VMworld's Many Stages

The vBrownBag team did an incredible job, giving stage time to dozens of end users and vendors. The Infinio team were proud sponsors of that hard work.
Two of us were up on stage to share technical content and have great videos to share:

Honored To Be In The Community
We want to offer a well-deserved thank you to the vBrownBag team for their hard work. Infinio was a proud sponsor and the team looks forward to more opportunity to contribute.
