Brocade/McDATA Merge Approved

The Brocade purchase of McDATA has been approved by both shareholders. The expected completion of the merger is 29 January.

I'm interested to see the merged product lines and how BrocDATA intends to support both product sets (especially the director class devices). There will be a lot of customers out there looking to see what bridging technology the merged company will produce and how the roadmap will look.

Whatever happens, Mc-cade needs to come out with something quickly or Cisco will be in and mercilessly stealing their market share.
