5 thoughts on “What Do PayPal and Cisco Have in Common?”

  1. The link you provide to the Cisco outage has a date stamp of Aug 9, 2007. Is this the link you wanted to reference?

    1. Further, this is a black eye – Cisco of all companies should have had redundancy so that an alternate data center should have kicked in using any number of products it itself manufactures. Own dog food and insert other metaphors here…

  2. I wonder which vendor’s network equipment experienced a failure at PayPal. That must have been one heck of a hardware failure affecting multiple devices, with the assumption that they would have implemented a highly redundant/fault-tolerant infrastructure.
