This session brought by Fausta Ibarra and Wayne Greene, both from VMware, was all about the roadmap and missions for SDDC and the vCloud Suite. I will share the highlights of this session with you in case you missed it.
The first general session for this year’s VMworld just finished and brought us some interesting announcements and provided new and returning VMworld visitors insight into the vision and strategy of VMware. More then 400 unique sessions will be given this year!
This morning I had to get out of bed early for the 5K Fun Run/Walk after about 3 hours of sleep as we arrived in the hotel rather late and I was awake because of the earthquake that hit San Francisco.

Are you setting up a new greenfield environment with VMware vSphere? Or did you introduce a new NTP server in your environment? Read on how to bulk configure this on your ESXi hosts!
After preparing for about 2 weeks, I have taken (and passed!) the VCAP5-DCA exam at Global Knowledge in Nieuwegein, the Netherlands. This post will give you some tips and tricks that might help you prepare for the exam and know what will be expected of you.
The best event of the year is approaching again! If it didn’t cross your mind yet: VMworld 2014 is around the corner already and you should hurry up because the early bird discount will only last until the 10th of June.
