Server Administrators need visibility into networking details, particularly when using Nexus 1000V. The vCenter plug-in is a software application that will be integrated fully into the vCenter server and will help admins gain a concise view of the virtual network. This plug-in is a GUI-based interface which will export the necessary network information from the Nexus 1000V virtual supervisor module (VSM), so that the administrator has the ability to view the network topology, root cause issues and deploy virtual machines with the appropriate Quality of Service and security policies.
Back with the demo is Uday Gokurn from the Nexus 1000V product management team…
In this week’s episode of Engineers Unplugged, NetApp’s Nick Howell (@that1guynick) walks through the basics of data protection with Cisco’s Marcus Phipps (@mmphipps). More than ones and zeroes, it’s applications. Follow along here:
Welcome to Engineers Unplugged, where technologists talk to each other the way they know best, with a whiteboard. The rules are simple:

Increased innovation in virtualization, compute and networking technology is steadily increasing the growth and adoption of VDI. Many enterprises are extending VDI deployments to their remote offices and branches but many are also apprehensive of running VDI across the WAN link due to concerns that a single point of failure could disrupt the entire business at a remote location. Similarly, small and medium businesses (SMBs) are exploring VDI. For them to adopt VDI the offered solution needs to be simple, reliable, and able to incorporate other business needs like office communications, PCI compliance, business continuity, etc. They prefer solutions that provide a healthy TCO and can also be deployed and managed easily.
If you’d like to learn more about the evolution of the data center, and how Cisco is supporting that mission, it’s a great time to be in Barcelona. VMworld Barcelona kicks off full force today, and there is a great deal to experience.
Here’s a quick overview of Cisco’s presence in Barcelona in booth D200 and beyond.
