Data Center Consolidation Quick Thought

1. EMC acquiring Isilon, HP/Dell fighting over 3par. It is probably safe to say that there is a consolidation happening at the storage level.
2. Avaya, Brocade, Cisco, Enterasys, Juniper all announcing data center networking/fabric solutions – each one upping the other.
3. Virtualization creating greater concerns and opportunities each day in the security industry.

Is it safe to say that the accelerated pace of consolidation we are seeing at the storage level will begin to take hold at the Data Center Networking level and/or at the Security level?
