VMworld Session Voting is now Open!!

The Voting is open

This year there are a record 1164  sessions that you can vote for and if you vote for any, vote for Session 1843 – why I hear you ask?

Well to be fair it is a shameless plug πŸ™‚ but that aside, where else are you going to get Forbes Guthrie, Scott Lowe and Maish Saidel-Keesing talking about Design practice.  for the uninitiated these three illuniartie have submitted a session as an opportunity to present your questions and voice your opinions on vSphere Design at VMworld. The Shameless plug relate to the fact that yours truely is the session moderator.

so what exactly is Session 1843 Your vSphere Design and a Session with the Experts all about? below is the blerb from the VMworld website.

Every infrastructure administrator would like to have the best of all worlds from their virtual infrastructure. You want a solid and sound foundation to build your datacenter and your cloud environment for the future. Join in this session with the 3 authors of VMware vSphere Design who have "written the book" on how to get the most out your environment. Come join us for a one hour panel session where you can quiz the Experts on your Virtual Infrastructure Design. Join the Virtualization Experts and Authors; Forbes Guthrie from vReference, Scott Lowe of EMC, and Maish Saidel-Keesing from Technodrone for chance to get the answers to your vSphere design problems.

That side and forget about the fact that I am the moderator, I think that the chance to be in a question and answer session with these three gurus is too good a thing to miss.
