VIDEO: Mike DiPetrillo speaking on VMware vCloud

by David Davis on June 18, 2010

On June 11 I attended the Charlotte Regional VMware user group (VMUG) meeting where lots of “vCelebs” spoke about VMware and the future of virtualization. One of sessions that I made sure to attend (and record) was Mike DiPetrillo of VMware (his blog is at Mike has been with VMware 8+ years and is a Principle SE there where he is a vCloud evangelist.

One of the most controversial parts of Mike’s presentation is when he says that vCloud is really sold to the CIO and the message to the IT group is that you will have to change in order to keep your job. In other words, “the cloud” will assimilate the infrastructure as we know it and IT people will have to adapt to that, improving their skill set, in order to move to different roles in the IT organization where they can accomplish the more important IT projects with real ROI (not just maintaining the SAN LUNs, or whatever they do). Watch the video to hear the vCloud message for yourself… Note: Mike doesn’t show a “Project Redwood” demo – sorry.
