Our First Virtual Event: Next Generation Networking

On November 12th, we will be hosting our first virtual event covering next generation networking. You can register here. We have a great line-up of speakers, including a keynote by  Rob Roy, CEO of Switch Communications, which runs the SuperNAP in Las Vegas. The rest of the day includes presentations on key networking topics delivered by IT practitioners and experts as well as sponsors. I've seen the presentations, and like what I see.
Naturally, I am biased. Still, if you are interested in the topics Network Computing is delivering, like converged networking, WAN optimization integrating virtual and physical networks, and in hearing the insights offered by people who have had their hands on the technology or are considering it for their own IT shops, this is something you don't want to miss.

Peppered throughout the day are presentations by the show sponsors that not only shed light on the direction vendors are taking, but which also provide insights into features and uses of their products that aren't necessarily apparent. It's also a good time to get your questions answered, or at least to collect some new ones for the next vendor meeting.

The event takes place in a virtual environment where you can visit vendor booths, interact with them and  grab white papers and other literature. There is also a lounge where you can talk with other attendees and staff. It's a good way to meet and talk with peers.

So come on by! We'd love to hear your comments on what you liked, or didn't, and any other thoughts you might like to share about this virtual event.
