A new paradigm of defensible, self monitoring and self diagnosing code will be required. I also believe we need a virtual internet for testing, but that's going to be the next big thing! Donal.

EHV = End Host Virtualiser
NPV/NPIV = N_Port Virtualisation / N_Port Identifier Virtualisation

This is a pretty good overview on "The Evolving Data Center from Cisco':
