2 minute read

Time to vote for VMworld 2011 sessions is here. Like every year VMware has opened the process to vote for those sessions that you want to make their way to the conference. To be able to vote you need to have a vmworld.com account, if don’t have one the registering process is very easy. The voting process is open until May 18th.

I checked the sessions at VMworld site and all look very interesting, you should review the complete list and vote for the ones you like the most. However I also want to see a deep HP presence in VMworld since I firmly believe that HP has a lot to offer for VMware environments, also some of the most talented guys in the company have sent a bunch of damn good sessions for this VMworld, and because of that I compiled the following list which includes every session proposed by the HP folks. If you think like me please vote for their sessions.

Julian doesn’t work for HP but without any doubt he can be considered an expert in both VMware and Virtual Connect Flex-10 and this session has the honor to be the only Flex-10 related session. You can get more details about the session in his blog where he wrote a post about it.
