Event: VMworld ’13 To Kick Off Today!

The 10th annual edition of the VMworld,  the annual showcase cutting edge virtualization technology including cloud computing is scheduled to kick off today amid much fanfare in San Francisco.

VMware Inc, the organizer behind the event, is hoping for the grandest of assembly in terms of technological advances as virtualization, or “software defined” networking as some put it since it became the hottest trend in the IT market in recent times, reports the Wall Street Journal.

This year’s conference is estimated to attract over 22,000 visitors and some of the major market leaders are rumored to make breakthrough announcements within the span of the 5 days of the conference.

VMware, majority-owned by EMC Corp, made use of a concept titled virtualization what allows for a layer of software on server systems to facilitate multiple operating systems and applications.

Companies, especially the small and medium enterprises are using it throughout the world to save money as more work is getting done from their servers while computing jobs are being completed within minutes.

So why is this conference so important for the cloud technology, and virtualization in general? Joe Skorupa, an analyst at the research firm Gartner Inc has the answer for you. “It’s about separating the intelligence from the hardware, making the network programmable,” he says.

This conference is perhaps the biggest window for some of the smaller companies to portray the technologies and gadgets that can attract customers while bigger companies like Cisco, Microsoft and Oracle are vying to grab the biggest chunk of the market pie.

The event is likely to feature a number of major keynote speeches as well, with VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger speaking at the inaugural ceremony about the next generation of technology and the way the IT world is heading.

VMware President and COO Carl Eschenbach, along with engineers from the company would present the latest innovations in virtualization from VMWare on the third day of the event, though the company is yet to unveil the technologies it would present at the conference.

On the second day, VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger, New York Times best-selling author and noted technology futurist Paul Saffo will moderate a distinguished panel of C-level IT leaders about the challenges virtualization and cloud technology faces in the upcoming future.

Here at CloudTweaks, we keep an eye open for the latest news and updates from the VMworld as we bring you the scoops as they happen. Also, as always, our in-house expert Steve Prentice will be bringing you the insights and expert opinions from the VMworld.

Hold on to your hats folks, because the VMworld 2013 is about to kick off.
