If you’re one of the lucky ~4000 people who’ll attend Cisco Live in London this week, I hope you’ll enjoy it to the fullest. Make sure you go to interesting sessions, attend cool vendor demos in the exhibition center, and network with your peers/idols/fans.

Workstation 4: Big Data transforms Business
Workstation 5: Trust Transforms Cloud
Workstation 6: Cloud Services
Workstation 7: Get connected with EMC (Social media workstation)

To make it easy for you to keep track of all the cool stuff that we do at Cisco Live, EMC have a Community site up at https://community.emc.com/community/events/cisco_live, please have a look there for content, discussions and latest news.
Also, we’ll have presentations on how you can Transform IT+Business+Yourself running throughout the day with drawings for t-shirts and Apple TVs (awesome device IMHO).
Btw, ever wondered what a Vblock or a VSPEX actually looks line? Not only do we have real hardware on the floor, we also have an interactive screen where you can easily move, remove, add, change and zoom in on all the hardware that makes up those converged infrastructures. Come touch it yourself!
