VMware's VMworld 2009 is next week in downtown San Francisco and I picked up an Expo pass (Solutions Exchange) to be able to drop in for a day to see all the exciting stuff happening in the virtualization world.
It looks like Cisco is going to have a huge showing at the event this year. There is a lot of buzz around UCS, Nexus 7000, 5000, 2000 and 1000v and the new Data Center 3.0 architecture. If you want to get your toes wet on some of the happenings with Cisco's involvement you should check out Colin McNamara's blog, he has been doing some great posts about all the happenings with UCS. Colin is also on twitter.
