Attendees of this year’s Cisco Live conference in Orlando Florida left with a big takeaway: Cisco and Google Cloud now work together.

The importance of this initiative to Cisco was obvious because of the time spent on the subject by Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins as he delivered the keynote address, and by the unmistakable signage everywhere at the conference announcing the new joint venture.

During the keynote, Robbins discussed how Cisco aims to change some network paradigms by making faster business decisions based on real time data.

What does this mean? Cisco customers can choose from either Google Cloud, Cisco cloud offerings, or a hybrid of the two. The new architecture uses open source solutions as part of the structure. This new partnership will assist organizations to become both more robust and flexible. The cloud enhancement will not only improve scalability, but will also help to enable an advanced level of security for enterprise systems.

Another unscientific observation made by this reporter is that tech companies really, really dig car racing. The World of Solutions exhibits featured many companies displaying the race cars that they sponsor. Below Troy McMillan poses with the #43 Bubba Wallace Nascar entry sponsored by World Wide Technologies:

Eight years ago, CompTIA introduced its three-year expiration policy for its flagship certifications. To keep their certifications current, students may register Continuing Education Units (CEU) to recertify instead of re-taking the relevant exam at the end of the three years.

If you’ve been curious about the CE program, the CompTIA Instructor Network and Continuing Education (CE) team will present a free, in-depth discussion of their Continuing Education (CE) Program at 9:30 am EST / 10:30 am CST on August 22nd, 2018.

While the webinar will be geared toward instructors, anyone who wants clarification on the whys and hows of the CE program is welcome to join.
