VMworld Europe 2017 – First day experiences #vmworld

I would like to share my opinion and experiences about my first VMworld EU (Barcelona) happening 🙂

11/09/17 – We pick up our badge and look oround a little. We met Valentin Czuczumanov (Senior Engineer at VMware) and Nyitrai Csaba (VMUG Hungary leader)

12/09/17 – Becouse of morning rush hour in Barcelona we arrived at Keynote a little bit late. The CEO of VMware Pat Gelsinger @PGelsinger has already started the speach. Fortunetly I got a quite good place in the “arena”

In the vmvillage had big screen where can you see the live streem from next room 🙂

Pat Gelsinger show us how we are able to migrate our VMs from on-prem to cloud in Virtual Reality. It was a funny demo with Alan Renouf @alanrenouf.

End of the general session I had to run Hall 8.0 Room 21, becouse I scheduled lots of breakout session. Fira Gran Via is a big place but VMworld also is a big event.

I catched up my session “Implementing Advanced vSphere Features with Veeam Availability Suite” (#PBO3309BES) in the time. Here is my tweet and a picture from session.

The presenters Michael Cade from UK and Clinton Wyckoff show us what is new in Veeam v10, and end of the session they demonstrate benefit of itegration Veeam and vRealize Log Insight. They also talked about how we can backup encrytped VMs and why vVOL is better then VMFS perspective of snapshot base backups.
