VCE To Shake Up Converged Infrastructure Debate at VMworld In Barcelona

VCE is excited to shake up the debate about cloud infrastructure convergence versus the traditional, run-of-the-mill thinking that pervades trade shows. Just as we did at VMworld San Francisco, VCE intends to defy convention at VMworld Barcelona!

Hear first-hand how VCE is transforming the business of customers in EMEA, including Capita and Skyscape, during our customer panel session entitled ‘Converged Infrastructure in Action: A Customer Perspective’ on Tuesday 15th October at 11:00 am CEST. This session (VCM3522) will include an expert panel discussing real experiences of deploying Vblock Systems, with an interactive Q&A giving you the opportunity to raise individual challenges.

Make sure you also catch my breakout session entitled: ‘A Brave New World: How the SDDC Will Change the Way You Build, Operate and Manage the Data Centre of the Future.’ Attendees may join this session (VCM6608) on 17th October at 10:30 am CEST and debate the future of data centre operations and management.

Attendees are also invited to meet the VCE team at booth 205 and ask us some challenging questions, such as why they should consider cloud converged infrastructures. VCE’s experts will host two 15-minute theatre presentations every hour. There will even be a chance to speak with some of our customers, including Capita and Skyscape, and hear some thought-provoking presentations about VCE’s engineered and converged approach to cloud infrastructure management. VCE’s partners, VMware, EMC, and Cisco, will also give daily presentations at the booth.

Visitors to VCE’s stand at VMworld Barcelona will get a chance to see a live Vblock System 300, as well as five demonstration pods:

1. Come to Pod 1 to learn about workloads and data protection.

  • Comprehensive backup, disaster avoidance and recovery strategy

5. Lastly, don’t forget Pod 5 to learn more about VCE Services.

Finally, VCE’s imaginative and fun Twitter contest to win a Vblock building kit comes to Europe for the first time.  You only need to build a mini figure and tweet a picture of it, a Vblock System, and #VblocksRock!

So there you have it, there’s lots for us discuss. See you in Barcelona!
