We’re a few short days away from VMworld’s return to the Moscone Center
in San Francisco. Our team will be in booth 747 (hence the jumbo-jet below),
to demo our products and answer any questions you might have about our
products – including the new datacenter transport fabric and Big Data
fabric. Stop by the booth or send us a tweet to @PlexxiInc and we’ll catch
up for a quick chat.
You never know exactly what to expect at VMworld, but our own Mike Bushong
took a few educated guesses this week on the Plexxi blog. We’ll revisit his
thoughts after the conference to see where he hit (and missed) the mark.

A good friend and business colleague once regaled me with his definition of a
good corporate lawyer: “A good lawyer never says ‘no’; she says
‘here’s how’.” I thought this was an interesting and telling
description – not because it conjured up creative interpretations of the
law and loop-hole sleuthing corporate counsels – but that it imagined a
seasoned practioner who understood the plasticity of her infrastructure (in
this case the law) and the end goals of her client and therefore would often
find innovative solutions that yielded business advantage. Plasticity in this
Plexxi is busy gearing up for VMworld which takes place August 24 – 28,

Earlier this month our friend Greg Ferro wrote an article highlighting his
experience with scripting for networking automation and the resulting issues
with scaling. It’s definitely worth a read. In response, our own Marten
Terpstra (resident king of #TerpstraThursdays on Twitter) penned his own
thoughts on the topic, outlining a few key points he believes Greg missed and
leading to an interesting back and forth between the two. Take a look at both
of these articles on automation and scripting and let us know your own
