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 by 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 have very kindly made available several free ebooks for download that I'd like to share with you.
