Omar then claims that Cisco is delivering network resource virtualization with: "VDCs in the Nexus." "VLANs across the Catalyst family." "VSANs in the MDS family." "L4-7 service virtualization in products like ACE and the Firewall Service Module." "VBS switch virtualization in our next-gen blade switches." "Heck, even the new ASR is running KVM.
