VMworld 2012 is rocking San Francisco this week.
Sunday opened with the Welcome Reception in a packed Solutions Exchange exhibit hall. Our exhibitors were out in force, and didn't fail to pass out the chotchkies with an abundance of t-shirts.
Monday's keynote in the general session was jam-packed with customers, partners, press, analysts and bloggers. Over 20,000 attendees gave Paul Maritz a standing ovation as he formally transitioned to Pat Gelsinger the leadership of VMware. Pat announced the vCloud Suite, the industry’s first, integrated, most comprehensive offering delivering on the software defined datacenter, and Cloud Ops, the new operating model for the cloud era.
After the general session, people migrated over to the Hang Space to listen to the #vBrownBag Tech Talks and theCUBE interviews, and to watch the social media stream on the big board.
We are gearing up for a great day tomorrow, where the general session will focus on end user computing and will be streamed live.
