The Golden Gate Bridge. Cable cars. These images immediately come to mind when we think of San Francisco. If you’re in the IT industry, however, San Francisco is all about Oracle OpenWorld (#OOW15) which kicks off on Oct 25th. Whether you’re attending #OOW15 in person or not, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to learn how Cisco UCS delivers record-breaking performance and exceptional ROI for your Oracle workloads.

You won’t be able to miss the Cisco booth (#801) as you enter the Moscone South Hall. Apart from our prime location, we plan on standing out with a full schedule of tech talks in our theater, live video interviews with industry leaders and great conversation with Oracle experts from Cisco.

We’re pleased to once again host our friends at theCUBE (+ Silicon Angle and Wikibon) who will be streaming video interviews throughout #OOW15 directly from the Cisco booth. We have a great line up of thought leaders, Cisco, Oracle and partner executives and customers, who will be sharing their insights on today’s and future trends in the Oracle ecosystem. TheCUBE will begin broadcasting on Monday, October 26th at 10 AM, U.S. Pacific Time. Tune in at http://siliconangle.tv/oow-15-cisco/.

We also have a non-stop line-up of tech talks scheduled in the theater in our booth. You’ll hear directly from Cisco and partner experts on Cisco UCS integrated solutions for Oracle workloads. We know you’ll come for the knowledge but who doesn’t want to have the opportunity to win a prize? We’ll be raffling off a set of urBeats by Dr. Dre earbuds after each session. If you’re not attending #OOW15 in person, you can still catch all of the Cisco tech talks. I’ll be streaming each session from my account on Periscope. Follow me @gserda to catch all the action.

Even if you don’t win a theater raffle prize, you won’t leave the Cisco booth empty handed. Everyone who completes a short survey will get one of our famous Cisco UCS hats. You’ll also be entered into a daily raffle for a Surface Pro 3 Tablet. Feeling extra lucky? Post a selfie with your ultra-cool hat for an additional opportunity to win a set of Beats by Dr. Dre Headphones. Get all the details at the Cisco registration desk.

Whether you attend in person or join us online, we’re looking forward to connecting. Make sure to follow us on Twitter or Facebook. Also follow the Cisco team for live updates from #OOW15: @gserda, @BMNYNY, @ReeshaDedhia,

See you next week!
