Reading Time: 7 minutes E2EVC Virtualization Conference is an independent, non-commercial, virtualisation community event build from experts to experts. As written in a previous post, next event will take place on November 1-3, 2013  in Rome, for the first time in Italy at the H10 Hotel Roma Città.

Reading Time: 2 minutes The second day of the Powering the Cloud event is almost similar to the first one (see the report of day 1), with the only main difference that it will finish some hours earlier. The entire show confirm the reasons to attend at this event, and I think to attend also the next year. As written in the previous post, the agenda was almost dense and structured in different paths and topics, without specific general sessions.

Reading Time: 2 minutes Also this year I’m attending at the Powering the Cloud event (this was the report of past event). I’ve already written about the reasons to attend at this event, now let’s describe how (and if) were valuable. The agenda is almost dense and structured in different paths and topics. There isn’t a real general session, so you can choose what you prefer and build your personal agenda. Of course keynotes still exists, but are just in a dedicated track. But I’ve also already had some scheduled meetings: on the first day with SNIA, DotHill, SpectraLogic. […]

Reading Time: 3 minutes During the recent VMworld Europe, I’ve got the opportunity to talk with Tony Hampel, Director, Product Marketing of Nexenta about their product for VDI environments. I’ve already met them one year ago, during the past edition of VMworld EU (and also during the Open Storage Summit EMEA 2012) and I’ve also wrote about their product N4V. This was the opportunity to know the news about those months. Nexenta VSA for VMware Horizon View (NV4V) is a purpose built virtual storage appliance (VSA) that simplifies deployment and management of virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) storage. By integrating with […]

Reading Time: 5 minutes During the recent VMworld Europe, I’ve got the opportunity to talk with Mick Bradley, VP Technology Solutions & Service EMEA of Violin Memory about their storage products and their users cases in virtualization projects. I’ve already met them one year ago, during the past edition of Powering The Cloud and this was the opportunity to know the news about those months.

Reading Time: 3 minutes During the recent VMworld Europe, I’ve got the opportunity to talk with Gavin McLaughlin, Solution Development Director EMEA of X-IO about their products and their history. Yes, because X-IO has a long term (over two decades with different names) of expertise to deliver unmatched price/performance for enterprise applications. It’s all started in 1999 with Seagate Technologies with the idea of build a new zero touch design storage: Seagate invested over $100 million in this project, but on 2007 this technology was acquired by Xiotech and Intellinget Storage Element (ISE) has began is life on 2008.

Reading Time: 4 minutes During the recent VMworld Europe, I’ve got the opportunity to talk with Gregg Holzrichter, Vice President of Marketing of Atlantis Computing about their virtualization products. Atlantis Computing, with the headquarter in California (Mountain View) and an office also in EMEA (London), was the winner of “Best of VMworld 2012” and “Best of Citrix Synergy 2012” awards, addresses the challenges of storage-intensive virtualized and cloud applications: performance, cost and the ability to scale-out on demand. Their solutions are targeted for the VDI and presentation virtualization area by providing a solution to accelerate the storage and optimize […]

Reading Time: 3 minutes The 6th annual European VMworld event has finished and it’s time for the conclusions on how was the event. Some considerations are already included in my precedent post. So just let go deeper on each single day and detail.

Reading Time: < 1 minute The VMworld EU 2013 has finished today Thu 17 October. As usually most of the activities close in the early afternoon (or also in the morning), making the last day the weakest one. At least certifications and some activities are still running for the rest of the day. In the next post I will provide a report of the event and all my meetings!

Reading Time: 3 minutes Considering that the core products were already announced in the US edition of VMworld, one of the (obvious) announce at VMworld EU was about the management suite (and also the Horizon Suite 5.3 and NSX 1.0). But VMware has not only announced the new versions of some management products, but also the entire cloud management vision:

Reading Time: < 1 minute My session at vBrownbag Tech Talks will be today: 13:15 – 13:30 “VMware Certifications: which one can (or must) I choose?”

Reading Time: 2 minutes Officially the VMworld EU 2013 starts tomorrow, but today there is the VMware partner day, so most people are alredy at Barcelona! I’m also attending at the partner day, and also the #vBrownbag TechTalk sessions are running. Are announced over 8,000 attendees and more than 200 breakout sessions. So let’s see how goes this event. Actually my journey has start yesterday with the VCDX Bootcamp: I was really curious to attend at one session and I have to admit that it’s really useful and valuable for VCDX preparation. I really hope that will be possible […]

Reading Time: 4 minutes VMware Certified Associate certifications are the new level (the entry level) of VMware certifications path. It is similar as other associate level from different vendor and does not have mandatory courses (but the company does provide self-paced free eLearning courses for each to help potential associates to prepare for the certification exam), but also it’s not mandatory (actually) for next level (VCP), so it’s mainly for people that want a certification but probably does not have an plan to approach (in short time) other level.
