VMworld Barcelona – great sessions to schedule

So many VMworld session, so little time!

It is as always a good idea to plan your VMworld sessions in advance. Some of the sessions will likely be very popular so do not delay in setting up your schedule. Don’t despair if a session is fully booked, rather add it to your interests and check back at a later date to see if spaces have become available.

It is also worth noting that if there is a schedule conflict you will be notified:

There are indeed lots and lots of great sessions to consider – here are my favourites so far, with somewhat of a focus on datacenter virtualisation:
