Yesterday I had the opportunity to sit down with a panel comprised of the following folks here at Cisco Live! First off, my thanks to Friea Berg (@friea) for creating this opportunity. Events like Cisco Live are a great venue, but pulling together a group of industry peers to have a meaningful dialog around the challenges our mutual customers face, and how we can better serve them is something that magnifies the impact of these events.

So here we are, Monday at Cisco Live… Most likely you cut your weekend short to get here on time, or… you fought some insane TSA line-ups and a full-body x-ray scan this morning to squeeze onto an oversold flight.

This is shaping up to be another great outing – as a number of my peers have already highlighted, there is an endless buffet-line of learning opportunities while you’re spending the week with us in Vegas. This year marks the entrance of the Virtualization Experience Infrastructure (VXI) into the Cisco Live realm, and with it comes my favorite part – the opportunity to meet with customers from across the globe who are coming to this event, armed with the objective of getting the info they need to help get their desktop virtualization initiatives off the ground.

Last week Cisco, VMware, and NetApp published a very detailed CVD deployment guide to further simplify and accelerate the deployments of Enhanced Secure Multi-Tenancy (ESMT) solution on FlexPod for VMware. ESMT is a key FlexPod add-on feature that allows secure hosting and protection of virtualized data centers for multiple tenants on the same, shared FlexPod infrastructure. Availability, Secure Separation, Service Assurance, and Management are the key foundational pillars of the ESMT architecture. Each of these pillars is enabled by innovative technologies from Cisco, NetApp, and VMware.

According to Mashable, today is Social Media Day. Whether or not you think that social media should have its own day (#smday), a group of us, Silicon Valley practitioners thought we’d have some fun today anyway…social media style. We created 2 videos to celebrate the lessons we have learned over the years and remind ourselves of the effects social media has had on our lives….so far. I say “so far” because there’s more to come. If you’re new to social media, we hope you’ll walk away with some good conversation starters. If you’ve been doing this for a while, we hope to put a smile on your face – maybe because you recognize your own advice or maybe because you have a similar story.
