Last year marks the first time for Opening Acts at VMworld. This takes place the Sunday before. Opening Acts are panel sessions with some of the best folks in the industry on different topis. This year we're doing Storage, Infrastructure, Networking, Automation, Careers, and Data Protection. It takes place over 3 hours, so some of the sessions will be running parallel.
I'm actually moderating the Networking panel at 2pm, so stop by and see me! We'll be talking both SDN and traditional networking, though I imagine a lot of the conversation will gear towards SDN and at least automation/NetOps. Of course, we'll be trying ot gear it towards virtualization admins and engineers, so it'll be a great session to check out!
