Old Man of the Datacenter

I’d been thinking about how the ubiquity of Catalyst 6500 was impressive in many ways (always been there for me, etc.), but also how it prevents a lot of new technology adoption, such as FCoE, Fabric Path/TRILL, etc. because it doesn’t support them. And today I heard that there’s a new supervisor module for the Cat6K. On an episode of Packet Pushers, I’d heard the Cat6K referred to by Ethan as the “Old Man of the Datacenter”. So I hit up some Photoshop (or rather, GIMP), and voila.
