VMworld Live 2011: Your Cloud, Your Computer, Watch It Live on theCUBE

Earlier this year, SiliconANGLE and Wikibon barnstormed 5 tech shows in 5 weeks, reaching more than 2 million views of our live CUBE programming. We’re back at it and Wikibon is once again pleased to be a part of the SiliconANGLE.tv and VMware production of VMworld Live from Las Vegas. We have an amazing lineup to discuss the future of virtualization, cloud, big data and mobile technologies. Here’s a glimpse of what’s coming next week:

VMworld was one of our biggest events last year and 2011 will be even more exciting. The goal of The CUBE is to bring independent perspectives to live events and share knowledge with the SiliconANGLE and Wikibon communities. As you can see in the graphic above – we will be interviewing a lot of the big name guests from VMware, top ecosystem partners, CIOs and technology practitioners. We are also introducing “Trending Spotlights” where we will drill into various technology areas with a mix of deep dive sessions and panels with experts and thought leaders.

VMware’s tagline for the conference (hashtag #vmworld on Twitter): VMworld 2011. Own it. Your Cloud. 

We’ll be using the #thecube hashtag for videos that we post and conversations around the event.

Where to watch: SiliconANGLE.tv (replays of all videos will be made available on this site – never any registration required)
