Cloud City and VMware: May the Virtualization Force Be With You
VMware’s CTO and Senior Vice President of R&D Steve Herrod hosts a series of video interviews with the talented members of his company’s development and engineering teams, in addition to creating videos to explain complex virtualization and systems management concepts. The series is titled Office of the CTO and is worth subscribing to on YouTube.
This week’s video features a fictional account of Cloud City, a well-known location in the Star Wars movies, as a new VMware customer. The Chief Private Cloud Architect, Chewbacca shares how VMware freed up Cloud City IT from a static and rigid infrastructure, too many trouble tickets, and lots of wasted storage. It also has a walking tour of the VMware campus, which looks like a great place to work too.
Bottom line: It’s great to see a company so rich with technology expertise take an unpretentious approach to explaining how they deliver value to their customers, making us laugh at the same time.
