VMworld Europe 2010 in Copenhagen is coming up and VirtualFuture.Info wil be present with both bloggers; Sven Huisman and myself (Matthijs Haverink). For me, going to VMworld was a must because of the following:

A) Networking (meeting new people, keeping in touch with other virtualization enthousiasts)

B) Discovering new products. My company is constantly looking for new solutions and vendors in virtualization space and where better to find and talk to all of them at the same place: the Solutions Exchange of VMworld !

C) Updating my technical and sales skills around (desktop) virtualization products.

But besides that the event is stuffed with great Labs, Breakout Sessions, Super Sessions, A VMware Partner Track and much much more!

I’m really looking forward to the sessions covering VMware View 4.5 and Windows 7 best practices,  sessions about VDI in the SMB segment (small environments/local storage instead of SAN storage) and sessions about how create a real ROI/TCO calculation/Business Case for Desktop Virtualization.

And of course I have to admit that Copenhagen itself drew my attention; I allways wanted to go there sometime.

I know are there are loads of known Dutch bloggers and other community peeps going there and I already have more invites for parties then I can handle so socially I don’t have any worries :).
