Congratulations! And thank you to all who have entered the contest.  The first place winners gain both a VMworld Ticket, US & EMEA respectively, as well the ability to share their vC Ops experience and story during session CIM1775 in a panel format with esteemed vExperts David Davis in the US and Eric Sloof in EMEA, and yours truly, Ben Scheerer.

Not to steal any thunder from the live sessions at VMworld, here are a few excerpts from the winning entires:

“Almost quarterly we have fought the “we need more vCPU” fight … Today [we] are working to make this better. Thanks vCOPS.”

Joseph Filippello

“vC Ops alarmed us before our first user noticed the performance issue. So we were able to roll back our hosts to the previous version with an absolute minimal impact on our users’ VMs. This was the best argument I had to give to my line manager to acquire VCOPS in our environment.”

Eric Krejci

Again, we are very excited for our winners to converge on VMworld 2012 and the opportunity to spend time with our valued VMware customers and don’t forget the register for session CIM1775 at the VMworld Site!

See you in San Francisco and Barcelona!

Ben Scheerer
