IMO: #VMworld US 2016: My Summary (On the new products and strategy)

It’s been a few days since VMworld is over and it took me a while to internally process the input I gathered through sessions, discussions are thinking/sleeping/gambling about them.


After the first 2 days, many of the articles & comments about  the general sessions at VMworld have been really harsch.  And to be honest, the technological guy inside of me absolutely agrees. No announcements about the next vSphere release. The new features and updates presented on the big stage were only useful for specific customer or user-groups .

  • vSphere integrated containers for developers
  • NSX enhancements for everyone ;-)
  • Horizon and Airwatch within the EUC field

All of the announcements and presentations were solid and sense-making, but most of the people in the room were missing the great thing, this big-bang feature, the vMotion moment that made most of us curious to learn more about VMware’s technology and products.

Why #VMworld (2016 US edition)

When I started blogging I would have never believed that I would say this. This is a sponsored post. No no, I am not making money by writing this, but I was gifted with a VMworld blogger pass for Las Vegas. I’m really grateful for this opportunity and I can assure that this post would have been exactly the same if I didn’t received the ticket.

People knowing me better (and understanding what I am actually doing) know that I am very excited going to #VMworld. With the following post I try to give you some reasons why I love it & why VMworld is a great event and foundation to develop yourself a little further (it’s all about personal development, isn’t it?!)

If it’s your first time visiting VMware’s US event I think you will be able to extract some useful information to gain a maximum benefit out of it.
