VMworld: To Las Vegas and Back

There was some major positive energy at VMworld Las Vegas last week, and RES had a great time being a Gold sponsor at the event. Attendees were eager to learn about the technology vendors in the Solutions Exchange, and we had some great discussions about how RES Software can enhance VMware View deployments, especially in hybrid desktop environments where multiple delivery platforms and devices are introduced to users on a daily basis.

Our booth (#927) wasn’t hard to fine. We had a great location on the expo floor right next to VMware…and our bright orange signage brings a nice pop to the show floor. Check out our facebook page for more pictures. Here is a short recap of our time in Vegas:


Our talented Solution Architects were busy throughout the show providing demos of the capabilities of the RES product suite and how our solutions could help attendees make the most of their VMware View environments and hybrid desktops. We even had some flying RES monkeys that caught a lot of attention from attendees.

Our breakout and theater sessions were very successful too, and we were happy to have some great attendance. Both sessions focused on IT as a Service. Check out the session summaries below.

Delivering ITaaS today with VMware Technology (SPO3998)
Took place on Monday, August 29, 9:30am

RES veteran Bob de Kousemaeker and RES newcomer Jeff Wettlaufer showed attendees how high degrees of automation can be achieved in a client service model. They demonstrated how you can experience a truly dynamic desktop empowered with flexible self service capabilities. Finally, Bob and Jeff presented a deployment strategy for you to utilize TODAY to get started with a rich analysis of your existing desktop landscape (enter the free online service, RES Baseline Desktop Analyzer). Watch the breakout here.

Our theater session, ITaaS and Dynamic Desktops, took place right on the expo floor on Wednesday, August 31, from 9:10-9:40. Attendees learned how the RES product line can help them introduce ITaaS in their organization, from automation and workspace management to reverse seamless. Watch the theater session here. We even gave away one of these bad boys to a lucky member in the audience:
