Why Neymar should have gone to VMworld!

by Darren Ashcroft

on Sep 19, 2017 10:31:54 AM

There are many reasons why I enjoy going to VMworld Europe in Barcelona and this year was no exception: the weather was warm and sunny; I discovered new gems like a quaint tapas bar hidden down the side streets of the Old Town; wound down post-conference with a glass of Rioja in a beautiful plaza surrounding Las Ramblas; watched a football match at the incomparable Camp Nou alongside the excitable locals; sang along at the Kaiser Chiefs' roof-lifting finale, and rocked the Veeam party of course!
 
However, what I also like is to do is take the time to soak up the new ideas, new technologies, and industry trends that are currently occupying the minds of some of the IT industry's experts and visionaries. Then mull this information over with colleagues, customers, and peers to frame how and when these could translate into your own business plan and strategy.

AWS & VMware: Why You Can Have it All Now

by Alistair Slocombe

Sometimes it’s easy to miss something that is actually right in front of you.

At least that’s what it was like for my colleague (who’s going to remain nameless..!).

He’d attended the keynote at VMworld in Barcelona and was in the VMVillage. In his defence, I think he was a little distracted, presumably he was thinking how great the partnership between AWS and VMware would be for some of our customers. Anyway, he was going to meet me outside in one of the bustling gardens, he spots my table, and quickens his pace, until, that is, he walks full tilt, face-first into the glass wall separating him and I.

A flying start to 2015: VMware NSX Advance Boot Camp

by Andrew Ferguson

on Feb 27, 2015 3:43:00 PM

2015 got off to a great start as Gyrocom announced I would be jetting off to San Francisco, provided I pulled my finger out and passed the VMware VCP-NV exam! The VCP-NV is VMware’s new professional level qualification in Network Virtualisation, or, as it’s better known ‘VMware NSX’. Armed with fuel for thought, I knuckled down and ensured I was the latest member of the Gyrocom team to pass with flying colours… and off I flew!

Micro segmentation is the latest hot topic within the industry, based upon achieving a truly secure enterprise environment. As many modern breaches have proved, a perimeter-centric network security strategy for enterprise data centers is no longer adequate!

The Future of Networking has Arrived

by Ryan Coombes

on Oct 23, 2014 10:57:00 AM

Having recently attended VMWorld 2014 in Barcelona I was amazed at the volume of interest in VMWare's NSX platform. The official NSX launch has been much anticipated by the faithful and boy, we weren't let down! Besides the official keynote launch, there were dozens of workshops and hands on labs to get everyone started.
