Then later meet up with some EMC folks, specifically @davegraham and folks from @sakacc group.

Vmworld 2009: San Francisco

August 27th, 2009 No comments

So a pretty exciting week ahead, Vmworld 2009 begins on Monday. This is my first time at VMworld, and I am quite excited to attend.

We are working on some pretty cool technologies around Virtualization and Storage and would really like to understand and spend some quality time with the Vmware engineers understanding the new V-Sphere and other Clould – Virtualization services.

We get thrown in some very complicated implementations of virtualization both internally and externally (services to customers) and successful implement it or sometimes stumble and learn. This would be a good chance to talk to some very smart people in the industry to build contacts to reach out to and also talk to some Vmware engineering folks about some existing issues.

Also looking forward to hanging out with the fellow mates from Twitter and bloggers from the Virtualization – Storage Blogosphere, try to relate faces to the extraordinary news and blogging activity we see from all of them.

Looking forward to spend some time at the Expo (Solutions Gallery) talking to the exhibitors about the technology and services they provide in this vertical market space and how we can further leverage those to grow our technology solutions practice.

I will be accessible by twitter @StorageNerve at all times and also plan to blog on StorageNerve the entire event on a daily basis (time permitting). Looking forward to seeing a ton of people from the industry, various customers and fellow twitter mates….
To get the highlights of VMWorld 2009, visit StorageNerve everyday from the 30th August, 2009 through the 4th of September, 2009. Look for tag Vmworld-2009 ( on Posts.

Stay tuned for pictures, videos from Vmworld 2009.
