EMC Forum Chicago, Architecting for the Future and slide decks shared!

March 16th, 2010

Yea I know I’m a bit delayed… and most of you who attended the EMCForum in Chicago have probably gotten an email with all of the decks, but there may be some of you who missed it, and who otherwise couldn’t attend, so check out these decks!

Disclaimer: I was asked not to publish this data until a week after it was released, so I honored that (and then got busy the month after the Forum, so the lesson is.. don’t embargo me ;))

If you’re anything like me, you’d love some of these slides which were published, and if not.. well, here are some rocking slides! Two in particular which really speak to most organizations as a whole!

Architect for the Future Key Programs Leading to Private Cloud

However, there were so many sessions to speak of, so make sure you go and download the respective slides and decks you missed!

So, for those who enjoyed the EMCForum in Chicago, I know I did! It would take me hours to walk a few feet, but it was great to see old friends, new friends and more!

If you find yourself still missing some details from the Forum, don’t hesitate to let me know and I’ll get those details taken care of for you!

37,000 Desktops called and they want their VDI back

December 4th, 2009

If you knew how many various different titles I thought through before deciding on that one, you might say ‘You have too much time on your hands!’ though seriously, I went through thousands of options in the minute I thought about this.   The point of this is – Did you know that a company which owns a considerable amount of VMware actually eats its own dog food when it comes to Virtual Desktop Infrastructure?  Yea if you’re like me, your thoughts around VDI are “Show me who’s doing what, what they’re doing right, wrong, and what are some practices we can discuss around this”  Some people say “Check out my reference architecture!” Yea, That’s all fine and dandy – But show me the names, show me the real people.  I want to see the scars that people went through so I can make sure YOU don’t have to encounter those same scars when it comes to VDI.

What’s cool about this (video) and this particular site image is that these are real people, talking about their real journey and challenges encountered along the way – So you have something real and concrete to take away from it.

What is really cool about this, is this site – discussing EMC’s IT’s Journey through Virtualization is it covers the whole stack – Server, Virtual Desktop, Consolidation, Management and Automation, and especially Private Cloud.   This isn’t a pipe dream – This is a transparent view into what is really physically going on within a large company, so you can relate it to your own business.  We’re all going through the same challenges economically, managementwise, and management and power consumption aren’t going to go down on their own!

So, check out the site/blog, and you may gain a better understanding that you are not alone in the challenges you face, and you may just learn something! :)
