vmworldus2016-1

Johan van Amersfoort, one of the ITQ consultants and team lead End User Computing, attended VMworld US. Together with more than 20,000 other IT followers Johan attended several of the hundreds of sessions. In this article Johan summarizes his favorite sessions.

Ask the Experts: Practical Tips and Tricks to Help You Succeed in EUC [EUC9992]
In this session a number of EUC Champions answered questions regarding EUC. Hundreds of attendees could ask everything they wanted to know. Johan, as a EUC Champion, was excited to be part of this session. Please come and ask what you want to know about EUC at VMworld Europe in Barcelona or at the VMware Benelux Party in October.

Architecting VSAN for Horizon the VCDX Way [EUC8648R]vmworldus2016-2
A technical session, the title says it all. When you are thinking of designing and deploying VSAN for Horizon, this is a must-see. Especially for Johan as he submitted his design for VCDX-DTM. This session will be available in Barcelona in October.

Solutions Exchange
One of the attractions at each VMworld is the Solutions Exchange: a giant room that contains booths of a wide variety of vendors that all operating in the ecosystem of VMware. Storage vendors, network vendors and software solutions. The Solution Exchange is the place to-be where you can meet and talk with all the vendor specialists.

Meeting friends and making new friends
This is probably the funniest of all. In the Netherlands we have a strong VMware community with a lot of people having an active role due to blogging and presenting. And meeting each other at regular vBeers, organized in places such as Amsterdam and The Hague. And when meeting each other on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean in a city like Las Vegas is almost a guaranty for fun. And so it was!

I hope to see you (again) at VMworld Europe 2016 in Barcelona.
