VMworld 2013 - Call for Papers Voting is Now Open. Cast your vote to see your favorite sessions!!

Time of the year when VMware has opened the flood gates for votes on sessions you would like to see at VMworld - The flagship industry event by VMware. Its been 10 long years that VMware has been running the show and this year its gonna be as big as always.

It is a great opportunity for customers, partners and industry experts to get together and share how they have made a difference in their workplace and industry verticals by using the solutions available today with VMware and the partner ecosystem. To read more about the event and the dates you can see this link.

A few weeks back, VMware requested the industry experts to share their experiences and technical know-how by delivering sessions at VMworld through its Call for Papers Program. I feel it is a great initiative as this allows collaborative learning to play a big role at the event. Given an opportunity, I would love to present at this AWESOME event and I have done my bit by submitting for a couple of sessions.

As the title of my post suggests, these sessions need support from the VMworld audience, who can vote for the sessions which they want to see during the event. The most popular and in demand sessions would make it to the final rounds of presentation sessions, demos or panel discussions.

Here are the sessions which I have submitted. Have a look, and if you think they will help the larger audience and would address the issues I am trying to solve, then vote for them. Of-course I would also encourage you to vote for other great sessions which are listed out there.


 Breakout Session

 vSphere performance best practices are the key for a successful operation of a VMware vSphere Environment. Although it is easy to build an environment keeping Best Practices in mind, it is difficult to sustain them as the environment grows. This session would not only help you learn about the top 10 best practices, but also help you understand how you can leverage vCenter Operations Manager to ensure that these Best Practices are being followed at all the times in your VMware Virtual Infrastructure.

This session would be in a discussion and presentation mode between a Professional Services Consultant who ensures that vSphere Best Practices are applied in every infrastructure designed by him. At the same time, he urges VMware customers to maintain these best practices as the infrastructure grows. On the other hand with each best practice being discussed and explained by the Consultant, the VMware vCOps Subject Matter Expert would talk about how these best practices can be monitored using Out of the Box and Custom features of vCenter Operations Manager.

Top 10 vSphere Best Practices which would help you maintain the health of your vSphere Environment. This would range around the key technology areas of CPU, Memory, Disk & Network
