We had some awesome TechTalks at Explore in 2022, many with standing-room-only! It is great to be back in person. We will be back at Explore again this year, both in Las Vegas and Barcelona. The TechTalk submission form is available here. Submissions for the US conference close on 31 May to be in the[…]
It’s great to welcome back another regular TechTalk sponsor, Dell Technologies, supporting the community-generated technical content that we want at VMware Explore. It is also almost the last day to submit your TechTalk session using this form.
I am delighted to have Runecast as the latest sponsor of the TechTalks. I have known the Runecast team for quite a few years and it has been great to see both the team and the product grow over the years. You can even find a white paper I wrote for them when the product[…]
I’m delighted to announce the first sponsor of the vBrownBag TechTalks, no surprise since Veeam was our first sponsor when the podcast was first started. We also have a submission deadline, your TechTalk session needs to be submitted using <this form> before May 20th in order to be listed in the VMware Explore session catalog.
VMworld this year will be a “hybrid” event, with a return to an in-person conference and retaining the online attendance option for those unable to attend in-person. The vBrownBag crew will return to the in-person event to produce vBrownBag TechTalks on a stage in the VMware Community area. If you will be at either the[…]
The VMworld team would like your TechTalk session to be in the Content Catalog when it launches and has set a deadline of the end of June to be part of the Content Catalog at launch. If you have a topic but haven’t submitted it yet, go ahead and submit your session now using this[…]

In the middle of September, we had another fun Build Day Live event. This time, we deployed the NetApp HCI platform and the NetApp Kubernetes on top of the HCI. Be sure to take a look at all of the videos from the Build Day Live with NetApp in Boulder as well as the event home page. We all enjoyed our time in Boulder, a beautiful central city with the Rocky Mountains rising up directly to the west of town. I have wanted to look at the process of deploying this HCI platform since I was convinced that HCI isn’t really about having the compute and storage cluster on the same servers. The NetApp HCI uses compute-only hypervisor hosts, and then shared storage using the scale-out Element storage OS from the SolidFire platform. Other HCI platforms use storage inside the hypervisor hosts, and so the storage cluster overlaps the compute cluster. With NetApp, there are two separate clusters, but the management is unified, it overlaps.
Wow. Another whirlwind VMworld US is over. As you expect, we made a massive amount of TechTalks, nearly 70 presentations for over 17 hours of finished video! The full playlist is here on YouTube. Thank you to all of the presenters who shared their knowledge and experience with the community. Thanks also to my crew[…]
