VMworld Session Voting is now Open!!

Sorry for the shameless plug – but the amount of amazing sessions that are available are enormous –
1164 of them to be precise – and all of these are open for public voting.

Forbes Guthrie, Scott Lowe and yours truly have submitted a session as an opportunity to present your questions and voice your opinions on vSphere Design at VMworld. Tom Howarth has kindly agreed to moderate the session.

Session 1843
Your vSphere Design and a Session with the Experts

Every infrastructure administrator would like to have the best of all worlds from their virtual infrastructure. You want a solid and sound foundation to build your datacenter and your cloud environment for the future. Join in this session with the 3 authors of VMware vSphere Design who have "written the book" on how to get the most out your environment. Come join us for a one hour panel session where you can quiz the Experts on your Virtual Infrastructure Design. Join the Virtualization Experts and Authors; Forbes Guthrie from vReference, Scott Lowe of EMC, and Maish Saidel-Keesing from Technodrone for chance to get the answers to your vSphere design problems.

I think that such a session will be beneficial to all that participate.
