summit_logo_170The open hybrid-cloud and big data are at the center of the IT transformation that will enable every business, country, and city to become a digital and technology organization. Cisco and Red Hat share a common vision for the future of IT. That’s why Cisco is going big at the Red Hat Summit, which kicks off June 23rd in Boston. It’s going to be a great week of conversations with IT professionals who are harnessing open source innovation across their businesses and organizations to deliver new models of IT.

I’m especially looking forward to the opening general session with Red Hat CEO, Jim Whitehurst and Satinder Sethi Cisco VP of Data Center and Cloud Solutions. I’m sure these two industry luminaries will have keen insights into the market transitions and IT innovations that put the data center at the heart of digital transformation.

Of course, the Cisco team will be busy with an action packed agenda of sessions and demos. Plan to make the Cisco booth your hub in the Red Hat Summit Partner Pavilion. Our mini-theater will feature non-stop tech talks that span OpenStack, Group Based Policy, Big Data and Developer Programs. Every visitor to the Cisco booth will leave with an ultra-cool Cisco hat.

If you’re attending Red Hat Summit, you’re already lucky. So take advantage of that luck to win the best prizes at the event. We’ll be raffling off a Roku Stick after every tech talk in our mini-theater. We’ll also have a daily raffle for a Go Pro camera. Post a selfie with your Cisco hat and you can win a pair of Beats headphones.

Keynotes, sessions, prizes. Fun, right? Wait, there’s more! As the Premier Sponsor of Red Hat Summit, we’re pleased to present the Red Hat Summit party on Thursday, June 25 at the Museum of Science Boston. There will be great food, awesome music and you. See you there!

Ok, it can’t be all fun and prizes. You’ll leave Red Hat Summit with the latest information on Cisco and Red Hat solutions to modernize your data center and transform your business. Check out these videos for a sneak peak of the solutions we’ll be talking about in Boston.
