I’ve got the opportunity to read one new book about the Horizon View solution: VMware Horizon Workspace Essentials from Peter von Oven (the co-author of other VMware Horizon books, like VMware Horizon Workspace Essentials).
This book is not from VMware Press, but from a different editor, that is Packt Publishing and has several interesting books (really a lot on virtualization and still growing) and actually has several interesting authors (and reviewers) for those books from the VMware’s community.
The Packt’s Essentials series has a specific learning pathway and level: fast paced, concentrated introductions showing the quickest way to put the tool to work in the real world.
From Thursday 18th December to Tuesday January 6th, every eBook and video will be available on the Packt Publishing’s website for just $5.
As written in a previous post, Veeam Certified Engineer (VMCE) certification is a documented proof that an engineer possesses the necessary level of expertise to correctly architect, implement and configure Veeam Software Solutions.
This Veeam’s certification (introduced with the v7 of its products) is a great investment for an IT professional looking to increase productivity, reduce operating costs, propel personal career advancement and achieve industry recognition.
The first company that we met (on the first day) was Nimble Storage, one well know name in the storage world (and present for the fouth time at a IT Press Tour).
The second company that we met on the second day was ObjectiveFS, an interesting company with a single but unique product in the cloud area.
The last company that we met (on the last day) was Platfora, a company specialized in the the Big Data and Analytics world.
VMware announced the general availability of new cloud management offerings including a significant update to VMware vRealize™ Suite 6, a cloud management platform built for the hybrid cloud. The suite was announced during the last VMworld EU, but finally it’s available for the download.
New product releases now available include VMware vRealize™ Operations™ 6.0, VMware vRealize Business™ 6.0 Standard, VMware vRealize Business 8.2 Advanced and Enterprise, VMware vRealize Automation™ 6.2, and VMware vRealize Log Insight™ 2.5. VMware vRealize Code Stream™ 1.0, a new solution for supporting agile development and DevOps processes, is also now available.
The third day has started (and also ended with a dinner) with Diablo Technologies, a privately held company, headquartered in Ottawa, Canada, with additional teams throughout the United States and Europe.
The second company that we met on the third day was SpanningCloudApps, a company founded on 2010 and based in Austin (TX) that provide unique cloud-to-cloud backup solutions and recently (October 2014) acquired by EMC (now is formally called Spanning by EMC).
Spanning CloudApps is a company, recently aquired by EMC, leading provider of cloud data protection for cloud SaaS appliacation like Google Apps and Saleforce. Was also one of the company that I’ve meet during the IT Press Tour 14 (for more information see also this post).
Now they announced the first enterprise-grade cloud-to-cloud backup solution for Office 365. It’s designed from the ground up to be fully functional on desktops, tablets and mobile devices, allowing users to access information whenever and wherever they work. This marks the latest expansion of Spanning’s product offering, through which the company will bring the same application-centric focus and backup and restore expertise to Office 365 that it has for Google Apps and Salesforce solutions.
