Destination Give Back at VMworld

I’m back at VMworld 2015. Amongst the keynotes, breakout sessions, and Hands-on Lab, as I look around VMworld, I see a buzzing ecosystem of VMware customers, partners, employees and fans. This morning, when I walked into Gen Session to hear Yanbing Li, I saw that Destination Give Back has returned this year to VMworld – a reflection of VMware’s EPIC2 value of community. This year, we’re mobilizing VMworld attendees to demonstrate our collective impact as a VMware community. Of course our VMware community includes more than VMworld attendees and the best part is that everyone can participate. I get ahead of myself though. Here’s how Destination Give Back works: Take action by standing for your cause. When you upload a photo...

NSX at VMworld 2015

I finished off 2014 with a round of predictions about the future of network virtualization, and now I find myself preparing my VMworld® 2015 session on a similar topic. So as a preview of what I’ll be talking about in a few days (and later on at VMworld Europe), I thought it would be worth looking at how my predictions are playing out at this point in the year. One of the most important points in my end-of-year blog was that 2015 would be a year in which both the VMware NSX™ team and our customers would focus on issues of manageability and operations. This has certainly been the case, and is a good indicator of what we see as the maturing of...

VMworld Fever Begins

July 31, 2015
By

Roughly nine years ago I attended my first VMworld. It was VMworld Europe; I had applied to be our company’s representative in years before that as well but wasn’t selected. You can imagine that when I was selected I was ecstatic. The experience, well, I felt like a little kid who visits Disney World (or Disneyland) for the very first time. Instead of having my picture taken with Goofy or Donald Duck, I would ask questions of product engineers and technical marketing engineers. My parade was the keynote by Diane Greene and Mendel Rosenblum; I will never forget that and some of the awesome new technologies announced during those keynotes. Fast forward to 2015. The situation is a bit different today. Today I am...

VMware and Docker – Better Together

Today at VMworld 2014 I have the pleasure of co-presenting with Ben Golub, Docker CEO, on our joint container strategy. Our session, “ SDDC3350 – VMware and Docker – Better Together ,” will run on Monday from 5:30-6:30 and on Tuesday from 12:30-1:30. For more insight into the work that we are doing with containers, I encourage you to take a look at the following posts: VMware + Containers = Containers without Compromise Docker Service Broker for Cloud Foundry Gartner Panel Reveals Stark Differences in Container Based PaaS Options Combined architectures that leverage both containers and VMs are nothing new. Cloud Foundry Warden first supported this approach in 2011. In addition, Amazon EC2 first supported containers via LXC in...
