As part of our VMworld 2020 coverage, VMblog visits with Rick Kilcoyne, Chief Technology Officer and Grant Ho, Chief Marketing Officer at CloudBolt Software, an enterprise leader in cloud management and integration solutions.
In this video, we discuss trade shows like VMworld becoming digital events and what that means, how companies have moved to a work from home lifestyle, and how CloudBolt operates with VMware as a partner. Watch and learn as Rick and Grant explain more about the company's technology, and offer a view into the product.

CloudBolt integrates with a great myriad of technologies in many different categories, with more integrations being added in every release. However, the defining characteristic of CloudBolt's integrations is not their breadth, but their depth.
For IT administrators, it is not enough for their cloud platform to have surface-level integration; it needs meaningful, substantive support for other technologies so the IT organization can provide a fully-automated self-service experience to their internal (and sometimes external) customers.
One illustrative example is CloudBolt's support for VMware. I will list all the ways in which CloudBolt's suite of offerings, including CloudBolt's cloud management platform (CMP), SovLabs and CloudBolt OneFuse, integrates with VMware. The main takeaways are that CloudBolt has the most complete integration with VMware of any cloud management platform, and without all of these features within the integration, the IT team will be left to handle situations manually. The full benefit of automation is only realized when the integration goes this deep.
The net effect of having this depth of automation for and integration with VMware (and other on-premises virtualization systems) is that IT teams have their private datacenters leveled up with functionality traditionally relegated to the public cloud - self service provisioning, management, and decommissioning of environments by end users without IT's intervention, modeling cost tracking and implementing shameback/showback, policy-based features such as order approval workflows, enforcement of expiration dates for resources, and power scheduling for VMs to ensure systems do not consume resources when they are not needed.
VMworld 2020 goes digital. Will you be in attendance? If the event were physical, I would have looked forward to visiting with CloudBolt Software. So we reached out to them digitally instead.
With the current pandemic, we're seeing a lot of changes taking place in our normal, everyday lives -- both professionally and personally. One of those changes is the end of physical trade show events as we move to socially distance ourselves from one another. While some trade shows simply cancelled or postponed until 2021, others have made the switch to a 100% digital format. VMworld, the world's largest virtualization and cloud computing event hosted every year by VMware, is one of those shows -- enter for the first time ever, VMworld 2020 Digital.
While a physical VMworld event would normally have north of 150+ sponsors, a digital VMworld event won't be able to effectively support that number of sponsors.
