Only few hours left until the third edition of the Virtualization Field Day (#VFD3), scheduled on March 5-7 in Silicon Valley (California). As written, for the first time I’ll be a delegate and I’m very excited and curios about this type of events. Also the Tech Field Day sessions are often streamed live, and recordings will be available after the event and could become available also for non delegates. In most cases they become a must to understand some technologies (see this post on why you need to be watching Tech Field Day).

VFD-LogoVirtualization Field Day is one type of the Technical Field Day events, organized by Stephen Foskett and his team, with the purpose of bring together innovative IT product vendors and independent thought leaders to share information and opinions in a presentation and discussion format. Virtualization Field Day (VFD) focuses on server and desktop virtualization and management technologies and will be really interesting be part of this event and this group of people.

This event will be a good opportunity to know better some vendors and their products. But also to meet other people and share experience and impressions: delegate list has several well know names (Marco Broeken, Alastair Cooke, David M Davis, James Green, Scott D. Lowe, Paul Meehan, Eric Shanks, Rick Schlander, Jeff Wilson, Eric Wright).

Also the vendors list in quite interesting and rich:

During this week, I will probably not post (I’m not so fast to realize something live or close-live). Reasonably I will only tweet and, of course, interact during the meeting. But I will realize posts on which has impressed or interested me after the event. I’ve already write something about Atlantis Computing, CommVault e VMTurbo, but also those post must be updated.
