0:09 switches with 12-month lead times that's

0:12 no longer the exception

0:13 that's the rule

0:15 it's impossible to predict when hardware

0:17 will arrive

0:18 for now and honestly for the foreseeable

0:21 future

0:22 so let's see we've got delayed equipment

0:25 costly impacts on quality of service and

0:47 no more being at the mercy of one vendor

0:49 choose who you want based on your

0:51 business and your technological needs or

0:53 based on who can deliver the hardware

0:56 first ahead of time configuration have

1:00 all your data center configured and

1:02 pre-staged before the hardware makes it

1:04 to your doorstep get your precious time

1:06 back
