For all that changes in the tech industry, VMworld has been a mainstay for the tech community for more than a decade. As you might expect, Rubrik is doing a lot (we’re more than double the size we were last year)…which means I’m a bit busy myself but also really looking forward to it.
Rubrik has incredible folks across the board and especially an amazing marketing team especially (who else could pull off Kevin Durant and the party last year?).
From a Tech Marketing perspective, we’ve grown a lot since last year with some awesome TME’s. Right now the team is:
If you’re curious what we’re up to this week or in general, I’ve even got a “Rubrik Tech Marketing” Twitter list. If you find one of us, we might just have some vAllstar cards, cool stickers and maybe even a cool t-shirts with us just for you (no promises – backpacks can only hold so much :-).
Speaking of what we’re up to at VMworld, there’s a lot. Take a quick look through this great post by Mike Wilson – some really cool Rubrik sessions, some wholly community sessions, and some other really cool stuff (swag! vAllStars trading cards! more! ;-).
As well, a huge shout out to my team for owning the lab environment for VMworld this year – a huge amount of work by Rebecca Fitzhugh, Demetrius Malbrough, Mike Preston, and Mike Wilson.
For myself, I’ll be speaking with Jason Nash (SAI3712BUS – link here to register) at 1 PM Wednesday on the ransomware landscape and how Rubrik can help customers – faster detection, immutability, faster remediation.
Aside from that, I’ll also be speaking at the VMUG Theater about Mental Models and how we learn at 4 PM on Tuesday – it’s a fun presentation with lots of stories.
Aside from those, there’s Opening Acts today, various customer meetings and discussions, helping with anything
Looking forward to seeing everyone this week!
