Emulex isn’t what I thought it was..


I had the great pleasure meeting Thomas Jones from Emulex. Now when we met I hadn’t really asked him exactly what him or his company did. I then recieved a message to make sure to check the Emulex booth out and enter their raffle. I did so because who doesn’t like free Swag? Honestly I just went & entered for the raffle and got to spin a wheel. I won a security lock carabiner, I was hoping for the foam sword!
After attending Stuart Miniman‘s session Converged Data Center: FCoE, iSCSI, and the Future of Storage Networking. I really enjoyed the topic and found myself wanting to learn more. Now conferences get busy and I put my questions on the back burner to ask Mr. Miniman later.

While back in the Blogger’s Lounge, I was chatting with Mr. Jones. I asked him what his company did. I was completely SHOCKED when he said that one of the things Emulex did was make Network cards that supported FCoE. We then chatted briefly on that which I’ll discuss in a later post.

I said to Mr. Jones that I was shocked his company didn’t do some kind of security thing. I mentioned to him that I came to the conclusion based on how their booth was set up. I mean there was a Lady dressed liking a Viking warrior, swords, giving away security locks and such. I know all that stuff was related to security but was surprised to find out differently.

What would you all have thought?
