A big shout out to the 23,000 of you who were able to attend VMworld 2013 in San Francisco several weeks ago! We hope you enjoyed the more than 60 Cloud Management-focused sessions, the FREE t-shirts, and the all-you-can-eat donuts/cookies that were given out in our Cloud Management Lounge.
For those that weren’t able to partake in this inspiring event, gorge on a smorgasbord of sugary delights and/or get a fashionably FREE t-shirt, here’s a recap of the acts that stole the show…
The Mother of All Demos (MOAD)
What is Cloud Management’s own version of a death-defying stunt? The Day 2 General Session with VMware President and Chief Operating Officer Carl Eschenbach showing the integration of vCAC, ITBM and vCOPS and how it provides self-service, transparent pricing, governance, and automation. Inspiring? Yes. Business-as-usual? No. Prepare to be mesmerized as Carl showcases a service catalogue and options to deploy an app to a private or public cloud (vCAC), the costs associated with each option (ITBM) and the health of the app after deployment (vCOPS).
