It's a small VMworld after all – life in the shadow of re:Invent

VMworld 2017 is nearly upon us. The primary event in Las Vegas taking place August 27-31 will be followed by VMware Europe from September 11-14 in Barcelona.

Is VMware starting to mean 'legacy'? Down and out in Las Vegas

VMworld I love VMworld, as I do VMware. In the last few years VMworld has been “the IT show” if the infrastructure space is your thing. However, it is clear that something is changing and it is changing very quickly. Dell-EMC deal First of all, we are still in the middle of the Dell/EMC acquisition. This obviously doesn’t help; it …

VMware VSAN … and the great missed opportunity

Comment One of the most interesting announcements at VMworld was VSAN 6.1. The product is quickly maturing and new features are being added version after version (so here's what’s new). Even though some of the features could easily be disputable – like the 2-node cluster for ROBO, with its workarounds to make it work – VSAN is …

VMware's new VDI play is self-destructing virtual desktops

VMware has announced a new end-user computing product at its VMworld Europe gabfest. Horizon Flex allows admins to define virtual machines (VMs) and deploy them to Macs or PCs, where they run in desktop hypervisors even when those devices are offline. VMware would prefer you use its own Player on PCs rather than desktop Hyper- …

VMware puts VDI in the woodchipper

VMWorld 2014 VMware has outlined a new way to do desktop virtualisation (VDI) that aims to greatly reduce the amount of storage required to deliver desktops from the data centre.

Docker's VMware tryst is about giving sysadmins the whip hand

VMworld 2014 Docker's often been cast as an enfant terrible so talented that it makes mature predecessors suddenly look a bit old, slow and irrelevant. What, then, to make of today's VMWorld news that it is now a VMware partner and will work with Virtzilla, Google and Pivotal to make Linux containers behave under vSphere and Cloud Foundry …

IT blokes: would you say that lewd comment to a man? Then don't say it to a woman

Opinion It’s not news that, being a male dominated industry, women face a lot of challenges working in IT. We have to overcome sexism, stereotypes and sometimes outright harassment.

El Reg's virtualisation desk pulls out the VMworld crystal ball

VMworld 2014 kicks off in a little over a week. El Reg will be on the spot to report on the news, but our preparation for the show means that if we speculate about it next week there's a risk ninja lawyers will emerge and run us through. Today, therefore, is the day for speculation about the show and what we'll see there. …

Yellow-bellied journo dons black tie, sees flip side of VMWorld

Sysadmin blog As I write this, VMworld San Francisco 2013 is two months behind me. I went, I saw, I schmoozed, and I came away from the event unsettled. I had expected the event to be a glorification of VMware – a rich parade of the ecosystem that surrounds it and cheerleading by its users. What I found was anything but. I entered the …
