Submission + - Ask Slashdot: Enterprise-grade linux networking hardware. (

An anonymous reader writes: In spite of linux's great networking capabilities, there seems to be a shortage of suitable hardware for building an enterprise-grade networking platform. I've had success on smaller projects with the Soekris offerings but they are suboptimal for large-scale deployment due to their single-board non-redundant design (eg., single power supply, lack of backup 'controller'). What is the closest thing to a modular linux-capable platform with some level of hardware redundancy and substantial bus/backplane throughput?
