This Sunday I'm leaving my home here in Austin TX and heading out to Las Vegas for Cisco Live!. Cisco Networkers (as us old-schoolers still lovingly refer to it) is without a doubt the best show in the world for network engineering, network administration, and network management. Anyone who works in these fields should be able to get a ton of value from attending and for those that can't make the trip to Vegas there is a virtual tradeshow that you can attend anywhere you have an internet connection - and it's FREE!

SolarWinds will have a strong presence at the show including a large booth with in-booth presentations and training, a presentation in the Cisco Theatre, and a breakout session on Tuesday morning. This year we'll not only be talking about network management but systems and applications management and storage and virtualization management as well. Our schedule is as follows:

What: SolarWinds Booth (in the middle near the Cisco Booth where it's easy to find)
When: Anytime the World of Solutions is Open
Details: The SolarWinds booth will be staffed the entire time and we'll be handing out geek geer, providing training, and doing demos.

What: SolarWinds Breakout Session - From Cloud to Virtualization to "Lean IT" - How to Successfully Navigate IT's Rising Technology Trends
When: Tuesday June 29th, 8:30-9:30 a.m. PST
Details: During this session we'll tell you what you need to know when dealing with public, private and hybrid clouds; virtualization; and lean IT environments

What: Cisco Theatre Presentation - 10 Minute Crash Course: What Next-Gen Technologies Mean to Your Network
When: Wednesday June 30, 12:00-12:15 p.m. PST
Details: During this session I'll be talking about Cisco IP SLA, NetFlow, the Nexus 1000v, and the ISR G2 and why they're important to you

It should be a great event and I hope to see all of you there!!!

Flame on...
