Happy Holidays and 2010!

December 23, 2009

There have been so many people that have inspired and encouraged me that I’d like to be able to give a personal thank you to every one of you; since this is a bit difficult, I thought I would do even better and send you all a personal holiday greeting from the President of the United States – just click here.

Maybe it’s because I watched the holiday greeting from the President, but I’m very hopeful for 2010.  I’m looking forward to 2010, where one of my activities will be to bring information and people from EMC’s Innovation Network outside of the firewall where we can share and discuss with a broad audience. What are you looking forward to in 2010?  The Olympics?  The final space shuttle missions?

To get you ready for the new year, here’s a calendar widget from EMC’s thought leadership group which you can add it to your favorite site (click the “Get & Share” button):

Wishing you a happy and healthy holidays and new year!

Journey to the Virtualized Data Center: Virtualization and Networking Considerations

December 10, 2009

On December 15th and 16th, Cisco will be hosting a virtual trade show to highlight the Journey to the Virtualized Data Center.  Cisco has brought together 11 partners to share with you the best ways to solve the toughest data center challenges in networking, storage, applications, and physical infrastructure technologies.

Chris Carrier, Director of Marketing for EMC’s virtualization practice and I will be doing a Live Chat (Tuesday, December 15th, 1pm Eastern, 10am Pacific) from the EMC booth in the virtual trade show.  In addition to the top ten considerations for virtualization from Chris and the top ten considerations for networking from me, we look forward to answering your questions.

It’s been a busy year in both the networking and virtualization spaces; as we wrap up 2009, we hope you’ll take the opportunity to join us for this discussion.

For more on the conference, see Cisco’s Data Center Networks blog and register at the DCoF site.

If you are interested in continuing the discussion on storage networking, please consider subscribing to this blog.
