VMworld, so much to do, so little time

Posted by: Eric Siebert
Eric Siebert, VMware, VMworld

Either someone needs to invent a time machine or VMware needs to make VMworld a two week show. There is just way too much to do at VMworld and not near enough time to do it. Sleep is always the last thing on my priority list at VMworld; I was lucky to get about five hours each night. There...

Eric Siebert, VMware, VMworld

VMware seems to be intent on virtualizing anything it can these days, so when is VMware going to get around to virtualizing VMworld? It would be great if VMware could take its annual physical conference and transform it into a virtual conference to reach a much larger audience. After all...
