What Does StorMagic Have Planned for VMworld 2016? 

As part of VMblog's live VMworld 2016 coverage coming up in a few weeks, we're in the process of working up our schedules to make sure we can see and learn as much as possible when the show kicks off.  And we're extremely excited to visit the Solutions Expo this year.  But with so many vendors exhibiting, how do you know which booths to visit and who to get on your schedule?

One of the companies on our "must see" list this year may be new to some VMblog readers -- StorMagic.  However, this company has been around for quite some time, founded in 2006 by two experienced storage entrepreneurs... they had a vision to find the simplest, most cost-effective way to manage storage infrastructure through software.  More about the company:

StorMagic delivers innovative software-defined storage solutions that empower organizations to virtualize their storage and deliver very significant improvements in flexibility, efficiency and performance. Organizations using SvSAN range from small enterprises with one location to some of the world's largest corporations with SvSAN installed in thousands of sites. We give our customers, large and small, the flexibility to customize and optimize their hardware architecture to meet their specific application and data needs. We make it simple for them to centrally manage and scale their data storage architecture, so that they can focus on running their business.

Like many of you reading this, I've known and followed Veeam for many, many years.  But if you don't yet know or follow Veeam, do!  VMworld is the perfect opportunity to meet them up close and personal.  For most VMware admins, Veeam is probably one of those ecosystem vendors who popped up on the radar screen pretty quickly.  I've become friends with many of their team members over the years, and I've also had the pleasure and been fortunate enough to get to know Ratmir Timashev, one of the most passionate and down to Earth CEOs I've ever met.  Together, this team and company have transformed VMware backup into what they today call "Availability for the Always-On Enterprise."  Oh, and if you're looking for a VMware 2016 Party to attend, Veeam has been one of the premiere party events the last few years, hands down.

VMworld 2016 is only weeks away.  In case you've signed up to attend but fell asleep somewhere along the way, please know that this year's VMworld Content Catalog is (and has been since July 19th) available!  So, if you haven't already done so, go get your schedulin' on.  

I've gone through the entire content catalog (a few times for different reasons) and selected a number of sessions that bubbled up to the top for me -- self-identifying them as what looks like highly relevant and educational sessions (in no particular order or ranking system).  These sessions cut across various aspects of the overarching world we live in -- virtualization, cloud, containers, DevOps, HCI, storage, NSX, etc.

Obviously, this list is pretty long and one person wouldn't be able to necessarily attend all of these as we talked about in the VMworld 2016 Survival Guide.  However, if you're on the fence and still looking around, you might want to consider a few of these sessions.  Take a look and see if any of these fit the bill for your schedule.

Enjoy the show!
