So, with VMworld coming up (a mere 1 week away), I am really excited about everything going on.
The sessions, labs, announcements, and events going on are enough to make a virtual-geek like myself feel like Christmas Eve!
Last year was my first experience at VMworld and I loved every minute of it. However, I was rolling solo. I met some nice people while I was there, but that is about it. This year, though, I would like that to change… I want to meet a bunch of people and experience the event at a whole new level.
God willing, the following are the sessions I intend on attending while in SF:
|TA7743||ESX iSCSI News, Configuration, and Best Practices|
|TA8595||Virtual Network Concepts and Best Practices|
|TA8102||Tuning Linux for Virtual Machines|
|DV7500||VDI Assessment and Migration|

|EA7850||Design, Deploy, and Optimize Microsoft SQL 2008|

As far as labs are concerned, I would love to hit the following labs:
|Lab11||SRM Installation and Config|
|Lab12||SRM Extended Config and Troubleshooting|
|Lab24||vSphere Performance and Tuning|
Plus, I feel like VMware really has some awesome things up their sleeves. I am expecting the keynote on Tuesday to be awesome! Don’t let me down VMware!
While I am in SFO, you can get my updates via the Twitters (@arctic_99) and via the Blog – I should be easy to find. I’ll be the guy with his laptop posting updates online
Let me know if you’re going to be at VMworld and maybe we can high-5 between sessions!
