At Cisco Data Center, we recognize that our community of partners is a critical sales success factor. – So the annual event Partner Summit, this year in San Diego California April 16-19 is a big deal!
In fact, the physical event in San Diego is already sold out, demonstrating clearly the dynamism of the Cisco partner community, which is more and more attracted to the Cisco Business proposition, the solutions and now the services opportunities.
But to make sure that every partner can benefit from this opportunity , the summit will come this year to you live via Virtual Partner Summit (VPS). All you have to do is register. Here is my list of the must watch data center sessions -
General Session with Keith Goodwin, John Chambers, Edison Peres
General Session with Edison Peres and Padmasree Warrior

Having said that, there are a lot of other sessions, that you probably will find of a great interest!

Cisco has taken a leadership role in driving the industry on the creation of standards associated with IPv6. At recent count we had over 458 RFCs related to IPv6 – over a third of the total!
One example of this is how our technical leaders have taken on the challenge in dual stack (IPv4 and IPv6) networks to reduce user-noticeable delays in when the IPv6 path is broken or slow. We’ve documented a method called “Happy Eyeballs” as described in Internet-Draft “Happy Eyeballs: Trending Towards Success (IPv6 and SCTP”).
