The Wedge, and Juniper’s version of it (named the “OCX1100″), is designed to work with lots of open source software, too. People can program it with a common language like Python. It works with popular open source management tools from Chef and Puppet Labs.
Looking at the Wedge Hardware Design it looks like a UCS Blade. RealWorldUCS thinks their is no stopping the Wedge idea and open source SDN’s. BUT Cisco UCS could be a 100% player if they jump into integration with Wedge Architecture. You heard it here first, look for “UCS Wedge” as a supported architecture in the near future.
In the world of UCS an ideal that will go far towards success is “If you cannot beat them, Integrate them”.
