Below is the paragraph Copying from Eric’s post, what should you look for while voting.
  • Longevity – Anyone can start a blog but it requires dedication, time & effort to keep it going. Some bloggers start a blog only to have it fall to the wayside several months later. Things always come up in life but the good bloggers keep going regardless of what is happening in their life.
  • Length – It’s easy to make a quick blog post without much content, nothing wrong with this as long as you have good content in the post that people will enjoy. But some bloggers post pretty long detailed posts which takes a lot of time and effort to produce. The tip of the hat goes to these guys that burn the midnight oil trying to get you some great detailed information.
  • Frequency – Some bloggers post several times a week which provides readers with lots of content. This requires a lot of effort as bloggers have to come up with more content ideas to write about. Frequency ties into length, some do high frequency/low length, some do low frequency/high length, some do both. They’re all good and require a lot of time and effort on the bloggers part.
  • Quality – It all comes down to whats in the blog post regardless of how often or how long the blog posts are. After reading a blog post if you come away with learning something that you did not previously know and it benefits you in some way then you know you are reading a quality post. Good quality is usually the result of original content, its easy to re-hash something previously published elsewhere, the good bloggers come up with unique content or put their own unique spin on popular topics.

VMware Brings the Net Effect to Interop 2016

Source: VMware

The Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, was the center of the networking universe this week as it hosted a global audience of IT professionals for Interop 2016. This year’s conference theme, “Your Network is Your Business,” provided an ideal framework for VMware’s own conference themes and messages.

Net More From Your Network

VMware’s efforts at Interop highlighted how making incremental changes to your network through virtualization would have far-reaching benefits to your organization, your customers, their communities, and beyond.

To illustrate the benefits of network virtualization, and of VMware NSX in particular, VMware invited conference attendees to take advantage of two special relaxation stations featuring VMware-branded energy pods. These pods offered attendees a break from the hustle of the Interop show floor and encouraged them to “choose a network that nets more”—a central theme of VMware’s network virtualization solution. Those who attended one or more VMware presentations were invited to “re-charge” and feel the benefits of The Net Effect in the VMware energy pods.

VMware Speaker Highlights

A highlight of VMware’s participation in this year’s Interop conference was noted VMware architect and IT blogger Scott Lowe. His appearance in a panel discussion focused on the changing landscape of the networking industry. Lowe also hosted an “Ask Me Anything” session on software-defined architectures and virtualization.

Another highlight for VMware was a livestreamed interview with VMware Vice President, Worldwide Sales and Systems Engineering, Dominick Delfino. During his conversation with Brian Gillooly, vice president of Events Content and Strategy at UBM Technology Group, Delfino covered a wide array of topics, including use cases for NSX, factors driving the growth of the SDN market, and VMware’s unique selling position in the networking space.

Speaking about the challenges customers face today, Delfino said that “people are looking for a new approach to how to solve their problems.” Referring to challenges such as “keeping up with the pace and rate of change, the demands of their business, and securing their architecture,” Delfino noted, “this angst and challenge is what’s helping SDN move forward.”

And the Award Goes To…

Perhaps the biggest highlight for VMware, though, came when the company received theprestigious Best of Interop award for the SDN category. Dominick Delfino had the honor of accepting the award on VMware’s behalf. The Best of Interop award provided a fitting capstone to this exciting and memorable week for VMware in Las Vegas.
