As part of VMblog's live VMworld 2015 coverage coming up at the end of this month, we're getting our schedule ready to learn as much as we can, as quickly as we can. But with so many vendors exhibiting at the show, how do you know who to get on your schedule and which booths to visit?

I was glad to hear that Zenoss, a company in my backyard of Austin, will again be showcasing their wares at VMworld. These guys are really fun and interesting! And they've got some really great technology in this space. Back in May of this year, I had a really good deep dive into their products since I attended the company's first ever Zenoss GalaxZ User Conference. One of the big takeaways from this user conference was how much Zenoss values its customers. And I was also exposed to the company's "Own IT" mantra.

Zenoss technology delivers a quick and precise insight into potentially affected services so you can fix the problem before your business and users are impacted. You’ll know what events are putting your critical services at risk, and you’ll have the right context and information to act faster to resolve the prioritized problems before your services are impacted. They also help you stay ahead of the curve by uncovering trends and patterns to help you optimize your IT resources and plan capacity more effectively, a critical capability required to keep your services running. And, you’ll be able to quickly scale horizontally and vertically to handle your hybrid IT environment.

Get Zenoss on your schedule, and make sure to ask them about their ZenPacks! Find out more ahead of the show by reading the below Q&A interview with the company:

As part of VMblog's live VMworld 2015 coverage coming up at the end of this month, we're getting our schedule ready to learn as much as we can, as quickly as we can.  But with so many vendors exhibiting at the show, how do you know who to get on your schedule and which booths to visit?  

This year, I'm excited to meet a new vendor to VMblog --  CloudGenix.  The company is leading the way in a very interesting segment of the market - the software-defined wide-area network (SD-WAN).  The company is transforming legacy WAN's into a radically simplified, secure application-defined fabric, and virtualizing heterogeneous underlying transports into a unified hybrid WAN.  They control application performance on the network based upon application performance SLA's and business priority.  And CloudGenix ION simplifies how WANs are designed and managed, enabling customers to build Networks without Networking and achieve more than 2x the performance at less than half the cost, leading to a much faster time-to-value once deployed and extends datacenter-class security to the network edge. 

Definitely looking forward to this demo and discussion.  And you should as well.  Make sure to add CloudGenix on your schedule.  To find out more ahead of the show, check out the below Q&A interview with the company:

Today’s virtual environments are complex beyond human scale.

Face it. Today’s virtual environments have reached a new level of complexity and scale. You’re either drudging through dashboards and reports to figure out the fix for one alert or another—or, you’ve thrown money at the problem and you’re over-provisioned.

VMTurbo is the only solution that processes the infinitely complex interdependencies of resource management decisions for you.

It analyzes all placement, sizing, and capacity possibilities across your virtual environment. It then determines what decisions will drive your environment to its desired state—assuring application performance while maximizing the utilization of the environment.
Let the software do the work; you can start solving real problems.
