This year for me personally has been extremely busy and eventful coupled with a great deal of learning.
Without wishing to bore the pants off of any would be reader I shall summarize my ruminations as someone whom is still quite new to the VMware world.
The first thing that comes to mind is a a couple of recent meetings I have had with VMware. Learning that they are now very keen to engage with ’the rest of us’ and by that I mean those of us working in SME’s as we represent well over 50% of their business revenue. For me personally this was excellent news as we have already invested heavily into the VMware product range and plan to carry on doing so in the future. The recent release of VMware suites was a good step forward but I still feel they need to do a lot better in communicating to SME’s about their vast (and ever increasing) product range as there are many gems that can often go unoticed. Our discovery of vCops earlier this year was a good example of this.
