Announcing Sponsorship of VMunderground at the 2016 VMworld US
It’s no secret that one of the most valuable things about the VMworld conference is the ability to network with your peers. With so many other folks around who are tackling challenges in the data center, the ability to hear their stories and pick their brain has a high value. Plus, some great friendships can be forged – some of my favorite people are those I met at a previous VMworld! One hallmark of the show is the VMunderground event. It’s a gathering of folks before the chaos begins – a chance to meet and mingle before we are all run ragged with announcements, sessions, keynotes, and other technical delights. I first attended this event when it was held at VMworld 2011 in Las Vegas at the Nine Fine Irishmen. And guess what – it’s back at the same venue! The other snazzy thing about VMunderground?

Pump up the Excitement – VMworld Approaches!
Has it really been a year already? Apparently so, because another gauntlet of VMworld conferences approach and is bristling with energy and excitement. The Rubrik team and I will once again be embarking on an adventure to tour the Las Vegas and Barcelona events, spreading some serious amounts of knowledge, heavy-hitting swag, and a plethora of other surprises. This year, with thanks to our swelling customer base and buzz around making data protection “not suck,” we’ve set the bar to ludicrous speed with a Platinum presence and all the trimmings that goes along with that. I’m stoked! Earlier, I blogged on Wahl Network with an outline of sessions in which I’m excited to present with the likes of Duncan Epping, Kyle Ruddy, Chris Gurley, and Eric Shanks. If you’re interested in learning more about Rubrik CDM, data center automation, PowerShell and PowerCLI scripting, vRealize Automation blueprints, or vRealize Orchestrator workflows – and you’ll be at either of the VMworld events – you’re in for a treat! Stay tuned for even more epic details as we get closer to the VMware event of the year! 🙂
