It is great to be back at VMware and sharing with all of you once again after a wonderful year at EMC where I was rollin with the Elite – Cloud Business Director Team.
My new role, Cloud Management Security & Compliance Evangelist. What have I been doing? Getting the Wolf Pack back together in a HUGE way at VMware with some key new additions like Tom Corn and my long time friend & colleague Dr. Dennis Moreau.
The gang is working on amazing projects like the planets first PCI Validated Cloud using OpenStack and NSX! Of course we are enlisting a little help from our fiends at Coalfire , VMware CP&C & Rich Rees. The risk and cost could be high, but we will do our best to prove it out. BTW: CP&C is still delivering great content including PCI 3.0, HIPAA and FedRamp. The team is also working on updated integrated solutions for vCOPS (vCM) and Archer (GRC).
For those of you who did not have the opportunity to attend RSA 2k14 you missed out! There were over 20k folks in attendance and the amount of new startups in the cloud space had the expo floor hyped up. (Not mention the fact that a vendor had a FULL BLOWN boxing ring with 2 pro fighters entertaining the blood thirsty crowd! I Also have to mention strong representation from BeyondTrust, HyTrust and CipherCloud)
The VMware booth also had a ton of great traffic and for ONCE, people were not asking questions like “What are you doing at RSA?”. This year it was all about our solutions like LogInsight, NSX, vCM aka vCOPS and the tremendous partner ecosystem we have put together over the last few years.
