VMworld 2011 – Day 2
Yesterday I spent most of the time in LABS. Comparing labs with labs from 2010, labs on current VMworld event are much longer, average single lab has around 90 minutes to complete and 100 pages to read. I have an impression that today’s labs are for rookies, maybe I’m mistaken or I choose such a lab for beginners. I will see today, I’m planing to get at least 2 labs.
Besides the labs, yesterday I went for 2 group discussions meetings – group discussion is a meeting with VMware Architects and active discussion between them and participants, both sessions were really good. A first one was with Cloud consulting architects about architecture decisions during Private or Public cloud design process. On that session I realized that I don’t know much about Cloud and even less about design process a Cloud Architecture – I have to change that :-). Second meeting was with HA and FT engineers, was also very interested mainly about new HA architecture in vSphere 5 (FDM instead of AAM), differences between Admission Control Policies, very cool feature – datastore heartbeat and finally about isolation response types.
