VMT Giving $10,000 Desire State Vacation, Announces #VMworld Booth Schedule GA (Generally Awesome)

Blog Post created by chris.graham Expert on Aug 20, 2015


When we sat down back in March to discuss plans for VMworld, we toiled between two seemingly-opposed extremes: (1) Showing-off the product, and (2) Having a blockbuster theme. Last year, we felt we had a pretty neat theme, but frankly we failed to make central our software. This year, we've devised and executed a concept that not only drives at the very soul of our algorithm, but also wrapped it in a contest that's pretty dang awesome IMHO.


At VMT, we define a Desired State as an elusive state in which application performance is assured while infrastructure utilization is maximized. VMTurbo uses a market-based algorithm that continuously determines Which workloads must live Where When and under What configuration in order to establish a Desired State. Oh yeah, and it automates the actions necessary to maintain a Desired State.


But let's take a step back. What's YOUR Desired State? For me, it's sailing the Caribbean seas with my wife aboard a beautiful cruise ship for 8-10 days - or as long as time and money will permit us. For others, it might be an excursion to Kilimanjaro, a tour across the Hawaiian islands, or an Antarctic expedition. This year, we're giving away a Desired State Dream Vacation (two, actually) to celebrate our customers' Desired States - current, emerging, and yet to be.

There are a number of ways to enter the “Find Your Desired State” at VMworld contest, including:

  • Visiting Booth #505 during VMworld 2015 expo hours and be scanned by a VMTurbo staff member
  • Participating in the “human vs. machine challenge” at VMworld Booth #505
  • Attending our VMworld VIP Cocktail Party at The Drake in downtown San Francisco on Monday, August 31st
  • Registering yourself or a friend for the Green Circle community. All new sign ups through September 2nd will receive an entry
