The industry’s (almost) biggest annual survey has just started again: the goal of the survey executed by Ruben Spruijt, CTO Atlantis Computing, and Mark Plettenberg, PM LoginVSI, is to share insights about usage, configuration and trends in the Virtual Desktop Infrastructure and Server Based Computing industry, ‘the State of the VDI and SBC union’. The survey responses will be strictly confidential and data from this research will be reported only in the aggregate. The results will be reported in a whitepaper that is free to download after registration. If that’s not enough we are also […]

DataWorks Summit (formelly Hadoop Summit) is the industry’s premier big data community event with both an European and US edition. It’s a great opportunity to learn from your peers and industry experts how open source technologies enable you to leverage all your data, on premise and in the cloud, to drive predictive analytics, distributed deep-learning, and artificial intelligence initiatives. Not necessary only with Apache Hadoop technology (and this probably is the main reason of the name changing for the event).

VMware, a global leader in cloud infrastructure and business mobility, and OVH, a global hyper-scale cloud provider, have announced OVH intends to acquire VMware vCloud Air business. Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.  The transaction is expected close in calendar 2Q 2017. Funny that OVH grpup was also a big vCloud partner from VMware and it’s curious to see that now can buy the vCloud Air business (maybe the datacenters used by VMware were almost from OVH?). But what about the technology itself, considering that vCloud Air is something more that vCloud Director […]

VMware vExpert program recognizes people that have demonstrated significant contributions to the community and a willingness to share their expertise with others. Contributing is not always blogging or Twitter as there are many public speakers, book authors, CloudCred task writing, script writers, VMUG leaders, VMTN community moderators and internal champions among this group. The primary reason for becoming vExpert certainly should not be related to any possible benefits of the program. And once confirmed you have to think more about what you can give rather to what is to be expected. But I’d be a […]
