VMworld 2013 - Day 3 Recap

Day 3 at VMworld 2013 did not include a keynote session, so there is not much in the way of new products or announcements to talk about in this update.  Our engineers have been busy attending breakout sessions, soaking up knowledge on VMware NSX (network virtualization), storage enhancements in vSphere 5.5 (VSAN, vFlash, Virsto), vCloud Suite best practices for upgrades and operations, and what’s new and next in VMware’s end user computing vision.

Yesterday on day 2 of VMworld, I attended a deep dive session on Veeam Backup and Replication 7.

They are completely agentless, entirely virtualization focused, and they provide 26 restore options from a single backup.

Since we covered the high points on these yesterday, I’ll spare you the repetition. Here is what I thought were the highlights of the keynote:

VMworld: The Smartest Guys in the Room (vCloud, not Enron)

Posted by Imran Ahmed on Wed, Sep 01, 2010 @ 11:25 AM
