It's the Conference shuffle. #MMS2012 seems like yesterday, well maybe a few weeks ago, back to Las Vegas and the Venetian Conference Center for #EMCWorld 2012. Bigger and better than
ever... that's really the only way to describe EMC World 2012. From the Keynote
to the closing concert (Maroon-5) just Bigger and Better!!
There is just so much to cover, and Microsoft Teched 2012 is NEXT WEEK!!!. EMC MEGA Launch II introducing 42 new or updated products!! Most of which touch Microsoft application in some
way; AppSync for Microsoft Application Protection, VFCache, the PCIe and soon Cisco UCS Blade based IO Accelerator card providing Performance, Protection and Intelligence.
I ran into Adrian Simays and Brian Henderson, both friends of the show, in the EMC Bloggers Lounge. I couldn't let an opportunity like that slip buy without firing up the webcam. I was able to track down Adrian on the second day as well; you can find the podcast here. On day one of the conference I also visited the Leveraging EMC VFCache with Enterprise Applications breakout session. In true Inside the Partnership fashion I was able to get an interview with Radha Manga and a quick introduction to EMC VFCache.
EMCs Microsoft Solutions team had over 50 demos running in the solutions pavilion showcasing EMC products and technologies enabling Microsoft Applications. As always Adrian and his team where all over the show!
A press release during EMC world highlighted the latest VFCache form factor and Cisco UCS Blade
support. I spent some time with Brian Sorby of the EMC Flash Business Unit to review that announcement.
Then I took a sneak peak at Microsoft TechEd, after all... It's NEXT WEEK!!! Wow what a turnaround. Look for me at Teched!! Ask me about VFCache and get a Cache Gordon USB Drive!!!
Inside the Partnership Episode #30 had just about nothing
to do with EMC and any partnership.... As promised it's additional footage from
the EMCWorld 2012 Customer Appreciation event and Maroon 5 concert. Hope you like it!!!
