VMworld Barcelona is just around the corner. Unlike VMworld US where I was on vacation spending most of my time in the hang space, I will be at Barcelona in an official VMware capacity.

I will be presenting a session alongside Aidan Dalgleish, Frank Denneman and Rawlinson Rivera INF-VSP1168 – Architecting a Cloud Infrastructure Tuesday 12:30 – 13:30 This session will discuss the various design considerations when architecting the foundation for every solid cloud environment: vSphere 5.0.

Look forward to seeing everyone there.
