This year is going to be the second one in a row when I don't get to do my favorite autumn activity: go to VMworld in Barcelona. But I do get to do part of it - attend the virtual VMworld 2021. And to make it as close as possible to the real experience, I will most probably add some red Spanish wine and jamon on the side.
As for the sessions I am looking forward to attend, I will leave here a few of my choices:
I've been involved recently in projects with Tanzu and vSAN and this session with Duncan Epping and Cormac Hogan is the place to go to see how vSAN continues to evolve, to learn about new features, integration with with Tanzu and hear some of the best practices.
A session about what I think is a one of the game changers introduced by VMware this year: include VM-based workloads in modern applications using Kubernetes APIs to deploy, configure and manage them. I've been using working with VM service since its official release in May and also wrote small blog post earlier this month.
