The second year of TheVirtualist.org and the second presence of some of the team members at the VMworld in Barcelona.
Like a year ago, many interesting announcements, breakout sessions and mainly networking interlocks and meeting old friends happened during our stay in Fira Europa.
The main topics orchestrating the future for the industry could be listed as:
- Automation; of monitoring, operation, capacity management. Maximum of interventions to be done by the technology autonomously as per defined policies.
- Openness; for the other suppliers to invent and connect the pieces that are missing from vendors of the base infrastructure to extend the user needs and plug-in functions that come handy to particular industries. Developers, developers, developers would say Steve B. are in focus. To create variety of features and integrate.
- Flexibility; in how the virtualized workload will be treated and used. I’m speaking about containers and the way how new vSphere is able to handle it – at the same level as the virtual machines. This comes along with development of the Photon OS that’s making the platform for the Docker to be operated as a single entity in the virtualized infrastructure.
- Security; yet simplicity for enterprise clients whose executives demand the same user experience learned from using popular public solutions with strict surveillance over not exposing critical business information.
Also, some of our members were no more only observers of the event but actively participated … as exhibitors of a expertise-as-a-service for vSphere www.runecast.biz or as promoters of a crowd-knowledge-fueled comparison of technologies available to virtualized solutions www.whatmatrix.com setting the way to new and innovative projects.
And some more photos … see you there again in 2016.
