Fall is in the air, which means VMworld is back in sunny Barcelona. Coming off the heels of VMworld San Francisco a little over a month ago, VMworld Barcelona promises to feature all the latest advancements in virtualization and cloud computing that were announced at the US event. More than 8,000 IT professionals are expected to attend to soak in the breadth of education needed to stay on top of the latest IT virtualization trends and best practices.
Themes like NSX network virtualization, vCloud automation, and big data are expected to dominate exhibit floor demonstrations and presentations. And while some believe the notion of hybrid clouds and network virtualization are still a ways off, Silver Peak is actually delivering virtualized network services with its Agility software (integration with VMware NSX), which we will be demonstrating again at VMworld.
Silver Peak is one of a select few VMware network virtualization partners, and what’s really pioneering about Agility is being able to redirect traffic from one VM to another VM, and in particular from any workload to a Silver Peak VX software instance, providing a data acceleration service where everything is completely in the software domain.
We will showcase this and our other virtual data acceleration and replication acceleration solutions in booth #E427 at the event.
Silver Peak CEO David Hughes will also jointly present with VMware in session TEX5667 on Monday, Oct. 14, 3:15 pm – 4:15 pm titled, “VMware vCloud Ecosystem Framework for Network and Security Enables Network Services Virtualization.” In this session, attendees will learn about the need for network services virtualization and its use cases in a software-defined data center. Attendees will also learn the business benefits of integrating virtual network services into a virtual data center or cloud infrastructure.
VMworld Europe is being held October 14-17 at Fira Barcelona Gran Via in Barcelona.
