The Riverbed Blog (testing)

A blog in search of a tagline

Day One at Interop 2010 NYC

Posted by riverbedtest on October 18, 2010

Interop logo Today I had the good fortune to sit in for about half the day in the CIO Boot Camp at Interop New York.  The CIO Boot Camp was sponsored by Riverbed (which is how I got to sit in).  The conversations and discussions were fascinating: what will be The Next Big Thing in IT, some fascinating approaches to Vendor Management, the present and future of outsourcing.  The moderator, Thornton May, was extremely lively and entertaining.

P1070981The Boot Camp continues tomorrow with a presentation from John Lax of the International Justice Mission.  We'll have pictures and discussions about it tomorrow night, and if all goes well, a complete video of his talk on our YouTube channel by the end of the week.

Riverbed is the only vendor sponsor of the CIO Boot Camp this year.  In past years, we've been one of a few vendors to sponsor it, but not this year. 

Riverbed is also very visible in the attendee enrollment area of the Javits Center.  Registration is performed on PCs that are spread out over a bunch of tables.  On each PC screen is a Riverbed ad, and next to each of the PCs is some Riverbed literature.  (See the picture on the left side.)

Also, right behind a statue of the Convention Center's namesake, Senator Jacob Javits, you can see a large poster-sized Riverbed ad ("Break the Performance Barrier"). (See the picture on the right.)  It's going to be very difficult to miss Riverbed if you attend Interop 2010 New York.

The expo floor opens Wednesday; look for us in Booth 221, in the big booth right inside the main entrance.
