Is April the 24th VMware’s Big Day?

As you probably (don’t) know there’s been a rumour going around that April 24th (or is that the 21st – there seems to be some confusion…!!!) will be big day for VMware.

It’s hard to get an handle on these things – will it be an annoucement of a cloud offering – or will it be an annoucement about vSphere4 (the new name for Virtual Infrastructure). There was a rumour in Canne this year of a big announcement in April, and some people to this to mean that no big announcements were to be expected in Canne. At the moment vSphere4 is on a release candidate – and the Beta Program has not been made public. Personally, I would be VERY suprised if this was GA announcement. So I’m expecting some more cloudiness OR the possiblity that the Beta Program will be made public. Something I wrongly predicted would happen in Canne. Just goes to show how much can trust a bloggers opinons!

Anyway, I’m hoping that as a vExpert (John?) that we will be given some embargo about the annoucement – so we (the bloggers) can be ready to click submit at the alotted time….
