The VMware conference season may have warmed up with the Las Vegas event, but the crowds are coming to Barcelona to keep the announcements and community goodness going! Our Turbonomic team will be featured in the Expo Hall in Barcelona to bring our autonomic platform to the European event.
We are very excited about our recent rebrand and how well we were received at VMworld in August. The ability to present our new brand and our UK team at the Barcelona venue is one that we have been looking forward to all year!
Putting the EU in EUC
We often see the news around the End-User Computing platforms being front and center at the European event. This may be because of an increased use of desktop virtualization by the audience in attendance, or it may just be a way to separate the announcements from the North American event in August.
There were some updates mentioned at the Las Vegas edition of VMworld which would indicate that more is coming around a lot of the mobile and desktop virtualization portfolio. Cloud Foundation was clearly one of the top focus areas in VMworld in August, so we may see some content around tying the ecosystems together as well.
More Photon Details
Between Photon, Photon Controller, and vSphere Integrated Containers (VIC), there is also a rather distinct lean towards embracing the container ecosystem by the virtualization juggernaut. Not much was said in Las Vegas around these ecosystems other than a lot of “look for more announcements soon!” and some minor updates to the Github repos indicating that beta programs are progressing.
As we have been supporting containers with Turbonomic since the early days of Docker, this is exciting for us to see a new potential integration with our already fully-featured VMware coverage. As Photon looks to become a real product, we will be preparing to add open source scheduler plugins in the same way that we have done already for Kubernetes, Mesos, and Mesosphere. More development on great open ecosystems is helpful for the entire industry to drive more innovation and adoption.
