My personal selection for VMworld 2021

VMworld 2021 is now taking place virtually for the second time. Even if this is not a real substitute for an on-site event, it is a good source of information in times of pandemic.

VMworld will take place virtually in several time zones between October 5 and 7, 2021. Participation is free of charge. All you need to do is register on the VMworld portal page.

My selection

This list are my selected favorites. The order is purely alphabetical and no ranking. A shift towards Kubernetes, Modern Apps and GPUaaS has been noticeable in recent years. The latter was added in the current year by a Bitfusion with Kubernetes project. However, some classics like Frank’s 60 Minutes of NUMA, talks by Cormac Hogan and Duncan Epping are still part of the must-attend program.
