Day 2 was even quicker over then Day 1.
It is abnormal of how much cool new stuff I’ve learned that day. This was not only because of all the sessions, but also because of the amazing talks I had with customers, colleagues and other awesome partners. If there is one thing that definitely stayed with me, then it is that VMware is going quicker, faster and harder with all their products across their entire (constantly expanding) portfolio. With constantly releasing new features, acquisitions, and improving specs and integrations they are going amazingly fast. How cool this is for us, it also made me again realize that we and our customers are quite often in phase of transition towards the next big thing. Not in a sense that customers always have to have every product of the portfolio or buy the latest and shiniest new thing, but rather in a sense of these tight integrations and operability. The integrations between the products are going further and are becoming better and better every release again. This is really great and awesome, but it is also really difficult to manage, and can therefor also be really scary. For me, it is clearer then ever that vCF together with VVD will be the best solution for this new challenge. We as a consultant and other partners know it is not perfect, but I truly believe that they are getting there and with that also believe in that vision.
Besides all these cool tech realizations, the biggest highlight of the day was the Benelux party but also the vExpert party. Especially since the big chief himself, Pat Gelsinger, showed up at the vExpert party and even took the time to have a little talk with us. It is unbelievable how great and open this community is, and that a man like Pat, just shows up to show his appreciations for the vExpert community. It makes me love VMware and their beautiful mission even more.
