I’ve looked through the whole VMworld Content Catalog and picked out my top 20 sessions that I feel are worth seeing and I thought I would share it with you. A few disclaimers though:
- There is no way you are going to be able to see 20 sessions at VMworld, so pick the ones you like most and have the speakers you’d like to see in person and prioritize those. Watch the recordings of the others afterwards.
- I’m a bit biased towards storage sessions, but hey storage is pretty damn interesting these days.
- I’m also a bit biased towards the sessions I’m presenting in, so that’s just me but I’d love to see you at them and we’ll do our best to give you a great educational session.
So now in no particular order (well maybe a bit alphabetically as that’s how the Content Catalog is listed), but I’ll start with mine though. First up is a great deep dive on VVols replication, this one will be super techie and deep and we promise not to put you to sleep.
Next for security geeks, this one sounds interesting as to how software-defined is changing the way we think about security.Now we go the the clouds, I’m sure AWS will be a hot topic at VMworld this year, who better to hear about it from then Frank & Emad.
Now it’s vSAN time, there are like a billion vSAN sessions at VMworld so you can easily overdose on them. I thought I’d pick out a few of the more interesting ones like this one from VMware’s storage godfather.
Next what do you know, more vSAN, at least you’ll know 10 more things about it after this session, and hey it’s Duncan and Cormac, that’s all you really need to know.Now we go back to security, this one looked like a good overview on VMware’s impact on Windows security which we know is the world’s most secure OS 😉
Next there is the Rocky Mountain Way and then their is the VCDX Way, if you are upgrading vSphere you probably want to do it the VCDX Way.
Next more security, I forgot to mention I’m really into security also. What do you get when you combine a security geek with a vSAN geek? Why this session, should be a good one and you can leave feeling much more secure about yourself and your VMs.
And finally let’s end on a storage session packed full of all sorts of best practices, because you always wanted to know the answers to the ultimate vSphere storage questions (spoiler: it’s 42). You can tell this one will be popular as it’s scheduled on 2 different days.
