VMworld 2010 Awards Winners

First of all I would like to congrats all the VMworld 2010 Awards Winners.  You have really worked so hard for it & you definitely deserve it. Before sharing the winners list I thought I will share a good funny story I had yesterday. Two hours before declaring the winners I have got an e-mail from Tina at VKernel as follow:

Hi ~

Just a quick update that our new Capacity Management Suite 2.0 is in the top 3 for the VMworld 2010 Best of Show in the “Virtualization Management” category.

Hope you make an opportunity to download it and try it out for yourself in the lab.

In 2 hours we learn who the winner is, but we are of course excited to be in the finalists out of 35 contenders.

Stay tuned!

After reading the e-mail, I had a feeling that VKernel had a gut feeling that they will be the winner before it was announced. It was a nice touch from them after they won they have sent another e-mail thanking all the bloggers and customers who supported them. Well Done VKenel. Veeam seemed to be the most finalist for this year, well done Veeam. Well Done for all the VMworld Winners below is the full list of VMwolrd 2010 Awards Winners below:
