Feedback from the attendees

Really liked that you sum up pros and cons for different solutions in the slides, and also recommend certain solutions. This gives me a nice reference to use afterwards, when talking to upper management and server admins.

I took this course to get arguments for investing in Cisco Nexus1000v, and you helped me out with a lot of great arguments for doing that. Keep up with these great webinars

I appreciate your detailed explanation. Although virtual server access networking seems to be complicated, this webinar makes clear the design of the networking.

This session clears many things up. Sometimes not exactly easy to catch on, if you consider anything below layer 3 a bit abstract. People from networking side definitely benefit from knowing what's under the hood and if it helps cooperation with server people, even better.

I work for an SP, but we manage customer's LAN devices as part of their outsourcing contracts. As the "cloud" things goes everywhere now, it stops being traditional catalyst switches only. (In fact, we have to figure out how to deal with administrative things like provisioning, documenting or billing of virtual switch instances and per-port changes because of all this things going virtual but that's another story ...)

On a very few slides if we lose your explanation (e.g. flowing your cursor) it was a bit hard to come back and by just looking at the diagram to understand the flow of data (e.g. slide 65 HP TippingPoint vController). Not a big problem since we are able to go back and review the recording... but maybe some numbered arrows could help out in a quick glance.

Webinar was actually better than I expected, and I had read the slides before hand! Lot's to learn in the virtualisation!
... BTW, I've NEVER (happily) sat thru a 3+ hr webinar. Except yours. Well done.
