Cisco @ VMware Partner Exchange 2011

While there’s a ton of coverage of Cisco Live London this week, including Daily Blogger TechMinute (Day 1, Day 2) with coverage from Didier and Lisa, the Cisco Data Center goodness for February doesn’t end this week.

As a Diamond Sponsor, we’ll be in full force at VMware Partner Exchange 2011 (Orlando, FL) next week. If you’re a Cisco partner at the event, we really want to talk to you about some of the amazing things we’re doing around server virtualization, I/O virtualization, network virtualization, virtualized security, virtualized application acceleration, virtual desktops (VDI) and collaboration (VXI), and fabric consolidation. All of the things that you’ll need to building incredibly flexible, efficient, integrated VMware virtualization environments for your customers.

So where can you find Cisco next week?

February 2, 2011 at 5:46 pm PST

A lot of activities today at Cisco Live London 2011 with probably more than 5000 participants. In the World of Solutions, the Cisco Data Center of the Future was packed with a constant flow of visitors.

On my side, after Computacenter and Logicalis yesterday , I got to meet another interesting UCS partner NextiraOne. I plan to post very soon the video interviews made with these partners -- Stay tuned

The end of the day was the perfect  time to have another Daily Techminute with this time the participation of Mark Musselman from BMC, and Simon Seagrave from EMC , who joined Lisa Caywood to discuss the growing interest for Unified Computing and an integrated solution such as Vblock

I met also John Manville, SVP Data Center and Network  for Cisco IT, who shared with me the major points he will discuss tomorrow in his speaking session -- Obviously Cisco IT is deploying very interesting solutions to move VMs between data centers, and I deeply encourage you to attend this session if you are in London
If not, please visit the Cisco Live Virtual website -- I will have also very soon the 3mn video interview made today with John Manville and NetApp.
