Wishing I was at VMworld Barcelona

Headshot 100X100.jpgBy Calvin Zito, @HPStorageGuy  vexpert 2012 logo.gif


I would love to be going to VMworld in Barcelona but I need to stay at home.  My daughter has a trip of a lifetime - her senior trip to Italy.  My wife, who was born in Naples, is going too and they will do some personal sightseeing before the rest of the class joins them.  So I'm happy to take one on the chin for my wife and daughter so they can have a great time in Italy while I stay home with my son (because Boise State does have two home games while they're gone!).


VMworld in Barcelona goes on without me (the nerve!) but I wanted to highlight a few things going on there. 


In the booth!

When talking about VM density, Barcelona seems to be a suitable place. It is arguably one of the most crowded cities in Europe! Almost 16.000 people per sq km. For comparison: New York City has about 10.300 inhabitants/sq km and Boise has cute 1.245 folks per sq km.
