vSoup Podcast & Tech Field Day 6

I had the pleasure, about a week ago, of recording an episode of the vSoup podcast along with a few of my distinguished peers in the virtualization world: Ed CzerwinChris Dearden and Christian Mohn.

I mentioned the idea of lending my time after listening to a recent episode with my doppleganger (or doppelgangee?) Sean Clark. Sean and I were fellow delegates at one of the recent Tech Field Day events, and as it turns out the guys from vSoup and I will be delegates for the upcoming Tech Field Day 6 in Boston, focusing solely on virtualization companies and technologies.

We are all looking forward to the event. So please have a listen to the podcast and get warmed up for Tech Field Day – Boston, next month. This will undoubtedly be another “can’t miss” event for virtualization in 2011, leading up to the penultimate which is: VMworld 2011 – Las Vegas!

Tech Field Day 5: RFQ

Request For Questions

I just have a quick post for the final Friday before Tech Field Day 5 next week. I was thinking to myself about what questions I might have for the sponsors and formulating my list, but since this is my first time, I thought it might be worthwhile to ask my readers what questions they would like asked/answered. (Please respond in the comments section below).

I will compile these questions and submit them to the sponsors during the conference. If at all possible, I will try to get them answered on camera and then post the responses here with credit to the submitter.

Presenting Sponsors

Symantec, Data Robotics, Xangati, NetEx, Infoblox, HP

Thanks!

Gonna Have a Field Day!

Announcement

I am very excited to announce that I have been invited as a delegate for GestaltIT’s Tech Field Day 5 next month in San Jose. It will be great to get back to California to meet with some of the technology companies that I admire as well as some very smart individuals that I met at VMworld 2010 and follow on the various technology blogs. I think the mix of attendees will make this the best Tech Field Day thus far!

I know there has been at least one attendee from Asia (Australia specifically; shout out to@rodos), but I am hoping to get/give a unique perspective from/to the proceedings, being an expat working and living in Japan.

Japan’s IT Market

A lot of you may know about Japan’s cutting edge televisions, video games and anime, but when it comes to “business” technology, Japan is both a unique and stubborn market. There is the sense that a company will choose 1 technology vendor and go to them for ALL of their IT services and hardware/software, despite that there may be a better/cheaper foreign vendor out there, or even another vendor within Japan. Thus it is very hard to crack the Japanese market.

I think with the recent changes in the Japanese economy and the need for global outreach to sustain the aging population, things will change little by little. I am hoping to be a part of this change. I hope to help introduce more and more companies to the Japanese market and break the language barrier that exists between us. It’s only a matter of time till we reach critical mass!

Presenting Sponsors

Until I have had an opportunity to hear the presentations from the sponsors, I can only ask that you please check out the sites of the vendors that are schedule to present at this event. I am doing likewise, so I have a bit of background and understanding before I hear what they have to say.

*Look forward to more in-depth articles about the presenting companies following Tech Field Day, next month.
