Time To Vote! – The VMworld Sessions 2012

Dear reader,

If you plan to attend VMworld and are interested in attending one of my sessions (the two others are around Project Octopus and therefore probably not open to public voting), please raise your voice and vote for me!

My session is called “Session 2001 – Building up a highly secure virtualized home lab in a space constrained flat”.

Session abstract and outline:
Leveraging Apple’s Mac Mini technology, Qnap NAS, Cisco switching and a Palo Alto Networks Firewall in the mix with the VMware vSphere Infrastructure this session will show you how you can build your own lab on an extremely small footprint. Yet, it will allow you to run the full breadth of the rich VMware portfolio as well as Apple’s Mac OS X and even virtualize professional storage systems.

The session will cover the following points:

  1. Challenges of building your own lab
  2. The benefits of running your own lab for your career as IT professional
  3. Short introduction of the lab’s components
  4. (Live) demonstration and walkthrough of the lab
  5. Questions & Answers

If you are new to VMworld, unsure or can’t remember on how to vote for a session… Continue reading “Time To Vote! – The VMworld Sessions 2012”
