A year ago I asked you to help me plan this year’s webinars. Let’s see how well I matched those expectations:
#1 – IPv6 access networks update. Done.
#2 – Data Center and Virtual Networking Security. Missed. I wrote several blog posts about this topic, mentioned individual products and components in various webinars (example: Cloud Computing Networking and Introduction to Virtual Networking) and public presentations, but still don’t have a comprehensive webinar on this topic.
#3 – Metro Ethernet and VPLS. Shelved. Although there was high interest during the survey, I got zero questions on this topic throughout the year; can’t explain the difference between survey results and follow-up reality. Any ideas?
#4 – vSphere 5.0 Networking Update. Postponed. vSphere 5.1 update is planned for spring 2013 ... and it’s a good thing I waited; 5.1 and the new vCNS is way sexier than 5.0 was.
#5 – NAT64 and DNS64. Close miss. Instead of focusing on a single migration technology, the IPv6 Transition Mechanisms webinar in January 2012 covers a bunch of them.
