Interop Tokyo 2014 ブースの舞台裏

VMware Japan Cloud Infrastructure Blog

こんにちは。VMware のやまもとです。 6 月 11 日 ~ 13 日に幕張メッセで開催された Interop Tokyo 2014 の VMware ブース の準備の裏側について、回顧録がてら書き連ねていきます。 今回のブースは、大きく3つのソリューション(Software Defined Datacenter,Software Defined Network, Software Defined Workspace) に分かれてチームを組んで準備に挑みました。 なかでも、私の参画した Software Defined Datacenter チームはブース展示全体を支えるデモ基盤を含めて準備するというかなり大がかりなものです。そのチーム内でもソリューションによって5コーナーに分けて小チームを編成するというチーム編成からすでにVirtual なNested 構成です。 vSphere Core Technology Software Defined Storage (VSAN) Management Automation Hybrid Cloud これらの展示内容については、随時このブログで連載させていただきますので請うご期待ください! チーム編成は16名の得意分野も普段の業務も全くバラバラなシステムエンジニアで、通常業務の合間に準備を進めました。 この、&#rdquo;通常業務&#rdquo;っていうのがかなりのミソで、弊社システムエンジニアは一般的に言うところのかなりワークロードの高いいわばモンスターVM的な業務量なので、全員が自分の業務とこの準備をうまく人的Distributed Resource Scheduler で分散させるというのはかなりの高度な技ですが、全員がうまくやりくりして参画しました。 この16名がはじめて顔合せを行った時点で、既に開催まで1ヶ月を切っていました… この種類のイベントに展示を出されたことがある方ならどなたでも容易に想像がつくとは思いますが、通常は展示内容のコンセプトとテーマを確立させるのに1ヶ月は余裕でかかります。そこから構築までのスケジュールを考えると専任のメンバーを確保して2ヶ月前にチーム全体での顔合わせと役割分担を決め始めるのが無理なくできるスケジュールだったりします。 しかし、弊社で

Bridging Worlds with Technology

Office of the CTO

Chris Sexsmith is a Staff Solutions Architect in Vancouver, BC. He works with the GTS team in VMware’s Global Center of Excellence developing and delivering integrated architectures and solutions. Technology has a fascinating effect on humans. It can shape behavior, bring seemingly disparate worlds together and reinforce bonds between people and teams. I witness this constantly in both my professional and personal life. A short time ago, I spent a few hours teaching my father how to use his smartphone. This may be a familiar experience to many of you reading this. I was, admittedly, frustrated at first…and second…and third, but then I realized this little piece of technology was bringing our worlds closer together. As the weeks passed by, the frequency of the support calls had not diminished, however the urgency and panic inherent in those calls certainly had. &#rsquo;My email disappeared!!&#rdquo; had transformed into &#rsquo;I found this little app that tells yo
