VMworld was fun, informative, exhausting. The coveted vmSight Virtualization
Superhero bobblehead dolls -- likenesses of Superman and Batman -- caused our booth to be constantly overrun, and in general there was just a tremendous amount happening both on and off the show floor. I know the projections were that attendance was up 30% or more from 2007, but personally I noticed that many more attendees clearly were further along with virtualization projects and therefore there was increased discussion about issues and solutions. Particularly in the area of desktop virtualization, vmSight's key area of focus, VMworld further validated what we've seen all year, namely that organizations have educated themselves and are actively moving from pilots to deployment.
We conducted a survey at VMworld of over 120 organizations that have deployed, are piloting or are planning virtual desktops, and over 100 organizations that are using or planning application virtualization hosted on virtual servers. We gathered some very interesting data from the survey that I'll publish in coming posts.
