But LINX, Equinix, and other exchanges have been very stable on Foundry
running both layer 2 and layer 3 code images. So I don't think all the
blame falls on Foundry. I think a rigorous hardware/software support plan,
aggressive management of vendor support, sufficient test lab, and
conservative upgrade process are just as essential to stability.
Of course what I really want for Xmas is a Force10 box ;-)
