From the editors virtual desk

Hi everyone, it really is starting to feel like the countdown to the end of the years festivities has begun. With all of the holidays coming up there is no end to the sales and other promotions going on it seems.

 

From a VMware perspective we are nearing the end of our Roadshows in many of the regions, with VMworld Europe and US completed as well as vForum in Sydney and other parts of Australia. These are amazing events that draw such a broad audience all interested in different aspects of what VMware has to offer.

 

Have a fantastic week everyone, if you are attending any of the final vForum events in your region for the year I wish you a fantastic time and look forward to receiving your feedback from the event.

 

Virtually Yours
