vExperts, vExperts, vExperts…win, win, win…Datrium goes Galore at VMworld 2017!

Another VMworld is upon us, and I couldn’t be more excited about attending the conference with Datrium. Datrium technology excites me as much as Hyperconvergence did five years ago, and VDI did ten years ago   ...and Datrium is going big time for this VMworld.

Suffice to say that the team at Datrium formed part of the founding teams for VMware and Data Domain. Data Domain revolutionized the enterprise storage industry by introducing deduplication technology, and VMware does not need introductions. Diane Greene and Mendel Rosenblum, VMware founders themselves, are early funders at Datrium. Maybe they will do a cameo appearance?!

We have recently made some awesome announcements as part of our Lithium (code name) payload, including RedHat RHV support, Docker Volumes, and Data Services for Container (see all here). However what is to come over the next couple week will be incredibly bigger than these previous announcements. We will announce something never seen before in the tech industry!


It will be Galore!!!


But the announcements are only in the next couple weeks, so for now, let’s talk about VMworld. Please, come and learn about Open Convergence, it’s new, it’s exciting, it’s disruptive!!!!

All Datrium and Open Convergence Sessions


At the end of the day, it is all about the conference sessions and the networking. We have plenty of Datrium sessions discussing not only our incredible product and features but also addressing the overall effort in creating a new breed of converged architecture that we call Open Convergence. We have sessions from Monday through Thursday.





If you just want an introduction to Open COnvergence to understand the fundamental architectural changes to the architecture and how to benefit from it, my sessions will cover that without (I’ll try my best) any marketing slides or pitch. Come by, Thursday morning to this community session – it’s only 15min, and I’ll do my best to keep within the allotted timeframe. This session will also have a live webcast, and I’ll share the link as soon as I know.


  • An Introduction to OpenConvergence
    Thursday, August 31st, 11:30 am – 11:45 am
    Session Code: VMTN6619U
    Speaker: Andre Leibovici, VP Solutions and Alliances, Datrium (that’s me!!)
