Tough decision where to fly next week, if you’re interested in cloud computing. Two top international cloud conferences are on:
- VMworld 2011 will be held in Las Vegas from August 29 till September 1. Locations: The Venetian & The Wynn.
- Dreamforce ‘11 will be held in San Francisco’s Moscone Center almost at the same time from August 30 till September 2.
Both sound good, but consider the difference in philosophy: VMworld will convince you to own your cloud, where as Dreamforce will show you how to let others work the cloud for you.
When visiting VMworld 2011, you’re set to learn about the latest virtualization technologies and strategies which can help your organization realize its’ vision for a cloud computing approach to IT.
