I dropped in on the xVM Roadshow yesterday in Broomfield, and I found out a few things.
Celia Cattani, who's one of the sales folks for the Western U.S. and Canada, put the whole event together and lead the discussion. (That's why the roadshow is only a Western-US thing sofar; Hopefully the rest of the world will follow soon.) She introduced the portfolio, and then kicked off demos of each product.
One of the interesting things was that, in the demos for both Sun xVM VirtualBox and Sun xVM Server, they created a guest. In both cases, it was a wizard with a few steps, and was done in a couple minutes.----
I was also surprised by some of Sun xVM VDI's capabilities. I've been using it on a SunRay for a while, but I didn't know it could be used through a browser. I'll have to get one of the Sun xVM VDI writers to talk about it on the blog.
Another interesting thing is that either my camera stinks, or I'm a terrible photographer. I suspect both.
The Sun xVM Ops Center demo was pretty cool, although it's hard to give a tool like Sun xVM Ops Center a demo in a few minutes.
The audience also had quite a number of questions. I'll be posting those as well, but they'll get their own post.
