Key Takeawys from VMworld 2014

Last week was a pretty busy week with VMworld 2014 in San Franciso, followed by a long weekend during which some of us may be even busier. If you haven’t got chance to the conference, you can check out the recorded VMworld keynotes, and maybe later recorded break-out sessions.

While there were many announcements/news in the conference from VMware and other vendors. I think the following three are the most important ones.

VMworld 2014

Today is the first day of VMworld 2014 San Francisco. For the last 7 consecutive years, I have attended all the VMworld conferences in US, either as a speaker, booth duty staff, or normal attendee. This year is no exception. As always, I find the solution exchange is the best part of the conference, so I spent several hours in the reception party this afternoon. While enjoying the good food, I talked to quite a few vendors. When the party was over, I found I only finished two rows. So there are a lot more work tomorrow.

VMworld 2013 Impression: Is VMware Ready For Next Growth?

Last week was pretty exciting with VMworld 2013 in San Francisco. I sat through the keynotes and talked to many friends at VMware and partner community who showed up in the SolutionExchange where I spent most of my time. On Thursday I got a bit time to attend a few breakout sessions.

In first day keynote, VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger laid out three imperatives for VMware: 1) Virtualization extended to ALL of IT; 2) Management gives way to automation; 3) Compatible hybrid cloud is ubiquitous. The keynote was centered around these three imperatives.

VMworld 2011 Las Vegas: Day Two

Today is day two of VMworld 2011 in Las Vegas. VMware CTO Steve Herrod got on stage with his technology deep dives into various products and new projects around the cloud story – “your cloud, own it.” Again this is based on my note and memory, and has not reviewed by anyone. Mistakes are all mine.

vSphere Java API at VMworld 2010

Last week was a super busy week for all the people involved in VMworld 2010 in San Francisco. Because I spent two hours driving to Moscone Center and back home, I didn’t write any blog after getting back totally exhausted. Now it’s time to get back to it.

I believe there are many blogs/news on VMworld in general. Let me get down to a much narrow part: VMware Sponsored open source vSphere Java API at VMworld 2010.

Thanks to the community, my presentation on vSphere API Best Practice went very well. It’s based on the top 10 best practices blog (part 1, part 2) I wrote early this year, with real world experiences shared with partner engagements. Two copies of my book were given away at the end of the presentation. Thanks to Pablo Roesch for getting the books!

After the presentation, I was invited to check out new products built on top of vSphere Java API. I cannot disclose all of them here because some are not yet on the poweredby page. Here are several companies I can publicly talk about:
