In case you have missed the noise on my Twitter feed (@mrtugs) in the last couple of days, I’m currently at Networking Field Day 17 in Silicon Valley, and today (Friday, January 26) is the last day of presentations. So far this week, along with eleven other lucky delegates, we’ve been treated to presentations from Juniper, Thousand Eyes, Extreme Networks and VMware, including Velocloud from VMware. As usual, it has been a firehose of information and thankfully all the videos will be posted soon so I can go back and figure out what I might have missed.
The last two days of presentations have seen a very strong focus on automation, network fabric (including cloud connectivity) and hybrid cloud services. It’s uncanny how everything aligns, sometimes!
Today is the last day of NFD17 and we’re going to be starting at Cisco at 8AM PST, then after lunch we’re hearing from Mellanox, Ixia and Cumulus, all beginning at 1:30PM PST. We live stream all the presentations, so if you want to tune in and join us, pop over to the NFD17 site and the stream will be live on that page. If you are watching in real time and have a question you’d like answered, feel free to tweet with hashtag #NFD17 and we will try to ask the question on your behalf!
I am heading out now to see Juniper, so I hope you are able to join us on the stream, and to join the #NFD17 conversation on Twitter!
