We finished up VMworld yesterday. It exceeded my expectations in every way. The conference was well executed, and the party was even really fun (these kinds of things are often lame!). Of course, the important part was that xVM made a big splash. We had a steady mob of people coming through the booth the whole week to see what was going on. People couldn't believe Sun was showing off all this powerful software (Hypervisors, Management Tools and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure!). We're going to have a lot of follow up to do after the show.
We had two sessions at the show as well. Our VDI session by Chris Kawalek was packed (so packed in fact that I didn't get any video). There were 400+ people at that session and people kept coming to the booth afterwards referencing it! I did however get some good video from our panel session on the xVM portfolio. Below are some short bits from Achim, Bob and Mike discussing various pieces of the technology.
Thank to all the great Sun folks who came out to the show and worked at the booth. It was a huge effort, but it was a great way for us to complete our launch week for the new products and to let people know more about our existing ones.
