3 Mistakes you Made at VMworld in Barcelona

We know how sad it is but VMworld is over and there is absolutely nothing we can do about it.

Wait, actually, we can do at least one thing: stop and ask ourselves a question: Was VMworld 2013 the best VMworld ever? 

If the answer is yes, you can be proud of yourself and of the preparations your great VMworld team did for the event. If the answer is no, you should probably ask yourself – what went wrong? Don't bother contemplating too hard, the answers are already here. 

1. You didn't have a schedule

 

 

Today at VMworld in sunny and super hot Barcelona more than 800 attendees listened to inspirational speeches on how the software-defined data center is extending the proven model of virtualization across storage, networking and security. 

 

Carl Eschenbach, VMware's President and COO, and VMware's engineering leaders showcased technology that is transforming IT by virtualizing and automating computing, storage, networking and security across private and hybrid clouds. We were there to contemplate the new trends, hear some jokes and get inspired.

Here are some of the best bits from the General Session at VMworld in Barcelona:

1. Nothing can be achieved without powerful software.

IDC recently upgraded their 2020 forecast for storage growth from 40x to 50x of what we have now, saying there will be 6.6 zetabytes of digital stuff, or almost two desktop drives fully loaded with data for every single person in worldwide population then. Not easy to believe? Take a short story for example. Every time I have a lecture on cloud storage for IT pros of financial institutions, I bring my fresh version of the PPT on a USB stick, copy it to a presenter’s PC, make some edits and send it over to a dozen attendees creating up to 20 copies of the original almost instantly. With all lectures past and many still to come, hundreds of copies will end up on peoples’ desktops and in their mailboxes.
