Cisco markets faster switch for cloud computing

Cisco Systems has introduced Nexus 7000, a new network switch for companies burdened with rapidly growing Internet data transfers and the increased use of applications that draw on remote data storage, known as cloud computing.

The switch will provide a sharp increase in traffic capacity over the company’s current products — to 15 trillion bits of data a second. To illustrate speed, the switch could transfer all 90,000 Netflix movies in 38.4 seconds or send a two-megapixel digital image to every human being on earth in 28 minutes.

The switch line represents about one-third of the company’s $35 billion business. It has required about $1 billion in research and development costs and the efforts of more than 500 engineers in the last four years.
