This article discusses IBM, Amazon, Yahoo!, Cisco, and BMC Software. The goal is to spark a useful discussion. What is your opinion of these companies? Do they have viable strategies for the future?

I usually compare Cisco with the servers division from HP. HP servers are the best I have worked with, but are more expensive and so we are starting to buy from their competitors, that have also increased their quality. Cisco is facing great competition from the likes of Juniper or A10: they're way cheaper and the products are not bad at all.

I'm not a networking guy at all, so take what I write with a grain of salt, but I personally love working with Juniper. Junos is really just a commercial fork of FreeBSD.
