As covered by several others, the sheer volume of prizes given out last night was amazing. Right at the end of giving out the prizes several ushers from KA showed up and escorted us to the KA Theater.

The theater was impressive in itself. Immediately after walking in above your head was two players in an enormous harp of some kind blasting music into the lobby.

Once the gaggle from Vision made it through the drink and popcorn line we were escorted to our seats. I must say that for a conference perk, the seating could not have been better. From our vantage point we could see everything on stage very clearly.

The show itself was phenomenal! You really cannot describe it unless you have some common reference point like another Cirque show. Just WOW.

After the show we were escorted to Studio 54. The band was good, atmosphere was pretty good! The “Vanilla Ice” Geek Dance off was priceless. Hopefully there weren’t any pics!

Well lets see what...

I just noticed that it will take you 10 years to get a 20/20 vision.

Another great day of Vision video coverage to bring your way.  Not only have we captured the keynote sessions, but the team has been interviewing and vlogging (video blogging) behind the scenes. 

My personal favorites are the Share your Vision videos.  I really enjoy seeing what attendees are saying about Vision 2010.  So, take a peek and be sure to let me know what videos you liked and didn't like, so we can do an even better job next year.

At Vision 2010, we’ve talked a lot about new technologies to help our customers secure and manage information from a growing number of risks and increasing number of threats.  During the Innovation Showcase at Vision, we discussed our customer-centric approach to innovation and also shared a sneak peak at an innovative research prototype from Symantec Research Labs(SRL) that is designed to help wireless carriers secure and mange information on their networks.  
 
With the growth in adoption of mobile devices, specifically smartphones, wireless carriers are exposed to new risks and are looking for ways to keep their networks secure for end-users. The premise of the Symantec Mobile Reputation Security (SMRS) prototype is to provide effective security and remediation capabilities on the smartphone.  SMRS takes the existing...

We're well into day 2 at Vision and getting closer to information overload.  If you haven't already, stop by booth 21 to see Dorado Software.  If there's still room in your brain for more info you need to learn how to see the whole picture... solve problems faster.     The Redcell Integration Component does make the problem solving faster.  And who doesn't want that!?!  Key features include:

Auto Discovery
Network Topology
Inventory
Monitoring
OS Deployment
Configuration
Compliance
Reporting
Multi-technology
  Networking
  Security
  Storage

All in a virtualized environment! 

And if you are already in the information overload stage then at least stop by to pick...

Unfortunately I'm not eligible to win an ipad, but I couldn't resist sharing a few of my favorite parts of Vision.  At the trusted advisor dinner on Monday night Ian waxed eloquent about a certain snack cake found only in the UK that apparently is responsible for 85% of his daily diet.  While wikipedia offered a decent explanation of the Jaffa Cake, Ian graciously donated a couple of boxes from his private stash for us to sample.  

After tasting this imported treat I can't say that I'm ready to replace hostess cupcakes at the top of my guilty pleasures list, but it certainly is worth a taste.  If you're up near the internet...

Great use of time with time with the hands-on lab for EV's Virtual Vault - thanks EV team for putting together a very complete demo!  Good way to fix the "forwarding of shortcut to others" issue.

When mulling over a data center asset management system that uses RFID technology, one of the first things to consider is what flavor of tag to use. The technology underpinning both active and passive tags has advanced significantly in recent times and sussing out the capabilities of each tag type will help you pick the one that's right for you.

Active tags have a power supply so their signals are stronger than their passive cousin's. It also means they're constantly emitting a signal. That makes them easier to find than passive tags which must be in close proximity to an RFID reader before revealing their presence.

Moreover, because an active tag's signal is stronger, it can often surmount any local electromagnetic interference that would mask the signal from a passive tag. Because of that, any tagging projects that involved metal required the use of active tags. That...
