VMworld Day 2 – Twitter Hashtag Info

Day 2 of VMworld is going strong and there is an absolute ton of content being delivered both on the solutions exchange floor, the breakout sessions and in the hands on labs (#HoL). To keep up with the twitter hashtags, here are few that you can follow to receive up to the minute news (I realize that many have been using this for a while, but for those that don’t know):

  • #VMworld or #VMworld2011 – This is the general hashtag to receive general news
  • #View – VMware View updates
  • #HoL – This hashtag is being used for the Hands on Labs (mainly regarding line status)
  • #EMC #NetAPP #Broadcom #HP #ciscovmw – Vendor Specific Information
  • #CloudTalk – General Information regarding the cloud 🙂
  • #Cfoundry – Cloud Foundry Updates
  • #SocialMedia – I’ve seen a few twitter users leveraging this hash-tag to blast out some VMworld related information.
  • #Virtualization – Again, not used for VMworld specific information, but I’ve noticed that it is used in conjunction with VMworld Info.
  • #EnterpriseDB – Information regarding VMware’s Postgres proprietary database.
This is not an “All Inclusive List”, but hope the it helps you organize your Twitter feeds for maximum VMworld coverage by those in the social media realm.

VMworld Day 3 & 4

Sorry all, missed my post from day 3 and I am doing a combined post for the last two days here.

What a week! The labs were a huge success and I could tell by the long lines the last few days. Spent most of my time on the solutions exchange floor and at the whiteboard commons area talking with fellow engineers about design considerations. It’s so awesome that there are so many individuals that have the right mind-set for these deployments. Almost every single person that I talked to had a well rounded background for virtualization. Many years of experience makes for well built solutions – that was the theme the last few days.

I also spent some time at the solutions exchange where I talked with some vSpecialists and NetApp folks, but spent the majority of my time at the VMware booth talking about design concepts and finding our more information about products I haven’t had a chance to use yet.

I am still bummed that I didn’t make it to all the breakout sessions that I wanted to attend. I guess 17,000+ attendee’s will do that, but I did run into may great individuals in the industry that are fellow blogger’s and twitter users.

Anyway, this has to be the best VMworld that I’ve attended over the last 4 years and I can’t wait for VMworld 2011!
