Day #1 @VMworld 2012

It was very intensive day, many meetings, very interested sessions, chat with fantastic people. Below small report:

Day started at 8 am with fast registration and at 9 am General Session (BTW, impressive show but little too much in American style 🙂  ) . Three words which you must remember – Software Define Datacenter – is a feature of modern datacenters, all modular like a LEGO ( network, storage, services, security, APPS) deployes  within a minutes using tools and common management console to mange all pieces of physical and virtual kingdom.

Nicira – software defined network – definitely worth to remember – hot topic among VMware VCDX’s and engineers.

Few words from VDI world – what’s is on a top right now is a flash memory (PCI express cards or on memory dimm’s) for VDI workloads  as well as stateless VDI desktops on local storage (running on super fast flash cards). Some would ask – OK but what will happen with user data when you lost a host – using Mercury product you can store user data on shared low-cost storage. Combining super fast flash local cards + low-cost shared storage for user data you can deliver VDI solution for very demanding users (start application within 1 second or less – like on portable devices with flash memory iPad’s users, new generation mobile phone users etc).

At the end of a day I head a pleasure to take part in exclusive dinner with other VCDX’s and vExperts, I met many interesting people, spoke with VMware guys about many topics.

Overall very interesting and intensive day.
