VMworld TechTalks powered by vBrownBags

This show is about to get very very real. In a week’s time VMworld will be in full swing,  the first Tech Talks will be in the can and available in recorded form for those who couldn’t be there.

Here’s what to expect next Wednesday from the Community studio:

As always we start the day with Mike Letschin hosting the vExpert hour.  Wednesdays vExperts are: Bilal Hashmi, Ron Singler, James Bowling and Tony Foster. I met Bilal at VMworld last year, full of enthusiasm and I’m looking forward to meeting up with him again.  James is a recent addition to the AutoLab team having written the Fusion setup guide that is now in the AutoLab document, I need to buy this man a beer.

The Lightning Tech Talks in the morning start with Shmuel Kliger asking whether there is still a place for troubleshooting in a modern datacentre. Keith Norbie promises Kung Fu for your end user compute needs (I don’t think we will be Kung Fuing the users, however much it appeals). Edward Shen makes AutoDeploy better with a serving of vCentre Orchestrator.

The Super Star hour has none other than John Troyer and Alex Maier hosting the 200th episode of the VMware Communities Roundtable Podcast. Can you believe it’s been 200 episodes?  And that the 200th episode coincided with VMworld?

To continue the Super Star theme from 1pm until 2pm Duncan Epping will be in the house, then from 2pm until 3pm William Lam will be getting Ghetto for the Unsupported session with Randy Keener.

The afternoons lightning rounds kick of with Tim Antonowicz giving some tips and guidance on sitting your VCAP5-DCD exam, you should already know that exam technique is an important part of the VCAP exams. Shimon Hason will look into Virtualizing Systems Management then  Dan Barr will address testing to make sure thatthe SRM recovery plan actually produces a working application, not just powered on VMs. The final lightning session of the day will be Ben Scheerer using vCenter Infrastructure Navigator to expose applications in your virtual infrastructure.

To round out the day the vBrownBag crew will conduct a review of the days announcements and sessions before heading off to freshen up and hit the party or the unparty.
