I was given the opportunity to walk around the expo floor at Interop NY 2011 today before I spent some time working in the booth, speaking with customers, and presenting in our theater on the show floor. There were many good conversations around the value proposition of UCS, the magic of service profiles (UCS Manager) to drive automation into server management and reduce operator time spent on tedious configuration chores, the new Nexus 7009, and Cisco’s Virtualized Multi-Tenant Data Center (VMDC) solution design for private and service provider clouds.
Here’s a quick video showing the booth very busy right after the 10:30AM opening of the show floor and a couple of interviews with attendees and bloggers Matthew Norwood (@matthewnorwood) and Andrew von Nagy (@revolutionwifi) about what they are looking for at Interop.
Follow along on twitter @ciscoDC and on the Cisco Data Center blog for updates from both Interop NY and Oracle OpenWorld from San Francisco. For details on sessions and demos, check out the Interop New York 2011 Cisco event page.
