Call for Questions for Gestalt IT's Net Field Day

By stretch | Wednesday, September 8, 2010 at 2:36 p.m. UTC

I've been afforded the opportunity to attend Gestalt IT's first Networking Field Day. (Here's some background info on Gestalt IT's field days.) I'll be meeting a dozen fellow bloggers in San Jose, California for a few days of presentations and discussion with various networking companies. I figured I'd get the word out ahead of time and see if some readers had questions of their own they'd like me to ask.

The companies presenting at Net Field Day include HP, SolarWinds, Cradlepoint, Force10, Juniper, Arista, and Xsigo. Rather than the artificial marketing pitches we're accustomed to, the talks promise to be engaging at a technical level. Although I don't know specifically which products and technologies will be discussed, my impression is that any sufficiently relevant questions will be entertained.

Readers can leave their questions in comments on this post if they wish, or contact me directly to submit questions in private. Please be sure to specify the vendor(s) to which your questions should be posed.

I'd love to know if HP will do anything innovative in pushing network engineers to learn the A-Series and comware os.

I think I know the answer for Arista, Force10, and Juniper, but I am not sure in regards to HP. Can you ask HP if the focus of their company is going to remain within their core competencies they have today? In other words, are they going to go after crazy market sectors like Cisco has done with Flip, Cius, public utilities, etc? I am interested in seeing HP do well in the networking space, but would rather not see them go after the consumer market. There are enough companies doing that already and some(Cisco) that probably should have avoided it altogether.

Stretch, I can only speak for myself, but I'll entertain pretty much any question - sufficiently relevant or not :)

Looking forward to seeing everyone there.
