Focus on Energy – No Flash in the Pan

It is really good to see such long term, focused attention being given to energy issues. We have done multiple shows on ‘Green’ subjects over the last few seasons: Network Energy Efficiency with a great pre-launch dig into the Cisco EnergyWise additions to IOS as well as a show focused on the mother of energy consumption for many companies -- the data center. This is where we first met Rob Aldrich, a fantastically passionate advocate for efficiency who maintains some great entries at our Cisco Green Blog. Be sure to give it a look. The reason for today’s post however is to bring your attention to our latest podcast featuring an old friend of the show, Ramesh Bijor. Ramesh was all over Jimmy Ray again this year at CiscoLive to make sure we got a good look at his Cisco EnergyWise demo. The concepts are simple to digest I think but profound in their long term outlook. Jimmy Ray does a good job as usual of digging behind the initial veneer of the technology:We both have good memories of working with Ramesh..my first introduction to him was also in a Green demo he was doing on the Embedded Event Manager’s ability to control quite a few things:We have quite a few video podcasts that will continue to trickle out every Thursday -- I hope you are following our YouTube channel (youtube.com/ciscoCIN) at the very least…our official podcast channel is on the Cisco servers...you can access all of these (audio and video) here. As for the big show -- we have a BUNCH of changes as we gear up with new crew, new producer, new set and hopefully a new style and set of technology hosts that you will find rewarding. More on this in future posts. No new shows in August -- our next big show will be September 3 and focus on some behind the scenes advice to Cisco Certifications. Many of you may see yourselves on this one as we taped it all at CiscoLive this year. Let us know what you want to keep seeing! Thank you for watching.Robb
