I've just take my place in the blogger/press/analysts area in order to attend the Tuesday general session here at VMWorld.
Pat Gelsinger, VMware CEO, will discuss the next generation of IT and how the software-defined data center is extending the proven model of virtualization and automated management across storage, networking and security. VMware is helping businesses extend the software-defined data center to the hybrid cloud, and in this session we will hear from customers who have used virtualization to become champions of next-generation IT in their own organizations.
General session location is filled up!
First to speak is Mr. Maurizio Carli celebrating 15 years of VMWare and the continuous journey in transforming IT.
