Hersey Cartwright (@herseyc) did a bang up job of presenting storage clustering on the vBrownbag on Wednesday night. As always, you can watch the video & the SlideRocket deck on ProfessionalVMware.com.
Due to a bit of work related travel, I wasn’t able to attend or host the vBrownbag on 3/7/12; however, I heard Josh Atwell did a great job on the hosting tip, and Ravi Venkat completely blew away folks with his knowledge of storage. Head over to ProfessionalVMware.com to check out the video & slides, or subscribe to the podcast on iTunes.
By the way, this is only part one of Ravi’s awesomeness — he’s coming back on 3/28/12 to talk about VM & vDisk. Looking forward to it!
Cody Bunch has done a great job of lining up guests for the month of March 2012. We’ve got four awesome shows planned, all about storage – so we’re dubbing March the Storage Month.
Here’s the lineup:
- 3/7/12: Ravi Venkat – Host-centric storage (pt 1)
- 3/14/12: Hersey Cartwright – Datastore Clustering
- 3/21/12: Gabe Chapman – IO Analyzer
- 3/28/12: Ravi Venkat – VM and vDisk (pt 2)
Hit up the registration page ASAP; we looking forward to dropping some storage science every Wednesday night in March at 7pm CDT.
Alastair Cooke (web/twitter) has just announced that he will be starting a series of ProfessionalVMware VCAP Brownbags specifically for the APAC region. He and his guests plan to cover the VCAP5-DCD certification first, then move on to the VCAP5-DCA certification. Live sessions will run at 6pm Sydney time, with downloads available after the event. Register for the APAC Brownbag.
Thanks and good luck to Alastair — I hope he has as much fun doing the APAC Brownbags as I have in the US! 🙂
This Wednesday January 18 2012, I’ll be hosting the next session of the Brownbag VCP 5 series. We’ll be covering section 3 of the VCP 5 blueprint, vSphere Storage, presented by Shane Williford (aka @coolsport00 on Twitter).
Shane Williford works as a Senior Systems Administrator for a local credit union in the Kansas City area. He’s a VMware Zone Expert on Experts-Exchange.com, is a VMware VCP 3/4, and a VMware vExpert for 2011. He plans on taking the VCP 5 exam at the beginning of February 2012. You can read more about Shane on his VMware vExpert Spotlight.
Register for the webinar today, and join us on Wednesday January 18, 2012 at 7PM CST.
