VMworld 2020 – Session Picks

This year has been tough, but luckily time is flying by. VMware's flagship event, VMworld, is just a few weeks away! Due to everything, VMworld is virtual this year, and most of the content is free to check out. There is a Premier Pass, which will get you 1 on 1 sessions, workshops, and the certification discount you typically get with a VMworld pass.

There are some 774 (and growing) sessions that will be available during this event on the free pass! Have you registered yet?

Why the #vCommunity is important to me

..and other vExperts.

A little overdue, mostly because we were still hunting down 2 lost videos; sorry Abdullah & Joep!

During VMworld Europe, I was invited to present on VMworld TV for the second time (god knows why) and had a two-fold mission: put a spotlight on some of the vExperts and ask them why the VMware Community (#vCommunity) is important for them and ask them for advice for people wanting to become a part of it.


The reason is quite simple; when I was pulled into it by some people I looked up to, … Read more

It's that time of the year. VMworld Europe is rapidly heading for us and the schedule builder has been opened! If you're going to VMworld for technical training and are planning on visiting breakout sessions, keep the list below in mind.

These picks are based on the presenters and knowing they have a good story and some inside knowledge that they're going to be awesome. For instance, Accelerate App Security and Availability with vRealize Network Insight [SAI2555BE] is … Read more

VMworld – Making the most of your time

VMworld Europe is next week! This is always the highlight of my year, mostly for 2 reasons: 1) all kinds of awesome new virtualization technology is either announced or released, and reason 2) my favorite; the best minds of the virtualization community gather and share thoughts, learning from each other. In the last 7 years I've attended VMworld, there's a few things I picked up and I wanted to share.

There's a LOT to do

If you wanted, you could fill up about 6 months full time with all the content that's available on VMworld. The tricky part is that … Read more

The Future of Virtual Networking from VMworld – Part 2

Following up on my post The Future of Virtual Networking from VMworld - Part 1 (read that before starting this one), I’m going to continue rambling on about some of the awesome future networking ideas floating around during VMworld.

Disclaimer: this post is also based on public roadmap information divulged by VMware and can be subject to change. Also, some of this is my interpretation of the features.

Distributed Load Balancing

With traditional load balancing, network traffic goes through an appliance (physical or virtual) before it connects to the actual target (load balanced server). This is set up this way … Read more

VMworld Europe 2014 Recap

VMworld Europe is the event of the year for me. A week of meeting up with all kinds of IT professionals from around the world. I believe there were around 9,000 people from 90+ different countries. Apart from all the interesting people, it is geek heaven for anyone interested in virtualisation.

Being a techhead first, I always go head first into the technical sessions. This year, I attended around 18 break out sessions mostly about VMware NSX and automation subjects. Being a hybrid engineer (network & virtualisation), I thoroughly am enjoying what is happening in the networking space around virtualisation. … Read more
