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.We’ve also spent time interacting with vendors in the Solutions Exchange – some of which have been long standing Clearpath partners, like EMC, Cisco, Veeam, Zerto, and HotLink. We’re making sure to take the time to evaluate new solutions from up and coming companies that are offering tools for management and automation of hybrid cloud environments.
If you are interested in reading up on some of the new technologies we’ve been checking out this week, here are some links that we’ve found helpful:
