In 2019 I was fortunate to attend VMworld in Barcelona, a global conference for Cloud Computing and Virtualisation hosted by VMware.

As part of the event, I visited Cloud City, an interactive learning and demonstration space that showcased the future of enterprise-defining cloud technology. I listened to quite a few presentations about VMware Cloud on AWS. I also followed the Modern App sessions, and was impressed with the concept of Containers and Kubernetes as a way to develop and maintain apps.

It's also fair to say I'm a huge fan of vSAN and I could talk for hours about it as a product. I get some really good questions about deployment, and I get asked questions about SQL.

For those of you with similar interests, VMware has very kindly made available several free ebooks for download that I'd like to share with you.

Last March 2020, we entered lockdown, and this in turn led to a new way of working for a lot of people, leading to the acronym WFH (working from home). In the UK we are now emerging from the “work from home if you can” to a hybrid working model of perhaps going back into the office full time, a few days a week, or remain working from home.

What does this mean for IT professionals? We’ve now had to develop new support skills and new ways of building and maintaining our corporate IT systems. Perhaps this is now a combination of corporate devices and BYOD (bring your own device) hardware.

We still need to maintain the security of our system and this is now becoming more complex. People now want to work from anywhere. With all this in mind, our friends at VMware have kindly produced an ebook, which covers the challenges of ensuring that we continue to deliver and maintain a reliable and secure working environment in an ever-changing world.
