It is day 2 of Citrix Synergy 2012 and I’ll be live blogging the event. For highlights from yesterday’s keynote, check out this post.  This keynote should be a bit more demo oriented about current products rather than future-focused.  Stay tuned…

May 10, 2012, 10:43 am #CitrixSynergy Netscaler CloudBridge2 with built in cloud providers is really cool. Lets you set up a bridge between your inf. and a public cloud quickly and easily. Kind of like a app store for public clouds.
May 10, 2012, 10:37 am #CitrixSynergy we’re looking at a demo from RightScale now. Orchestration to AWS, CloudStack, and bursting. Will Avalon be disruptive in this area?

May 10, 2012, 10:09 am #CitrixSynergy if you are running workloads on CloudStack and want to move them to AWS, you can do that – cool.
May 10, 2012, 9:54 am #CitrixSynergy – the Cloud to CIO, all your IT are belong to us…
May 10, 2012, 9:49 am #CitrixSynergy the driving idea so far is the rank and file employees are driving the adoption of cloud in the enterprise. Ready or not CIO, here comes cloud.
May 10, 2012, 9:46 am #CitrixSynergy @GevaPerry is on now. Talking about cloud adoption is from the bottom up which is a fancy way of saying consumerization of IT
May 10, 2012, 9:42 am #CitrixSynergy now talking about what cloud is not. This session has the potential to be a snoozer. Please prove me wrong.
May 10, 2012, 9:39 am #CitrixSynergy from the speaker lineup, this keynote will be mostly cloud centric.
