Building Your Cloud With vCloud Director

Below is a recording of the session I did in January 2012 at Gillette Stadium with Paul Lembo called “Building your cloud with vCloud Director”.  I finally got a copy of the session and wanted to share it for those that did not make that event.  It was well received and thanks to Chris Harney for getting me the session video.  It takes a slightly different approach than the one done at VMWorld and Partner Exchange.

One thing that was really funny about this session, is that the stadium apparently pipes the audio into the restrooms.  I found out later that many people thought I was in both the Men’s and Ladies rooms just talking to myself.  I guess you had to be there, but it was pretty funny to find that out after the fact.  As we know the Patriots did beat the Ravens, but we won’t talk about the SuperBowl outcome.  Be sure to scroll past the video to grab the slides in PDF format.

  1. It’s great to see the two of you pose for my photo right in the last seconds of the video.  It was a great presentation to see live.

  2. Nice whirlwind tour!  John K. linked this to our VCI community to support our partner VCIs.

  3. Excellent! Thanks for sharing. A few lightbulbs definitely came on. Thanks for making a point to real world examples and business requirements/constraints. It keeps the topic more engaging. I set a reminder to watch this again in 6 months.
