Well its official, the word is out. VMworld 2013 sessions have been announced and from the looks of it I will be attending both US and Barcelona again this year (hopefully I won’t fall a sleep everywhere in Barcelona this time). I will be delivering a couple of sessions again this year. The session below should be of great interest on the topic Software Defined Storage. I hope to see everyone at VMworld again this year for all of the great announcements, events, and gatherings. So register for VMworld 2013 and sign up for my sessions. (My other sessions will be listed at a later time on the VMworld sessions catalog)
