VMworld 2017 US – Technical Session Mind Maps

I was lucky enough to make it to the US VMworld event this year.

A great event with some excellent presentations and announcements.

vSAN and NSX have grown considerably.  These products featured heavily in the sessions from an operational and case study perspective.  Both products are now part of  great potential production solutions for many interesting use cases.

The new vCloud on AWS service was launched and more information presented thoughout the event. 


I created a few mind maps for the sessions that caught my interest during the event.

Design Webinar #3 recording

The 3rd seminar is the Adventures in design series was held recently.
I had  2 great presenters (Yevs and Rebecca),  both active architects, instructors and VCDX certified.
We discussed everything DR, BC and Back Up, both from a  business and technical architecture point of view.
Although not aimed directly at any particular certification,  it could be useful for the VCAP6-DCD and VCDX certifications.
