Hey all - Looking for some un-biased feedback; and I will get it here. :)

As an alternative to a ToR design within our data center, I've been
asked to consider the HP Flexfabric product with an integrated Cisco
Nexus 2K built into it. I'm not a fan of converged infrastructure as
this, but the reduction in cable management and cost is attractive.

However, I'd love to know if anyone has deployed such a solution and
if so, how has it impacted (good or bad) your day to day operations
and provisioning? Architecturally, it makes sense to consider
convergence when the opportunity arises, but I'm not 100% sold on this
