Today is a new kind of birthday for me—it’s the day I started at Hyperic 6 years ago. It’s a journey that has been nothing short of surprising. My first meeting with then CEO Javier Soltero started the pace of what was to come: I had no idea it was an interview walking in, and was even more surprised when I walked out of that same interview accepting a job that same night. That sets the tone for the next 6 years.
It’s been an exciting journey riding the waves of technology changes these past 6 years, and sitting, in my opinion, in the perfect spot to see some of the biggest disruptors unfold. I have literally had the privilege to work with the most interesting companies in technology along the way. Most of the biggest companies on the web, many of the biggest companies on the stock market, and some incredibly innovative startups have used our software, partnered with us, and in two cases—acquired us. From this vantage point, I have seen some impressive changes in our industry along the way. Here are some of the highlights: Continue reading →

Ten years ago, the Spring Framework delivered radical simplicity to the complex world of enterprise Java. Today, VMware is delivering integrated middleware components in vFabric and driving the exact same simplification agenda.
Our customers have been successfully virtualizing Java workloads on vSphere for years, and VMware has built up a wealth of experience which we’ve been sharing with exponentially increasing numbers of attendees every year at VMworld. This year is no exception! (For example, check out “The Benefits of Virtualization for Middleware” on Thursday, Aug 30, 10:30 AM – 11:30 AM.) As we’ve grown in supporting Java on vSphere, we’ve also continued to embrace more Java and open source products within our vFabric product portfolio. Continue reading →
