Party With The In Crowd On The Infield at the VMworld Party at AT&T Park!

Two years ago, we had an epic party at AT&T Park for VMworld attendees and back by popular demand, we’re returning once again to this iconic location.


This year, we’re having carnival rides, midway games, a laser light show and live performances from two of the hottest bands around. We also have a special activity this year right in the center of the park, so get ready to…roll.

So please join us on the baseball diamond Wednesday night, 7:30PM – 10:30PM, for networking, relaxing, and all the good old-fashioned fun you can handle. Our biggest bash of the year is your chance to let loose, make friends and celebrate VMworld 2015 in an amazing venue. We look forward to seeing you there!

For live updates from the conference, be sure to follow us on Twitter at @VMworld or on Facebook at Facebook.com/VMworld.


Countdown to VMworld: Top 3 Sessions to Dive into Cloud-Native Apps

Businesses are delivering new applications to market in increasingly faster cycles, with next-generation applications being built on infrastructure assumed to be dynamic and elastic. For our second post in this five part series, we’re showcasing the top three sessions in the Cloud-Native Apps solution track, where attendees can learn how to stay agile by leveraging VMware infrastructure technologies. If you need suggestions for the hybrid cloud track, check out our post from last week.

As we move into the mobile-cloud era, we’re seeing tectonic shifts in the enterprise. The way applications are developed and operated, in addition to how they’re architected and deployed, have significantly changed.

To bridge this gap, our Cloud-Native Apps group helps developers and operations engineers quickly build and seamlessly manage next-generation applications, while supporting open standards for agility, interoperability and security.

If you’d like to learn more about Cloud-Native Apps at VMworld 2015, here are three sessions you can’t miss:

1.    Container orchestration with the SDDC – CNA4590

  • Containers are emerging as a critical tool for both developers and infrastructure admins, which might mean infrastructure no longer needs virtualization. This session will demonstrate the synergies of the SDDC and container technologies.

2.    Panel: Enterprise architecture for Cloud-Native Applications – CNA5379

  • Led by VMware CTO for EMEA Joe Baguley, VMware experts will discuss all the topics surrounding Cloud-Native Apps and walk through the vision that VMware has for next generation application development and hosting. The panel will share insight into what can be achieved with containerization, micro services and DevOps. 

3.    Running Cloud-Native Apps on your existing infrastructure – CNA5479

  • Through practical experiences, various strategies will be explored to show how to support both traditional and Cloud Native Applications with a platform that can be integrated into existing IT infrastructures to deliver against both application architectures.

VMworld 2015 is just a few weeks away – make sure you visit our Schedule Builder to help you plan, and follow us on Twitter at @VMworld or on Facebook for real-time updates!
