VMworld 2015 Breakout Sessions on Demand

It’s been so busy since VMworld 2015 Europe that I’ve only just had the opportunity to view the Breakout Sessions that I couldn’t attend due to session clashes!

Strangely, although you’re told at each session that everything is being recorded, I don’t remember receiving any marketing material from VMware to say it was all up and running….. anyways, if you were at VMworld and wish to view the recordings (and maybe listen to yourself ask questions… like I did) then pop along to the Breakout Sessions on Demand website:


Worth noting that the previous VMworld sessions are also available on that website.

Note: You need the email address you used for VMworld registration in order to access the breakout sessions online!

vShield Endpoint with vSphere 6.0 – Explaining the confusion around the product range!

So I had a customer ask me what was going on with vShield Edge and vCloud Networking & Security, and whether the products are still available or has NSX replaced them…. and what is with this vShield Endpoint feature?

Anyways, after explaining my take on vShield and vCNS I decided to do a bit more digging into vShield Endpoint and why there has been so much confusion with the product range regarding licensing, support, and availability of the products!

I came across this great blog post by Josh Townsend which pretty much explains the history behind vShield, vCNS and NSX and also talks about how you can deploy vShield Endpoint. Rather than me regurgitating what he wrote, I’ll advise you to definitely click through to his blog and have a read! Hopefully all will become clear!
