[session] @VMware to Present at @CloudExpo | @CSWolf #VM #AI #ML #DX

Successful Cloud Operations Means Knowing When to Say "No!" Building a cross-cloud operational model can be a daunting task.

The Unspoken Challenge of Cloud Silos

On a recent excursion to a tech event I had the pleasure of meeting a well-known ‘VM Guru', (who shall remain nameless). Having read some of this individual's material I was excited and intrigued to know his thoughts on how he was tackling the Storage challenges related to VMware especially with Fibre Channel SANs. "Storage, that's nothing to do with me, I'm a VirtGuy", he proudly announced.

Seemingly annoyed with the question, he answered, "Why? I have SAN architects and a Storage team for that, it's not my problem. I told you I'm a VirtGuy, I have my tools so I can check esxtop, vCe...
