Subject RE: CentOS System VM?
Date Thu, 06 Dec 2012 19:20:47 GMT
That’s why I did some in person work. I am going to really try and massage
my relationship with Brocade and get access to the Vyatta engineers. 

Hopefully between us we can get in touch with at least one influencer at
Brocade/Vyatta.

I started contacting few people, I contacted CEO of Vyatta and another
person who now works for Citrix but was VP of Marketing for Vyatta. I did
both contacts via LinkedIn.
I do think LinkedIn will probably be ignored because it's a great marketing
spam tool. 

We should try direct email.

Interesting, I spoke with Brocade yesterday and the also feel their Vyatta
acquisition is a good gap offering for cloud services.

Maybe we should see if their willing to produce the code?

that would be great. Unfortunately vyatta is also debian based.. but that's
not exactly a hard negative.
