The last installment...sniff...from F5's Frank Strobel at VMworld in Barcelona:



One man's end is another's beginning...

While VMworld EMEA 2012 came to an end today, something else saw its first light: @F5VMW

The latest member to the F5 Twitter family was created to allow you - our valued user community - to better follow all news related to F5 and VMware. So, if you are not a follower yet, this is a great time to become one. We will be sharing updates on new solutions, new product integrations, tips & tricks including the latest from F5's own DevCentral, and - last but not least - updates from events such as VMworld, VMUGs, and many others.

One of our first tweets from @F5VMW was a retweet about Charlie Cano's breakout session which took place today: Solving the Application Provisioning Nightmare: Integrating vSphere and vCloud Director with Your Application Delivery Networking Services (SPO2069).

Together with Adina Simu from VMware, Charlie gave a repeat performance of this session from VMworld in San Francisco earlier this year. F5's deep integration with the vCloud Ecosystem Framework (vCEF) through VMware Ready for Networking & Security allows for an easier, automated, and seamless deployment of Application Delivery Networking (ADN) services by means of API-level communication between F5's management solution and VMware's vShield Manager. The ability to easily deploy vApps and the associated application delivery services in vSphere or vCloud Director using iApps has created a lot of interest with the VMworld attendees, both during the breakout session and during conversations at the booth.

So, while we say adios to Barcelona, we won't have to say farewell. Rumor has it that we will be returning to this beautiful city by the sea next year...
