Virtual Networking/Nexus 1000v Virtual Switch Blogger Roundtable/WebEx Logistics – March 2nd.
About a year before I started working at the Jolly Green Giant (Cisco) I had a rather loud and addictive hobby that was focused on proving that Cisco would offer a “third party” virtual switch for VMware environments. This sort of unhealthy fascination also dovetailed with another related to “Project California” which later became the UCS (Unified Computing System.) Both are now something I talk about in my day job quite a bit.
So I don’t normally directly blog about specific work-related stuff here, but I’m going to make a quasi-exception.
The PM’s from our SAVBU (Server and Virtualization Business Unit) who own the Nexus 1000v and UCS product lines asked me if I’d get together a bunch of bloggers, analysts, end users, pundits, crusaders, super heroes, networking and security geeks and have a discussion about virtual networking — specifically the 1000v.
Of course they ask me to do this on the first day of the RSA Security Conference. At 9am. In the morning. Nice.
They didn’t tell me what they wanted me to say because honestly I think they want to see just how flustered the group above can get me…
So here’s the addy to the WebEx: https://ciscosales.webex.com/ciscosales/onstage/g.php?t=p&d=203474089
The event starts at 9am PST and I’ve got a room that can hold 8 people physically (or so I’m told) in our building across the street from Moscone at 201 3rd Street, San Francisco. If you plan to attend physically, the first 8 folks can meet me downstairs at the Chevy’s Mexican restaurant and we’ll go up at 8:30 SHARP. Otherwise, dial-in and have a good time.
It’s scheduled for an hour.
Talk/see you then. With the folks that have already said they’d participate, it ought to be fun. No, you don’t have to be a fanboy.
