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 […]

The ecosystem surrounding VMware and its virtualization and cloud infrastructure software is still vibrant. There is a great community (VMTN) but also a huge number of bloggers (VMware employees and not only) with some good list of them available from v12n/vExpert Blogs and also the vLaunchPad blogger list (with the Top 100 VMware/virtualization people you MUST follow on Twitter – 2017 edition). Influence Marketing Council, a membership organization for B2B technology marketers who work with influencers, advocates, and community, has also presenting their list of top 50 overall influencers for VMware.

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 […]

The 13rd edition of Tech Field Day (#TFD13) will be in Austin the first week of February (February 1–3, 2017). Note that the TFD event format replaced the Virtualization Field Day (VFD) event format more than one year ago (maybe because the buzzword virtualization is no more attractive). But to be honest first editions of VFD where just called Tech Field Day, so it’s just a return to the origin. As written in a previous post the agenda is very rich with several companies and sessions in those three days:

I’m very proud and honored to be invited at the 13rd edition of Tech Field Day (#TFD13) that will be in Austin the first week of February (February 1–3, 2017). After some Virtualization Field Day, one Data Field Day and some Tech Field Day Extra, I’m back for the first time in Austin and for the first time at a Tech Field Day (TFD) event format. The TFD event format replaced the Virtualization Field Day (VFD) event format more than one year ago (maybe because the buzzword virtualization is no more attractive). But to be […]
