My Top 10 Sessions for VMworld 2017


Each year that I’ve gone to VMworld, I always have in mind a certain product path that I want to focus on. With all the great content, there’s just no way that you can attend all of the sessions that you want (thank goodness for on-demand recordings). In 2015, I focused on vSphere and vCenter, as I was taking my VCP6-DCV test during the conference. Last year, all of my sessions were on NSX, since I was taking the VCP6-NV exam during the conference. So following suit, this year, I will be taking the VCP6-CMA exam during the conference. Can you guess what my sessions will be focused on? AUTOMATION…with a dash of NSX! 🙂

So here’s a list of my top 10 sessions that I plan to attend at this year’s conference.

Effectively Operating an Automated Cloud [MGT1758BU]

Operationalizing NSX for your Business [NET2696BU]

Infrastructure-as-a-Service and Day 2 Automation of NSX for vSphere using vRealize Orchestrator and vRealize Automation [NET1853BU]

Advanced VMware NSX: Demystifying the VTEP, MAC, and ARP Tables [NET1775BU]

vRealize Automation 7 – Advanced Topics Workshop [ELW182102U]

Deploying NSX on Cisco Infrastructure [NET1350BUR]


These last few have nothing to do with either automation or NSX but they are some interesting topics:

A Deep Dive into vSphere 6.5 Core Storage Features and Functionality [SER1143BU]

vSphere Virtual Volumes made easy with Pure Storage [PBO3367BUS]

vSphere 6.5 Host Resources Deep Dive: Part 2 [SER1872BU]


I’m looking forward to being back at the world’s best virtualization conference, VMworld! See you there! Don’t be a stranger!
