See you in San Francisco!


VMworld 2009 San Francisco is right around the corner!



This week we're highlighting the session: The Path to COS-less ESX: Migrating Server Operations from ESX to ESXi



VMware ESXi is the next generation hypervisor architecture from VMware, offering improved reliability, security, and a simplified operational model. Due to the superior nature of ESXi, VMware will discontinue the classic Service Console-based ESX in the near future. If you are a long-time user of ESX and have developed your management procedures around the Service Console, then come to this session to learn how to migrate to a new, improved operational model. We will show how to adapt your process for all aspects of management, including: hardware monitoring, backup, systems management, user management, logging, troubleshooting, and more. You should be able to leave this session armed with the tools necessary to be prepared for the transition to ESXi.

If you're still looking for reasons to attend VMworld 2009 in San Francisco, then you've come to the right place.  Three of our VMworld alumni have posted great blogs about why you shouldn't miss VMworld.



if gte mso 9><!endif><!if gte mso 9><!endif-->*Jase McCarty: VMworld is about bringing people together to


learn about virtualization.  Whether they are consumers, solutions

providers, or vendors.  When VMware puts on VMworld, it isn’t just about

the sales aspect.  The breakout sessions and technology labs are a really

big deal.  Where else can so many different sessions on how to use

virtualization, best practices, and training be found?  Nowhere.                                                     Read more of Jase’s blog: http://www.jasemccarty.com/blog/?p=265


*Sven Huisman: I’ve attended VMworld a couple of times know

and the interaction you get with other attendees, IT-professionals, VMware

employees and on the solutions exchange is really priceless!                                                       Read more of Sven’s blog: http://virtualfuture.info/2009/07/why-attend-vmworld-during-financial-crisis/


*Thomas Bryant: Beyond networking, is the solutions exchange.

Working for an ISV, of course you should stop by our booth !http://www.vmworld.com/images/emoticons/happy.gif!, there are a ton

of companies that are new each year. Walking around, seeing all the new faces

and new technologies or old tech reinvented is really invigorating. It's

overwhelming at times considering the sheer size of the hall and all of the

vendor swag to get.                                                                                Read more of Thomas’ Blog: http://blog.thb3.com/2009/07/why-go-to-vmworld-2009.html

VMworld 2009 Exhibitors

Posted by VMworld Team Jun 26, 2009

VMworld community –


Let us set the record straight on any vendor exhibit issue.


VMware is totally committed to continuing to make VMworld the leading virtualization conference in the world, highlighting the rich, diverse ecosystem that is the virtualization marketplace.  Just to be clear, the exhibitor sponsorship contract we are using is standard across the industry.  Nothing out of the ordinary or meant to limit the value of VMworld.


As you'd expect, Microsoft and Citrix have already signed up and will of course be participating in the conference this year, as well as hundreds of other companies.


We encourage companies to exhibit and participate that compete with us in one fashion, but complement us in others.  It’s all about customers and community!


The VMworld team is hard at work putting together final touches on the show.  We are expecting a great turnout and look forward to seeing you in San Francisco on August 31!
