VMworld 2019

VMworld world is around the corner, just 1 week left until all the fun kicks off.

This year, I’m honored to get a blogger pass for the best tech event in the world! 
VMworld is a very deverise event, which is fundamental for my role als a VMware architect.

Breakout sessions

Many bloggers have published there top X breakout session list. So here is my top 5:

  1. Achieving Enterprise Comfort with vSAN [HCI2344BU]
  2. Extend Your Hybrid Cloud Strategy to the Edge with VMware Edge Solutions [EIOT2750BU]
  3. How GPU-Assisted ML for Medical Research Proved to Be a Force for Good [HBI1546BU]
  4. Optimizing vSAN for Performance [HCI1757BU]
  5. A Practitioner’s Guide to vCenter Server Architecture [HBI2227BU]

These are the session where I’m interested in.

If you are a consultant or system administrator and want some more ‘practical’ knowledge, I highly recommend the following breakout sessions:

  • vSphere Performance Troubleshooting and Root Cause Analysus via ESXtop. [EDU2111U]
  • vSphere High Availability: Recommended Practices for VMware vSAN [HCI1870BU]
  • Troubleshooting Performance Issues with vSAN performance Diagnostics [HCI1619BU=

Solution Exchange

Between breakout sessions, you can find me in the Solution Exchange (SOL). This is the place where I spend most of my time. 
Almost every breakout session is recorded and can be viewed online after VMworld. Of course, some breakout sessions you want to attend, just to feel the vibe in the room or to see a specific speaker. But the information, which you can find in the SOL, can’t be viewed online afterword. 
The SOL in VMworld US is almost 6x bigger than the SOL in Europe. This is one of the reasons why I fly to Las Vegas.
Some solution found in the SOL in VMworld US aren’t even GA, so speaking to these vendors, learning about their products and point of views on VMware products, strategies and solutions is essential for my role as an architect. 

Hope to see you there! And if you want to meet, give me a ping. I always like to meet new people!
