Getting Ready For VMworld 2016

 Expertise, security and simplifying your journey to the Software Defined Data Center

VMWorld 2016

Next month, Rackspace descends upon VMworld 2016 at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas on the heels of whirlwind of product development activity. Our support, product, sales and marketing Rackers are preparing to showcase our extensive VMware expertise and to deliver exciting announcements about upcoming VMware-based offerings from Rackspace.

What excites me the most about attending VMworld every year? It’s the opportunity to present a uniquely practical and pragmatic flavor of conversation with other VMworld attendees — a rarity on the floor of most software conferences.

As a 2015 VMware Partner Innovation Award winner and a leading VMware vCAN Managed Service Provider, we not only talk to folks about what VMware is capable of, we also share how Rackspace architects and engineers help our customers make VMware’s Software Defined Data Center vision a reality.

Upcoming Announcements: No Spoilers Here

We’ve been hard at work figuring out ways to make VMware’s SDDC components easier for our customers to consume and evolving our Rackspace Managed Security offering to better meet the needs of our VMware customers. Look for specific details about what’s coming in the announcement at the show.

Some of our best VMware minds will share the knowledge gained from operating Rackspace’s Server Virtualization offering, one of the largest VMware vSphere footprints in the service provider world, in the sessions below:

In addition to the formal conference talks, learn from and engage with some of the most seasoned VMware architects in the industry at abbreviated technical talks in our booth on the expo hall floor. A handful of the Rackers in attendance are published authors. The following authors will be available for book signings at our booth:

If your team has an interest in learning how Rackspace’s single-tenant, hosted VMware solutions and our army of experts can help you realize the potential of the VMware SDDC, we’d love to hear from you and set aside time to meet at the show. Contact us at to schedule time.

Make sure you stop and chat with us at booth 2401 to hear more about our upcoming offerings, engage with our experts about the problems you face or just to have your portrait taken by a caricature artist.

See you in Vegas!
