Dell EMC The Source #101: VMWorld 2017 Solutions Exchange

The VMworld 2017 Solutions Exchange featured over 220 sponsors and exhibitors showcasing their ideas and technology of tomorrow.   The Solutions Exchange was not only a perfect opportunity to showcase Dell EMC, front and center as always, the expo was also an opportunity for Dell Technologies to showcase how our efforts are shaping our customers Digital Transformation. And in addition, the Xcape Room, IoT showcase and VDI Complete Solutions expo provided ample opportunity to explore Dell Technologies solutions.

There was more than enough time to explore; and as is now tradition, Adeel Omer (@GeekInAustin) and I spent some time walking around the Solutions Exchange doing our best to capture the moment.

Dell EMC The Source Episode #100: VMworld 2017 State of the Union

VMworld 2017 Keynote Day 2 was loaded with “Pivotal” announcements, from Pivotal Container Services (PKS) to VMware on Amazon Web Services. What does it all mean? I spent some time with “Chad” @Sakacc following his annual, and much anticipated, State of the Union Breakout Session.

Like last year, this episode is a bit longer than normal. It includes Chad’s full breakout session “State of the Union: Everything multi-cloud, converged, hyper-converged and more!”

Dell EMC The Source #99 – Disney Data and Analytics Conference – Big Bad Data

Big Bad Data meets Wickedly Good Analytics, that’s the theme of #DDAC17 the Disney Data and Analytics Conference.

Dell EMC, along with our partner Nvidia, sponsored the conference and spent most of our time talking with customers about the challenges of Big Bad Data. The Dell EMC Booth focused on the entire solutions track from Pivotal Application Development and Analytics to 14G PowerEdge Servers optimized for intensive data process and Dell EMC Isilon as the backend repository for massive amounts of data.

I spent some time with Dan Baskette (@DBBaskette), Technical Marketing Manager Pivotal, April Berman, PowerEdge Acceleration and Memory, and Thomas Burns, CTO Dell EMC Media and Entertainment Division.
