This event is wrapping up now. Quite an impressive interface with keynote speaking, virtual labs, Q&As, and many other features I didn't get a chance to explore. Looked like a SIMS game.

The keynote speaker, VMware CEO Patrick Gelsinger, spoke about how cloud providers should all be able to get along. He discussed NSX at length, saying that NSX can act as a connective layer between competing clouds like Azure and Amazon Web Services.

He also mused about a business model of shipping full installed appliances out to datacenters. He added that "The application has become the network" and discussed how this presents new security challenges. As an analogy he said, it's easy to protect a house but not so simple to protect a city. However, he concluded that rather than overfocusing on securing virtualization, we should be trying to virtualize security.
