After, chatting with other cohorts in the industry (namelyGreg Ferro aka Ethereal Mind and of PacketPushers fame, Stephen Foskett of Tech Field Day fame and also writer of his own blog, and Ivan Pepelnjak who, amongst other things, writes an excellent blog on networking topics), its clear that trying to stay up to speed with all the various happenings in going on in the data center is pretty near impossible because of the sheer volume of information and the signal-to-noise radio that sometimes gets out of hand.
While all of us, in our own little ways are doing our piece to help address this through blogging, white papers, seminars and the like, we wanted to try something a little different to really dig into some of the more complex topics and came up with the concept of Virtual Symposiums:
Focused discussion on a single topic
Panel discussion with industry experts (or at least folks that believe themselves to be experts)
Focus on helping attendees understand the “how” and “why” of different technologies as opposed to advocating a particular perspective
Interactive, open to audience interaction--the goal is to get your questions answered
Our first symposium, next Tuesday, is going to cover storage convergence. We are going to spend approxiamtely the first half of the symposium discussing the storage options out their: FC, FCoE, and iSCSI and when we think each one makes sense (or not). As I noted above, the goal is to not push a particular technology agenda, but to educate you, and let you make your own decisions. The balance of the session is open for Q&A--we will cove some of the common questions that we see all the time, but we expect you, the audience, to drive a lot of the discussion.
So, mark you calendar and join us--if you are familiar with this crew, you know it will be both educational and entertaining.
This particular session will be delivered via WebEx on Tuesday, March 27 from 9am-12pm Pacific Time.
