Please consider voting for my VMworld sessions

I have 2 sessions in consideration for VMworld 2010 in the Virtualization 101 track. The first is a deep-dive session on vSphere features, I’m the curious type and always have to know how things work behind the scenes. As a result I do a lot of research trying to figure out the technical magic behind features like VMDirectPath, VMCI, Fault Tolerance, DVFS, etc. Once I have a firm understanding of how things work I can better explain it to everyone else so they can understand it as well without having to do all the work I did to find out. The second session is on home labs and small vSphere environments. I’ve had a lot of experience recently with different home lab configurations and done a lot of research on supported configurations, hardware and shared storage options. I’ve gone from building a powerful desktop to use with VMware Workstation and running ESX/ESXi as VMs to using low-cost brand name servers running ESX/ESXi bare metal. For a pretty affordable price I’ve built a pretty cool lab that any VMware admin would enjoy having. So if you’d like to hear more about either topic head on over to the VMworld website and vote for me.

Title: Deep Dive on Virtualization – How stuff works in virtualization
Session Id: V18268
Abstract: You may use virtualization everyday but do you really understand how everything works behind the scenes? This session will provide deep dives into the many features of virtualization so you may better understand them and be able to use them more effectively. In this session we will cover things like paravirtualization, hardware virtualization (CPU & chipsets), VMDirectPath, Trusted Platform Module, Dynamic Voltage Frequency Scaling, VMCI, CBT, snapshots, ESXi anatomy, virtual machine anatomy (hardware/files) and more. This session will provide a better understanding of some of the more complex features of vSphere and those that rely on specific server hardware. Attendees will learn the mechanics behind these features with technical deep dives that go beyond the product documentation which only tells you how to use them and not how they work or why you should use them. For those that are curious about how everything works in virtualization this session will give you a much better understanding of the technology so when you go to use a feature you will know exactly what is happening, requirements and the benefits of the feature. In addition the deep dives into the anatomy of ESXi & VM’s will provide you with information that will allow you to more effectively troubleshoot and administer them.

Title: Building an affordable vSphere environment for a lab or small business
Session Id:V18328
Abstract:“This session will cover how to build a vSphere home lab or an environment for use in a small business. It will cover the following areas: 1) How to choose the hardware, including white box hardware, brand name hardware, network components and storage 2) What the hardware compatibility guide means and the consequences of using unsupported hardware 3) Making sure the hardware you choose will work with vSphere 4) Using VMware Workstation to run nested hypervisors and virtual machines 5) Using ESX or ESXi to run nested hypervisors or virtual machines 6) Installing ESXi on to a USB flash drive 7) How to choose and use affordable shared storage devices 8) Using free ESXi and free administration tools to manage it 9) Using the affordable Essentials editions to gain big features at a reduced cost 10) Putting it all together to make a virtual environment”
