That’s how one attendee ‘Rod Hirsch,Twogether’ described the latest ‘On Demand Data Centre’ workshop hosted by the EIC.





Wow! What a week we had in the EIC, there was an amazing buzz around the place as we welcomed customers and partners from around EMEA to join us for the ‘On-Demand Data Centre’ workshop on Tuesday 1st, which walked the attendees through the ‘Brocade Data Centre Architecture of the Future’, layer by layer. 


What they didn’t know about this environment at the start of the day, they definitely took away with them at the end of it.


Hey - don’t just take my word for it, read what our attendees had to say:


A wider range of scope than I expected’ (Andrew Forster, Unilever)

‘This brought me up to speed with some of the in-depth technology’ (Graham Dayer, Pervasive Networks)

‘A wonderful experience, great network innovations’ (Dippy Dinesh, Immedia PLC)


And that’s not all, Terry Campbell of Vertex Pharmaceuticals was chuffed to pieces when he won the Prize Draw for a Year’s Subscription to Netflix – congratulations again!


High Five

A great day was had by all but it didn’t stop there.  The following day, our Turkish attendees attended a bespoke tailor-made briefing covering our VCS, Campus and BNA offerings giving our two speakers (both Steve’s) ‘5’s all round 


And, it wasn’t all work, as they headed to Windsor Castle to see the Queen!

A trending request from the attendees was for us to host an SDN workshop at the EIC – fancy coming along?  Drop me a line if interested...
