I was just attended the session this morning talk about the virtual layer security after consolidation, virtualization and cloud computing environment. As many of the users previously adopted to virtualizaton, most of the time the security consideration were minimal due to the technology limitation of that time. But today, vmware and their solution partner had produced large number of solutions available in the market which can help the users to further strengthen the security readiness after virtualization. Example will be vmware vshield edge, application, cisco nexus 1000v, cisco vsg, check point and etc. All these products was focusing on similar thing which try to off load the necessary work load from the current virtual machines to the hypervisor or virtual switch level.

VMworld 2011 – Finally I am HERE

Posted on August 29th, 2011 in Announcement | 1 Comment »

It was a long journey for myself to reach vegas 10 hours ago, which took me more than 17 hours flight in total to reach my hotel . I am very excited to join this event which allow myself to explore many opportunities around the globe surrounding the Cloud and Virtualization. I will try my best to perform necessary blogging during the event, but this may need to check out the internet connectivity in the conference as I do not have the 3G coverage with my Roaming due to incredible expensive rate.

Again, finally I am here and I hope this will not be the first and my last trip to the VMworld event. I always wish there are more to come.

I would like to thank you my bosses who fully support my trip to Vegas and my friend from VMware who encourage me to attend this event.
