I’m in New York City this week to live blog the Open Networking User Group (ONUG) Fall 2015 conference.
ONUG brings together IT executives and analysts from finance and tech to talk about the state of cloud and all things software-defined, share deployment experiences, and look over the horizon at what’s next.
I’m here as a delegate for Tech Field Day, which is running an “ONUG Extra” event on site. As a delegate I’ll get to sit in on presentations from Cisco, CloudGenix, HP and Versa Networks. It’s a great opportunity to get a deep dive into new technologies, including HP’s recently released open-source switch OS OpenSwitch.
And because this is a TFD event, you can also see the presentations, which will be streamed live and then made available on demand. The presentation schedule is here.
I’m also live blogging several of the ONUG presentations, including The Great Debate and the Town Hall.
The Great Debate takes up the intriguing topic of “Will Software Make Everything Better?” and the Town Hall features panelists discussing “How To Use Hybrid Cloud Services with Split Application Architecture.”
I’m going to try to catch as many details as I can from these sessions, so please excuse typos and misspellings in the live blog as I type furiously.
A Live Podcast
ONUG and TFD will keep me busy, but those aren’t the only things going on. On Wednesday evening, Greg Ferro and Ethan Banks are recording a podcast, sponsored by Viptela, where they’ll talk real-world SD-WAN deployments with actual customers in front of a live audience.
A live recording should be a lot of fun. And on a side note, this will be the first time since I joined the Packet Pushers crew that Greg, Ethan, and I will all be in the same physical location at the same time.
If you see three middle-aged, bearded gentleman skipping through the West Village signing “We’re Off To See The Wizard” it just might be us.
