Getting our Hybrid Cloud Fix at VMworld

Posted on August 26, 2013 by Adam Burnham

As Markley Group’s Cloud Services Architect, learning and sharing as much as I can on virtualization and hybrid cloud practices is incredibly important for our company and for our ecosystem. This week, I will be attending the industry’s foremost virtualization and cloud computing-focused conference, VMware’s VMworld in San Francisco.

VMworld is a place to interact with industry influences in the storage, server, data center and cloud computing space, as well as to fit in a jam-packed schedule of learning opportunities that aim to demystify how virtualization and cloud computing can help companies spend less time and money supporting underlying IT infrastructure and more time on areas that yield business and competitive value.

The conference is expected to have a big focus on hybrid cloud – it’s even rumored that VMware will officially launch its vCloud Hybrid Cloud Service. As Brandon Butler from NetworkWorld reported, “VMware executives have been talking a lot about the offering, but there are questions that still need to be answered, such as where will the offering be hosted – in VMware data centers, or in those from partners?” We look forward to learning more about the offering, how Markley Cloud Services will complement it, and how it fits into the IaaS industry landscape.

Overall, the conference always sheds light on many aspects of IT transformation by virtualization – security, automation, networking, SDN, and more. I’ll be there soaking it all up to ensure Markley is constantly transferring the leading industry knowledge, trends and best practices

to our partners and customers.
