No. The General Election is over – and I’m not seeking a career in politics!
This year, VMworld Sessions are up for the public vote. So imagine that VMworld is like an episode of American Idol or Big Brother. I was actually asked by VMware to deliver a SRM session at this years VMworld. So I knocked together a blurb about what I would be chinwagging about! So this is what I thunk up…
“In the session, Mike Laverick (author of the only two books on VMware SRM) will discuss popular misunderstandings about what is possible for a configuration of SRM, and popular misunderstandings about the product. Drawing from his book, Mike will outline some of the limitations that SRM possess, and how you can work around these with a combination of PowerCLI and SDK. Finally, Mike will discuss what he think future versions of SRM will attempt to deliver, and how thinks the technology will evolve in the next 5 years.”
Really the session will about how people try and make SRM do things it can’t, and how people try to make stuff which isn’t about site recovery into site recovery tools. I will flag up common gotchas and bugs – and then end up with some blue sky (surely cloud?) thinking about where I creatively imagine where the product is going….
So vote for me – if this floats your boat! I’m 3rd from the top “VMware Site Recovery Manager: Misconceptions and Misconfigurations”
