Rackspace At VMworld 2014: Managing All The Things

Rackspace VMware experts will be out in full force next week at VMworld 2014, as we take to San Francisco’s Moscone Center to showcase how Rackspace manages all the things through Managed Virtualization, Managed OpenStack and Managed Cloud.

VMworld runs Sunday, August 24 through Thursday, August 28. Let’s dive right in and see where you can find Rackspace VMware experts throughout the event.

BREAKOUT SESSION
Rackspace Virtualization Architect Luke Huckaba will present VMware® vCenter™ Site Recovery Manager™: Architecting a Disaster Recovery Solution form 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Thursday, August 28. The session will be in Moscone West room 2020.

THE BOOTH
Our Rackspace VMware experts will be in booth No. 2205 on the expo floor to answer any and all VMware-related questions you may have. Did you know we are the largest VMware service provider in the world with more than 45,000 VMs? Come by the booth and hear all about it – and much more.

There will be in-booth demos Monday, August 25 through Wednesday, August 27. RightScale will present RightScale® Enables Orchestration across Rackspace Managed Clouds each day at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. We’ll be giving free Starbucks gift cards to attendees who watch the demos.

Also in the booth, we’ll have a caricature artist Sunday, August 24 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., Monday, August 25 and Tuesday, August 26 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Wednesday, August 27 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Rackspace will participate in the Hall Crawl on Tuesday, August 26 from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m., swing by our booth and enjoy free beer and wine.

We’ll also have some cool giveaways at the booth – you can enter and win a basket of cool gadgets, which will be awarded at 4 p.m., Wednesday, August 27. And we’ll be giving away “Managing all the things” t-shirts during booth hours.

And during the welcome reception Sunday, August 24 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., pop over to our booth for a chance to snag a wristband for the exclusive VMunderground party later that night from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m.

OTHER AWESOMENESS
Our VMware experts will also be on-hand in the Service Provider Pavilion throughout VMworld 2014.

And if you need a lift during the event, we’ll have Rackspace pedi cabs around the Moscone Center. Get off your tired feet and hitch a ride in style. Pedi cabs will run Sunday, August 24 from 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., Monday, August 25 and Tuesday, August 26 from noon to 6:30 p.m. and Wednesday, August 27 from noon to 5:30 p.m.

We’re pumped to be heading back to VMworld this year to talk about how Rackspace can help you manage all of the things in your business. We can’t wait to see you in San Francisco.
