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.

As vmworld 2016 comes to a close here is a wrap up of what you missed.

While at VMworld 2016, VMblog takes part in a great customer case study discussion between Velostrata co-founder and CEO, Issy Ben-Shaul, and Velostrata customer, Sandisk. The pair discusses how Sandisk became a customer, the business problems they were trying to solve before working with Velostrata, the short and long term business benefits Sandisk has received by using Velostrata, and more.
Founded in 2014, Velostrata provides software solutions that give enterprises cloud workload mobility. Velostrata's founders realized that many of the issues that kept enterprises from adopting public cloud for production workloads centered around the risk, cost, time, and complexity of migrating storage. So, they asked the fundamental question, "why not decouple compute from storage?"
