See you at VMworld Barcelona [Updated]

fira-gran-viaWith less than a month to go, I thought I’d let you know about what I’m up to at VMworld in Barcelona once more this year. Once again, the show is on at the Fira Gran Via, where it has been held since 2012. This makes it the fifth year in a row that the event has been held here. Anyway, on with what I’ll be doing.

paudie-luckycharmsMy session this year will be Virtual SAN day #2 operations. In this session, my good pal Paudie O’Riordan (that handsome guy in the picture on the left – his words, not mine) and I will cover items like monitoring, alerting, upgrades, troubleshooting, and remediation of VSAN, and all those other things that you need to care about when you have VSAN in production. Yes, I know you can watch the recording from the US VMworld session, but it’s not the same, is it? 🙂 I also promise to keep Paudie off of the lucky charms this time. And we might even have some freebies to hand-out. Oooh!

[Update] I’ve just found out that I have been allocated 3 x “Meet the Expert” slots. These are on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 12pm – 1pm. If you want to discuss anything storage related, or wish to provide feedback on any of our storage products or features, please come along to the “Meet the Experts” area and book some time with me. I’d be delighted to chat with you.

One last item that I do want to mention is the VMware{Code} hackathon. It promises to be great fun, and was a great success at VMworld in the US. This is being held in Barcelona on Monday, Oct. 17, 2016, at 18:30. I’m not sure where it is being held yet, but you can sign up on the previous link. Check out this link to a blog by Alan Renouf for more info on the hackathon. Sure to be good!
