VMworld 2020 – My Virtual VCF Session

The VMworld event was virtual this year, whilst I missed the physical event and meeting up with colleagues and friends from the community, I found the online version very useful to review the content from the comfort of my home office.

I was honored to be able to present a solo breakout session again this year.

Preparing for a virtual session was a little different from a real-life session. I decided to combine video, whiteboarding, mind maps, and some small use of a green screen.

Thank you to all who viewed the session during the event and filled in a survey.

vSAN 7 Webinar – Cloud-Native Storage & File Services

Recently I had the pleasure of presenting on a VMware Learning Zone webinar with my colleague and friend Adam Sweetser from the GSS team.

Together, we focussed on new vSAN 7u1 Storage features and enhancements in the Cloud Native and file service areas.

As promised on the session, the mind map I used is available here.

New vSAN Webinar Series

This month, I am delighted to be part of a new VMware Learning Zone Webinar series focused on vSAN.

Each webinar will be a discussion with my colleague Adam Sweetser from GSS. Together we will cover the architecture, field, and support perspectives around different areas of vSAN.

In the first of the series, Adam and I covered the essential theory and thought processes to get started with Software-Defined Storage.
