CiscoLive! Europe is the first major technology conference of 2014. It will be starting on 1/27. Jim Ruddy and I will be representing the EMC Office of the CTO (OCTO) to preview EMC technologies and solutions. In addition we will be hosting a couple of meet-ups at our show floor booth. Jim Sanzone has been keeping our preparation on track over the last few weeks.

EMC is a diamond sponsor of Cisco Live! Europe this year and we will have major presence on show floor. As we have in the past we will have a number of customer conversation stations with several of our most requested topics.


The EMC Office of the CTO will be previewing new and enhanced products. We will also be previewing some of the new solutions we have been working on in Open Innovations Lab. The Tech Previews material is focused on four areas of 2014 focus for EMC:

  • EMC products like ScaleiO, ViPR, VPLEX, and SMARTS
  • EMC Solutions with our infrastructure partners Cisco,  VMware, VCE, and Puppetlabs
  • EMC Solutions with Big Data Analytics partners including Splunk, Rainstor, Pivotal, Hortonworks, Cloudera, and Apache
  • EMC Openstack Strategy Update

Over the next few weeks I will be previewing a number of these solutions on this blog. Our Cisco Live! vPass is active on the EMC Community network at: Be sure to register to get the latest EMC schedule updates and access EMC Featured content.

This promises to be a great event and perfect kickoff to 2014 partnership with Cisco and our mutual partners. Let me know if you are planning to attend and would like to meet.
