In the keynote sessions there are/where several Beta and early access programs mentioned for the VMware innovations.Beta’s are excellent if you have access to a lab, and some are available as a hosted beta program if you happen to miss resources or such. Get an early look, play, try and break. But do also comment, discuss and return feedback.
So where are those Beta’s? I have tried to put up a list of the mentioned Beta program URL’s for your convenience (okay started for my own reference, but I can share ;-)).
