VMworld General Session, Day 2, Tuesday August 27th, 2019: VMware Tanzu demos, and new CTO announcement!

Day 3 of VMworld 2019 in San Francisco is underway, and it is the second day of General sessions. Clearly today’s theme is Kubernetes, and VMware’s Ray O’Farrell kicked off the keynote by talking about VMware Tanzu and Tanzu’s mission control.

The Keynote then included the integration of NSX-T with Tanzu. The ability to test changes, to see the impact on the environment before going live, was truly amazing

There was also an interesting demo with VMware Horizon and Workspace ONE, showcasing the usage deploying work spaces rapidly from the cloud, and creating zero-trust security policy withing workspace ONE with Carbon Black

Pat jumped up on stage to announce that Ray O’Ferrell (@ray_ofarrell) would be leading VMware’s cloud native apps division, and Greg Lavender (@GregL_VMware) was named the New CTO of VMware.

VMware also announced a limited edition t-shirt that would be given away later that day. VMware had roughly 1000 of these shirts made up, and luckily I was able to get a shirt before they ran out.

Plenty of people were upset about not getting a shirt due to the limited run. Gives a whole new meaning to nerd rage…. (sorry I couldn’t help myself).
