The amount of VM’s created and destroyed over the week, will be more than you will probably ever create in a lifetime. And all of it sitting in the Cloud. VMware really eat their own dog food a,d have created a great experience.
There are some innovations this year including BYOD labs, and some lightning labs that will be short and sweet.
Some of the labs I would like to take this year are:
- HOL-APP-01 - Manage Your Cloud Applications with VMware vFabric Application Director
- HOL-APP-02 - Deploy Applications in a Platform as a Service (PaaS) World with Cloud Foundry
- HOL-APP-03 - Enable Database as a Service (DBaaS) in Your Cloud with VMware vFabric Data Director
- HOL-APP-05 - Scale Your Applications with VMware vFabric
- HOL-INF-03 - Automate Your vSphere Deployment with Auto Deploy
- HOL-INF-09 - Deliver Your IT Services in the Cloud
- HOL-OPS-03 - Build an IT Cost Model with the VMware IT Business Managment Suite
- HOL-OPS-04 - DynamicOps by VMware - Rapidly Deliver Private and Hybrid Clouds Across Multi-Vendor Environments
- HOL-OPS-07 - VMware vCenter Orchestrator - "The Undiscovered Country"
- HOL-PRT-01 - Automate IP Address Assignment and DNS Registration with Infoblox
I gather I will not make it to all of them – but I hope they will be made available to the general public after the show.
