The VMworld 2010 diaries

VMworld 2010 has come and gone. As usual, it was a whirlwind of nonstop action that ended way too quickly. This was my third VMworld, and I can honestly say that this conference was the best one by far.

Last year’s VMworld attendance was approximately 12,500, a decline from 14,000 in 2008. This year, however, attendance was much higher, with more than 17,000 people. The record attendance seemed to surprise even VMware, but it’s a good indicator that the economy is on the mend and IT budgets are opening up. It’s also proof that virtualization is as hot as ever.

Despite the high attendance, VMware handled the crowds fairly well. As always, VMworld was spread across the north and south wings of the Moscone Center in San Francisco. But VMware also reserved Moscone West, which provided a nice space to house the hands-on labs. The labs were set up differently this year, so more people could use of them. And they were self-guided with no instructors.
