Today is a huge day for vBrownBag TechTalks at VMworld. For the first time, our TechTalks are in the Content Catalog and the Schedule Builder application. The US sessions are live today. I would also like to welcome Pure Storage as a sponsor of the vBrownBag TechTalks at VMworld US and EMEA. It is great to have Pure on board as a sponsor, particularly in a week when Gartner’s magic quadrant has them as the most up and right of the all-flash-array vendors.
This week is also big for vBrownBag and Pure Storage, we have the second vBrownBag Build Day this Thursday. I am in Mountain View with the mobile lab and we are going to migrate from an underperforming storage platform to Pure Storage array. The deployment should be quick and simple, so we plan to show some of the day-2 operations tasks as well. Integration into automation systems and hardware upgrades are all important parts of the data center life-cycle which should be simple and seamless.
