PQ Show 010 – Cisco Virtual Symposium – Virtual Machine Networking – Sponsored

This is a recording of the Cisco Virtual Symposium on Virtual Machine Networking. This is a sponsored event that was held live on 25th July 2012.

Virtual Symposiums are where we bring a panel of people experts to have discussion about deeper concepts in networking. It’s about keeping it nerdy, technical and throwing the questions around and talking things through.

People are encouraged to ask questions and the panelists will do their best to answer them. The session is recorded and will be published to the Packet Pushers Podcast feed int he
