Live from VMworld!!

Hi folks, yup, I’m at VMworld this week. Sounds odd, huh? What exactly am I doing at VMworld, you ask? Great question. Preaching the gospel, brothers and sisters, preaching the gospel. KVM, that is…

Ok, maybe I’m laying on a bit thick. Seriously though, Red Hat has 2 booths back to back this year at VMworld – one labeled “Red Hat” as one would expect, the other labeled “Ansible”.

Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of folks at the show that won’t give us the time of day, and that’s alright. There are plenty more that come by  see demo’s of RHV. And get the shirts, hats, and stickers. Here’s a pic my colleague Jonathan G. took while I wasnt’ paying attention:


And we’re having a good time answering all the questions..

What better to follow that up with than a preview of the Red Hat Virtualization Manager? Seriously, there have been so many updates and improvements, I can’t wait to dig in..

Let’s go! Continue reading “Preview of Red Hat Virtualization Manager”
