This special ITQ Newsletter is totally dedicated to the VMworld 2017 conferences. The conferences will take place in August and September in which Las Vegas and Barcelona will be the home of the biggest Virtualization events on the planet. With this Newsletter we would like to inform you about the conferences and what ITQ will be doing there.

With over 30 ITQ Consultants attending at either one of the conferences we are again breaking our own attendee record. We are also very proud of the fact that we are on stage presenting at both of the conferences. We have attended VMworld conferences since 2005 and a lot has changed ever since.

The conference has long gone past the vSphere stage, we have entered the Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) Era and VMware has contributed massively on that journey. VMware has added Network and Storage virtualization to their proposition to complete the SDDC, combined with the vRealize Suite they have really lifted the automation level within the Datacenter.

VMware has also contributed to the modern Workspace we are seeing today. The so-called “iPad generation” will soon hit the market. With VMware Workspace ONE, companies can really make a difference and be ready for the next generation of users.

The VMware on AWS proposition, VMware Cloud Foundation and the VMware Cloud-Native initiatives sort-of complete the direction the company is going. We are really excited to go to both Las Vegas and Barcelona and meet the VMware community, talk to the VMware experts and have some Burgers and Tapas while we are there.

See you in Vegas !

Saludos y nos vemos en Barcelona !

Enjoy reading,

Paul Geerlings

I am used to working in Enterprise IT environments since 1997, in technical as well as architect roles. It is my passion to implement new technologies and share my experience within a team. To me x86 virtualization is a synonym for VMware, i have been working with their products since 2004, there simply is no enterprise alternative. The VMware hypervisor was so disruptive back then, one can easily speak of two IT eras, one without and one with x86 virtualization using VMware technology. The next wave we are riding is Software Defined I am convinced this will proof to be almost as disruptive.
