VMworld 2019 - Our Debrief

VMworld 2019

It’s that time of the year again, we’ve just wrapped up VMworld US and it was great meeting many folks on the expo floor, vendor booths, sessions and of course for a drink in the evening.

For me, these conferences are all about networking and you’d be surprised with how little sessions I attend. The reason I do this is I can watch/listen to the session recordings during my travel back, however meeting my industry peers needs to happen in person. If you are still catching up on VMworld 2019, just like myself, below are the sessions I recommend.

We had a great time meeting, greeting and eating with friends at VMworld USA 2019

Over the last 3 years, many companies have been working in the digital workspace. VMware horizon cloud demonstrates a 2x growth year to year, something that can also be established from the community VDI Like a Pro survey (get the full report here, for free), it’s all about the employee experience and while that encompasses more than just desktop performance, I believe this is a key component of every EUC environment especially considering the speed of ever-increasing changes.

Login VSI Blog - VMworld 2019 Debrief - VDILikeAPro Survey Results

According to Shawn Bass / Gartner, 30% of virtual apps and desktops (EUC Keynote, VMworld 2019) will move from on-prem to the cloud in 2 to 3 years from now. You may not migrate, maybe for burst or DR. Move management first especially in the multi-site or multi-cloud. Windows virtual desktop is a great way to keep on running Windows 7, and Windows 10 multi-session, it might not replace the old way, but it might be a new addition.

While we are on the topic of cloud, many things can impact your performance. Typically for you as an admin, these are “unplanned changes” you might not even be in the loop on beforehand as we’ve seen with the patching for Meltdown & Spectre and later Intel CPU security flaws.
