My VMworld 2014 Session Information – US


It’s that time of year again, and what I mean by that is time for the shameless plugging of sessions.  I will have a few things going on this year at VMworld and for the first time I also helped support an Expert Led Workshop for vCloud Air-DR.  So that being said, below is all the things I will be working on so please do consider these sessions for your week.

  • How to Build a Hybrid Cloud – Steps to Extend Your Datacenter – HBC1533 8/25/14 (Monday) 3:30 PM Room 2002

  • Disaster Recovery as a Service (and Cloud Networking) with Chris Colotti – HBC3450-GD 8/25/14 (Monday) 11:00 AM Marriott, Yerba Buena Level, Nob Hill A
  • Meet the Experts – 03 – MTE-03 8/14/14 (Monday) 1:00 PM Moscone West, Level 2, Meet the Experts Lounge


The group discussion has been added to the catalog, but I think as always with the meet the experts you need to sign up in person.  Looks like Monday will be my day from hell for the most part.  Seeing as I get in on Sunday, should make for an interesting day!

vCloud Air-DR Workshop:

This is going to be A LOT of fun!  We do not have a Hands On Lab, BUT we do have an expert led workshop which will be using REAL production vCloud Air, not a vPOD for the DR aspect.  The On Premises will be a vPOD, so if you can get in or on the waiting list, you will have a lot of fun!  I will be there in person supporting this as time allows.
