VMworld 2013 Keynote Wrap-up

Another great keynote delivered by VMware this morning. I won’t go into all the details since you can find most of that information from the website, but I do want to point out a few key announcements.

First off, they made a point durning the first 5 minutes to make sure that they allied out the VMUG organization which I thought was a great opening and will hopefully draw a ton of people over to the VMUG booth for registration.

Second, they announced the general availability of vSphere 5.5 and vCloud Suite 5.5.

VSAN was another big announcement which is now in public beta.

The major announcement for this morning had to be NSX hands-down. This was the Nicira acquisition that has been rolled into their product suite that will be officially available the first half of 2014.

A final note that I found interesting was that we have now surpassed the number of physical network ports with virtual ports. A definite move in the right direction.
