Cannes, France – (The Hosting News) – March 6, 2008 – Virtualization solutions provider, VMware, Inc. recently held the first annual VMworld Europe conference, in the Palais des Festivals et des Congres, in Cannes, France, where over 4,500 attendees and close to 100 sponsors attended.
The event featured presentations from industry experts and virtualization end users. Attendees had the chance to exchange information and ideas about how organizations around the world are building, managing, and benefiting from virtualizing increasingly more of their datacenters. The conference is business-focused but with a decidedly technical slant, as VMware TSX Europe, the company’s annual technical symposium, has been incorporated into the show to bring together customers, partners and technologists at the leading edge of the industry.
Mark Stradling, Vice President of EMEA at VMware noted, ”VMware is very excited to bring VMworld to Europe,” said “Virtualization is transforming computing — both in the datacenter and on the desktop — and VMware continues to pave new ground as the virtualization industry leader. This conference is a great opportunity to bring our customers and partners together for what is sure to be a rewarding, educational, and inspiring experience.”
