VMworlds Scheduled Close Together — The Right Move

One of the things I love about virtualization is that the virtualization community aspect is so well defined. I particularly enjoy also that the VMworld events are a manifestation of the community, and that was repeated this week in Copenhagen for the VMworld Europe show. In years past, VMworld Europe has been at a polar opposite on the calendar from the VMworld event in the U.S.; which finished up in early September in San Francisco.

By having the events so close together, VMware and the partners can control timing of news as well as releases. It is an incredible feat to pull off an event the size of VMworld, much less having to repeat the ordeal a mere six weeks later in Europe. By having the same message, announcements, labs and other components that make up VMworld; there is an incredible logistic efficiency obtained.
