Seems that Tech Field Day and SDN Central are planning a Software-Defined Datacenter Symposium that will September 10th at the Network Meeting Center at Techmart in Santa Clara, CA.
The event should be appropriate for anyone interested in OpenFlow, software-defined networking (SDN), software-defined storage, convergence, and private/public/hybrid cloud.
So if you are into OpenStack, CloudStack, VMware, Microsoft Private Cloud, AWS, or any of the other major cloud and platform players you will likely find something useful at the event. The nice part is that Stephen Foskett slipped me a discount code for getting a bit off from the list price for the event (because he is nice guy and a fellow Microsoft MVP!)
I will be attending myself so I hope to see some of my colleagues who are actively involved with OpenStack and the Microsoft Cloud arena attending. We can banter back and forth about what might happen in the future for our industry. The event is being sponsored by Embrane, NEC, NuageNetworks, Nutanix and Plexxi. I would not be surprised to see more jump on board as Stephen hosts top notch events and the topic is timely and relevant to what is happening in the industry.
