In case you hadn't heard yet, another exciting event is happening at VMworld US 2017.  Two of the Godfathers of Virtualization will both be in attendance at this upcoming show.

Bromium co-founders, Ian Pratt and Simon Crosby, are both taking the virtualization pilgrimage to Las Vegas this year.  Ian and Simon are considered Godfathers of Virtualization for their extensive work done in the hypervisor world with the launching of a little project called The Xen Project which had its debut back in 2003.  Xen was originally supported by XenSource which later sold to Citrix in October of 2007.  A few years later, the pair decided to stretch their proverbial entrepreneur legs and leave Citrix to launch a new company called Bromium to address the intersection of security and virtualization. 

For any virtualization old timers like me, I have to say, this is something I'm looking forward to seeing.  And you can too!  Not only can you meet two of the people that started all the x86 virtualization goodness that currently pumps through your veins, but you can also find out more about Bromium and what the pair are doing in this security space to help your company's cybersecurity positioning.

Bromium will be in booth #131 at the show, and they are also hosting an exclusive breakfast with Ian and Simon.  Sign up while there is still space! 

The Godfathers are also available for meetings that week - complete the information here and get a time scheduled.  Ian and Simon love talking security strategy and virtualization, so this is a perfect opportunity to get some face time with them.
