VMworld 2016 – Heraflux in Las Vegas Day 4 (VMworld Conference Day 2)

Our schedule today included a number of meetings with clients and partner contacts.  Due to confidentiality I cannot disclose names, but will highlight as much info as possible in this recap of the second day at VMworld, and our fourth day in Las Vegas.

The second day at VMworld for Heraflux started with a breakfast meeting with a client contact.  It is always appreciated when customers and partners take time from the conference schedule to say hello.  After breakfast we went to the Solutions Exchange to meet with a couple executive contacts from one of the conference Platinum sponsors.  We’ve done past advisory work for this company, and are optimistic we may be doing some future joint marketing activities.  Stay tuned to our events page for upcoming announcements.

VMworld 2016 – Heraflux in Las Vegas Day 3 (VMworld Conference Day 1)

After an incredible weekend, Monday started off with a bang. We arrived at Mandalay Bay to meet contacts from a strategic alliance to discuss SQL Server virtualization on their platform over breakfast.

After breakfast we attended part of the VMworld General Session to hear Pat Gelsinger and other VMware executives discuss the current state of the company, and strategic direction.  I think many VMworld attendees this year were anxious coming to the conference wanting to understand what VMware will do to stay relevant as public cloud continues to impact the need for on-prem infrastructure (including vSphere).  As a firm with services related to the convergence of data and infrastructure, we are one of the many companies wanting to understand VMware’s role in a growing public cloud world.
