So we’re off to San Francisco next week to attend the VMworld conference at the Moscone Center to hear all about the latest developments from VMware.
There seem to be a lot of exciting developments in the pipeline, and there are a few things we hope to be enlightened on while we’re there.
- vCloud Director next major release
- When is it coming?
- What features can we expect in GA? We’re hoping to see:
- Storage Tiering
- Snapshot capability
- More end user control of vShield Edge (load balanding configuration etc)
- Site Recovery Manager – there have been rumours of integration between SRM and vCloud Director – we’re intrigued to find out more…
- Project Octopus – much anticipated and discussed at last year’s VMworld – we want it, when can we have it? Hopefully we’ll get an update and an idea of launch dates…
- VMware IaaS – there have been a few rumours flying around about VMware launching their own IaaS cloud (http://www.crn.com/news/cloud/240004995/vmware-poised-for-public-cloud-splash-but-partners-still-reeling.htm) giving some partners cause for concern – we want to know more!
- Have Bon Jovi still got it? You may ask ‘Did they ever have it?’ – They’re headlining the VMworld Party, so we’re going to find out!
Hopefully we’ll get the answers to these questions and more – we’ll post what we are allowed to next week!
