VMworld 2014 Europe

This year I’m lucky to have a Bloggers pass for VMworld in Europe. For me this is the 6th time that I will attend VMworld. And as every year I’m really looking forward to go. Not only for the technical sessions, but also for all the good friends I made over the last few years and the interaction with VMware staff/employees and partners.

I just finished building my schedule and wanted to share my highlights with you. The sessesion who I really looking forward to are:

  • STO2496 – vSphere Storage Best Practices: Next-Gen Storage Technologies
  • STO2197 – Storage DRS: Deep Dive and Best Practise
  • NET2745 – vSphere Distributed Switch: Technical Deep Dive
  • EUC2039 – Horizon 6 Storage Architecture Concepts: Designing for success in 2014

I’m planning to write a short blog post about these session. Maybey not in that week but very soon after.

The first few years I booked my agenda full with session. After 2 years I discovered that talking with vendors on the solution exchange can also be mind blowing. Of course there trying to interest you in there products, but after the sales talk you can ask question and talk to technical people how you see there product and how you can use it in your environment.

Some vendor that I en-course you to look at are:

  • PernixData The have a great product for accelerate your storage with local flash or SSD
  • Login VSI The have a nice product for load testing your VDI environment
  • Nutanix Nice solution for a converged infrastructure solution
  • Simplivity Also a nice converged infrastructure solution
  • F5 Nice load-balancer for you Horizon View enviroment.

Go and talk to them, you will be surprised!
