VMworld 2018 US - Day One Keynote

As ever the first day keynote at VMworld was packed with thought leadership, announcements and demonstrations. VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger took to the stage to discuss the super powers of technology, these were cloud, mobile, AI / ML and Edge / IOT. VMware have been slowly enhancing their long term vision of any device, any app, any cloud with intrinsic security and this years keynote further demonstrated that. 

We saw demonstrations and announcements in all areas with the release of vSphere 6.7 update 1 featuring updates for vSAN and more. We saw further demonstration of VMware's close relationship with AWS with AWS RDS (Relational Database Services) being made available on premises via vSphere in coming months. Close integration with vSphere, NSX and Kurbenetes with vSphere PKS and IoT edge infrastructures being treated as a first class citizenship bringing the IT to IoT with a demonstration of vSphere on ARM allowing for true enterprise class features such as FT, vMotion and HA being made available at the edge. 

South West UK VMUG with, HPe and StorMagic

Today’s South West UK VMUG was sponsored by HPE and StorMagic. HPE spoke to the VMUG audience about Infosight their Storage analytics platform included today within their Nimble storage solutions but coming to other HPE product lines in the future. 

StorMagic was one of my favorite presentations they spoken about their virtual storage platform that is designed for small, RoBo and IoT use cases. Their platform is designed to deliver high levels of availability with options for SSD caching and encryption for small virtual environments.  

Here is the doodle.
