Well this has crept up on us quickly this year! It’s time to vote for the VMworld Sessions that will be part of the US and Europe VMworld’s held later in the year. The Session Voting is more Session liking as you have the ability to mark multiple sessions as ones that you would like to see. There are 1574 sessions that where submitted and are listed in the Online Catalog.
VMware NSX has been out for two years and in that time has already gone through some significant updates and feature addons. The power of the NSX platform and what that offers Service Providers meant that getting NSX into Zettagrid become priority number 1 leading up to the end of 2015. Come and hear how Zettagrid successfully retrofitted NSX into an existing vCloud Platform that spans three Hosting Zones across Australia. In this session I will take you through how we brought NSX from Lab to limited BETA release to full production productization and deployment. You will hear about how working on the bleeding edge of network virtualization had its challenges and how NSX as an overlay network fit into our existing physical layer as well as the operational and architecture challenges we ran into before being able to offer our NSX Advanced Networking Product as part of our vCloud Director Virtual DC portfolio extending our Hybridity capabilities.
There is a lot of competition around the NSX space with 302 sessions listed that contain NSX in the title or the description but I’m hoping my experiences are interesting enough to get some votes and then make it through the internal voting process. On a separate note it was also pleasing to see an increase in the number of vCloud Director sessions this year.
As per the VMworld Session Voting FAQ Session Voting is open May 12 – May 26 at 11:59 pm PDT.
