VMworld 2017 Europe (day 1)

For me VMworld already started on Monday with the Partner Exchange and the TAM day. It started today with the keynote by, amongst other speakers, Pat Gelsinger and Sanjay Poonen. They talked about the strategy for VMware. Pat was saying that tech was breaking out of tech. Alan Renouf was, together with Pat Gelsinger, a way of managing your environment via VR. Following announcements were done:

  • VMware Integrated Open Stack 4.0
  • vSphere Integrated Containers 1.2
  • VMware HCX

After the keynote I had no session scheduled so I made a short visit to the solution exchange. Lot of interesting vendors and of course also the usual suspects. Also got some of the swag from some vendors.

After lunch I attended sessions around VMware Cloud on AWS, Containers and Appdefense. A lot of interesting info and new opportunities. In the coming weeks I will write more about VMware Cloud on AWS and Appdefense.
