July 9, 2011 - 0 Comments

If you don’t know VMware Wade Holmes, it’s about time – Wade is a vibrant, passionate, highly certified Technical Solution Architect in the Global Technology Solutions at VMware , I am pleased to have him today as a guest blogger.  

” With Cisco Live 2011 beginning Monday, July 11th, it seems like a good time to give a quick update on what to expect from VMware at the event.  “Your Cloud for the Human Network” enables customers to speed up their journey to the cloud and adopting virtual desktops to increase flexibility and agility for businesses.   And we’ve got a full slate of demos and theater sessions in our World of Solutions booth that highlight the integration between VMware and Cisco that make this real — across datacenter, networking, end-user computing, and cloud. We’ll have presentations every half hour during normal hours of the World of Solutions with VMware speakers covering a range of Cloud Infrastructure and Management, Cloud Applications, and End-user Computing topics.   Guest speakers will also join us to cover Vblock solutions, Cisco UCS Express for remote office and branch office as well as integration between Cisco Cloud Portal (formerly known as newScale Service Portal) and VMware vCloud Director.

We’ll feature demos with VMware vSphere, VMware View, and VMware vCloud Director as well as the latest VMware and Cisco VXI solutions with Cisco Unified Communications. Be sure to check out our Virtual Cisco Live session on Tuesday, July 13th at 11:00AM PST titled “Scale Your Cloud”, where we will discuss Cisco Cloud Portal and Tidal integration with vCloud Director. This event will also reveal details about our Cloud Infrastructure Launch, and highlight some of the great ongoing solution collaboration between VMware and Cisco. If security is of greater interest to you, stop by and check out how the Cisco Nexus 1000V integrates with VMware vSphere and can thwart a man in the middle attack.

Finally, don’t forget to attend the Vblock – Rock Solid Reference Architecture for VDI (BRK4424) session on Wednesday, July 14th at 4:00 PM. During this presentation Afonso Infante and Hang Long will cover the architectural details of Vblock for VDI with test results and observations and real world applications of the architecture.
We look forward to seeing you next week at Cisco Live.  Don’t forget to stop by and see us and learn about all of the latest and greatest solutions from VMware and Cisco are delivering to simplify and speed your journey to the cloud. ”  Wade
