VMworld 2015 US recap

After our Silicon Valley Tour it was VMworld 2015 time! We registered on Sunday and immediately felt it was going to be pretty busy, numbers-of-people-wise. This was confirmed in the first general keynote. It was said there were approximately 23.000 attendees at VMworld US. That’s insane!!

The general keynotes withheld some cool announcements, but it did lack of a real ‘wow’ factor. The most significant announcements were;

  • EVO:SDDC; A rebranded name for the EVO:RACK offering that includes SDDC manager and the following (updated) products:
    • vRealize Suite for management
    • vSphere 6
    • NSX 6.2 for Software Defined Networking
    • VSAN 6.1 for Software Defined Storage
  • Project SkyScraper
    • Cross cloud vMotion; Demoed and looking very nifty! vMotion virtual machines between your on-premises (private cloud) to vCloud Air (public cloud).
    • Content Sync; seamlessly sync your on-premises content library with the content catalog in vCloud Air.
  • Cloud Native Applications
    • vSphere Integrated Containersextending vSphere for visibility of deployed containers running in a VM from an IT infrastructure point-of-view.
    • VMware Photon platform; new platform built and optimized for cloud native apps
  • Windows 10 + VMware AirWatch = Project A2;  VMware has brought the capabilities of AirWatch and App Volumes together to create unified employee management. This allows simple movement of apps from previous Windows operating systems into the Windows 10 environment.

vBeers-Eindhoven-Keep-Calm-209x300

For our dutch IT/virtualisation-enthousiasts we would like to point out the vBeers which are coming up again soon in the southern part of our beautiful country (Eindhoven to be exact).

Location: Eetcafé d’n Hertog
Address: Stationsplein 16, – 5611 AB Eindhoven (across Eindhoven Station, city center exit)
Date: Friday, 11th of September 2015
Time: From 17:30 hours

As this is the “In Between VMworlds” edition it’s a good opportunity to catch up on the announcements of VMworld SF and to surmise what could be the announcements for VMworld EMEA.

I would like to point out again that this really isn’t only for us vExpert’s or highly certified VMware-nerds but for every person who even has the remoted interest in IT and virtualisation, enjoys talking with co-enthousiasts and ofcourse drinking beers and eating snacks.

Thanks again to Marek, one of our dutch co-bloggers  for (co)-organizing this event again.

We enjoy these vBeers a lot and also will try to be there  and engage with our readership. Hope to meet you there!
