VMworld 2017 Day Four

Yay I made it! VMworld 2017 Day Four! While the dust starts to settle at Mandelay Bay and a big chunk of the attendees are slowly returning home, there are still a lot of cool things to do like the Hand on Labs. It will give you the opportunity to play with the newest addition to the VMware family VMware Appdefense.
 

VMworld 2017 Day Four
 

Today I attended another VMware Design Studio session, this time the topic was “vSphere: Next Generation Lifecycle“. It was a Deep dive into ESXi lifecycle challenges like: VMware Update Manager (VUM), Host Profile, Auto Deploy, HCL, firmware and other co-create solutions. It was an interactive small group session with the VMware User Experience team. The goal is to provide the VMware User Experience team information about your stuggles and issues with your day-2-day work, and to help them understand your needs as a customer, consultant and / or architect. These sessions are also held in Barcelona in 2 weeks, if you would like to attend these sessions look for the link in my other post VMworld 2017 Day Two.

My ITQ colleague Johan van Amersfoort aka “The Bearded VDI Junkie” has created a really cool video blog with some of the highlight of VMworld 2017 US. Enjoy!
