Well, it’s official. HP is not going to be a Cisco gold partner any longer.
Given HP and Cisco’s very public competition, I can’t say this is any surprise. While HP certainly has contributed significant sales to Cisco in the past in the form of routing and switching equipment, HP has aggressively moved to position their own products in front of Cisco’s recently (and why wouldn’t they?).
Does anyone think this actually means much for the sales of either company, or more of a “yawn” type move?
