Great turnout at the VMware bloggers lounge today – here is a quick video clip of the place and the jumbo TV broadcasting live.
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):
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!
