of what they're using in the data center.

We are a technical services company and this is one of the solutions that we use to support our clients. We provide a hybrid cloud for our customers, so we have four data centers and we have implemented Cisco FabricPath ourselves. We provide managed services for infrastructure, storage, Wi-Fi, etc. FabricPath is used in the network infrastructure of our hybrid cloud.

The pricing could be lower, which would make it easier to sell to clients. Cisco has an entire product line and a setup team, which looks at the marketing and how to position the product, and I believe they do take this into consideration when launching and pricing their products. That said, it would be helpful if the product was more competitive in the pricing category.
