General Session 1 vmworld 2012 Barcelona October 10, 2012Posted by vbry21 in VMworld 2012 Barcelona.
Today 9th October 2012 was the first general session at VMworld Barcelona 2012.
The session opened with a very impressive music number, the vmworld 2012 sign on the stage had drums built into it and we were treated to a rather energetic drum and music number.
Pat came on stage and as the new CEO of VMware introduced himself and informed us all of the direction for VMware, this direction is rapidly moving towards the software defined datacentre.
When I started in VMware we virtualised CPU and memory, now with current and soon to be released products we will be able to have CPU, memory, disk and networks as resources that can be virtualised and distributed to our service users.
The other interesting concept that was put forward was the automated service provisioning of Virtual Machines.
Steve Herrod then came on stage and talked us through the new products that will give us his Software Defined Datacenter
Rather than repeat Steve’s presentation I have included the link to his Blog
On the above link you’ll find lots of useful information on the many new products included in the vCloud suite.
I was particularly interested in vFabric, which rather than having a VM template will allow us to applications via Blueprints, so we can pick an operating system and then pick which applications to install.
Tomorrow we will have another general session with Steve.
