This week we had a customer event at Dallas Cowboys stadium where we held three educational sessions and then went on tours of the stadium - something not many get to experience! No matter which NFL team we cheer for, we all learned a lot and had a fun time doing it.
The first session of the day focused on potential strategies for making the most of your IT budget, including using pre-owned equipment when it makes sense for your business. In this session, we also learned various options for responsible IT asset disposition and e-waste management.
Next, we heard best practices for data center cabling infrastructure, equipment and cabling design to future-proof the high-speed data center at speeds of up to 100 Gigabit Ethernet and beyond - all while increasing efficiency, reliability and performance.

Lastly, our friends at Brocade discussed how to build dynamic, manageable networks through non-stop networking, application optimization and investment protection.

We all had a great time. After all, what could be a better combination than IT and football?
