VMworld Europe 2009 Monday afternoon

February 23rd, 2009 by jason Leave a reply »

It’s day number two in Cannes, France. Today is Partner Day which is for VMware Partners and Press. It’s an opportunity for both to get an advanced screening and interpretation of what’s to come during the next three days. I am attending the conference as a blogger with the trip partially made possible by Hyper9. I believe I have a press pass, however, the badge identifies me as a “Blogger” instead of “Press”. Apparently there is difference between the two from a conference access perspective but with some help I was able to manage security and attend a few of the day’s sessions.

Being a blogger or press does have its advantages. For instance, right now I’m sitting in a privately reserved room with wired internet access, peace, and quiet. I’m taking care of as much business as I can here because internet access is pretty brutal back at the hotel room.

Although there was plenty of content today, no official announcements until tomorrow. Sorry for that. If you need some cool VMware news to tide you over in the mean time, head over to Duncan Epping’s site and take a look at his announcement about vCenter for the Linux platform.

It’s nearly 7pm and I’m heading out now to dinner with Tripwire and some friends from the VMTN and Twitter community.
