July 21st marks eight years since Brocade® Communications agreed to buy Foundry® Networks. Since then the name Foundry® and the Foundry® logo have disappeared from the networking landscape. Industry intelligence sources tells us that there are still hundreds if not thousands of customers world-wide that continue to use Foundry® products.
If your company is one of them you are likely evaluating these three options:
- “Go Commando” – Doing your own maintenance is never a good idea.
- “Rip & Replace” – Replacing all your legacy Foundry equipment with new products is expensive and not necessary when it is still working.
- Third Party Maintenance – Find an experienced 3rd party maintenance provider who can provide top quality Foundry® support at 80% below manufacturer’s pricing.
We’d like to introduce you to TeamKCI, America’s leading maintenance provider, for comprehensive Foundry® networking support. If you’re concerned about continued support for Foundry® products we may have the right answer for you.
