We know you’re interested in Cloud Computing because the “Data Center / Cloud” blog is one of the most popular here at Cisco.
We know you’re building efficient, scalable, automated Cloud Computing environments because we’ve seen the market-share growth in our Nexus and UCS product portfolios.
So why not bring together two things that you’re already passionate about for the opportunity for fame, fortune and a great opportunity to interact with more Data Center professionals looking to improve their skills, knowledge and ultimately their businesses? If you’re interested and have some unique ideass, go check out the “Conquering the Cloud” Challenge from the Open Data Center Alliance (ODCA). The ODCA is a consortium of the largest companies in the world focused on building better Data Centers, so you know the competition is going to generate some exciting ideas.
If you’re a Cisco customer building awesome Cloud Computing concepts for your business, let us know about it (in the comments, or directly to me [bgracely] [at] [cisco]). If you’re submitting your concept for the contest, let us know as well. [NOTE: ODCA is not vendor supported, only customers, so we won't be able to influence your entry other than to provide awesome technology to support it :)]
NOTE #2: We think we’ve done some pretty cool things internally at Cisco, but I know the caliber of our customers and I suspect you can do better. Are you up to the challenge?
