Well what a trip that was! I have to say VMworld in Barcelona was a really amazing experience and I only wish I could have been there for more of it as there were many talks I wanted to get in on. I’m not going to try and cover everything that I saw or tell you all of the news that VMware came out with as there are many blogs that already cover this and many will have done so during the event. What I do want to say is if you ever get an opportunity to go then do it! I was lucky enough to have a VMware account manager who reached out to a partner and they offered to take me – many thanks to all of those involved.
I think as with HPE Discover which I’ve also attended, these events provide great insight and encourage conversations and stimulate the imagination. My e-mail inbox is currently flooded with messages from vendors and sales people which is to be expected. I hope to meet with some of them to further discuss what they can offer, whether it’s something we want now or perhaps just an interesting product which could replace an existing system in the future.
Fingers crossed I will get to attend more events like this as they provide great learning opportunities.
