VMworld 2019 Tech-Talk

After 2 long years of silence, I can finally now blog about my new home at CloudSimple. The reason for the long silence is that CloudSimple was in stealth mode until we launched our Azure VMware Solution in May at Dell-Tech World. We just also announced our GCP VMware Solution that is slated for GA by the end of this year.

This week, I had the opportunity to attend VMworld 2019 in the recently renovated Moscone Center which marks a come-back for the event to San Francisco. I heard that VMware signed a 10 years deal with them. So, if this is true, I hope to attend again in the coming years.

The decision to attend was made late in the event planning process and by the time I was certain of attending, the call for content has already come and gone. The vBrownbag team were gracious enough to accommodate me for a 12 minutes tech-talk after the event catalog was already closed. This is why the talk was not on the catalog.

The talk is titled “Simplifying access to vSphere resources via Azure with CloudSimple“. Here is the YouTube recording of that session. I plan on posting more articles and recording about CloudSimple solutions here soon.
