I attended Carter Shanklin’s “TA01 - Managing VMware With PowerShell” session. There wasn’t enough room to get all the people in, so his next sessions will be in a bigger hall. I recorded the complete session, but it’s 900 MB of data which is a tremendous job to process. The next video shows you the first ten minutes, the remainder will be available later this week.

I made a little video impression of the first day at the VMworld Europe 2009 in Cannes. It’s a ten minute video with a part of the keynote, the labs and a short interview with Mike Laverick at VMware community lounge.

I would like to share my days experiences but anyone who attends the VCI (VMware Certified Instructor) day is under strict NDA (Non Disclosure). This means that I can’t say anything about lots of demo sessions, demonstrating all the new features in the next generation of VI. Besides that there was an open discussion to talk about certification paths, course roadmap, and all things VCI and VATC related, including the MyLearn, evaluation. I made some pictures and collected a video footage.
What is The Virtualization EcoShell Initiative?
The Virtualization EcoShell Initiative (VESI™) is a Vizioncore sponsored community initiative being driven by Virtualization expert and author Scott Herold. The goal of The VESI is to enhance the virtualization administrative experience by providing a consolidated graphical toolkit for virtualization management that is easily extensible by the community called the Virtualization EcoShell.
What is the Virtualization EcoShell?
The Virtualization EcoShell is a freeware "Power Toolkit" for virtualization administrators powered by Quest Software’s award winning PowerGUI. The Virtualization EcoShell provides limitless extensibility through a customizable graphical interface that includes an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for managing, creating, and debugging PowerShell scripts that extend the capabilities of daily virtualization management.
When is the Virtualization EcoShell scheduled to be released?
The current schedule is to provide a public beta of the Virtualization EcoShell at the end of March 2009. Individuals that are interested in leveraging the core technology today may download and use PowerGUI with the VMware Infrastructure Management PowerPack. A good primer to get started can be found at VMGuru.com.

As a special Veeam VIP, I was cordially invited to the Veeam partner & customer appreciation party. I met up with the Veeam executive team on board the yacht "Free Life" in the Cannes harbour for a high-energy party with food, drinks, music & fun.
This evening it was party time in Cannes, I enjoyed the Vizioncore Partner Reception at the Majestic Barriere Beach Club. Al always I brought my camera and made some video shots, and as always this year’s Vizioncore Partner Reception was another memorable event with food, friends and fun.
This afternoon I landed in Cannes and I picked up my VMworld registration materials, including my badge and program guide. While Viktor van den Berg was checking his presentation, Paul Maritz walked into the VMware office. The video shows Paul prepping his Partner Day session. Afterwards I got a glimpse of the Solution Exchange, the guys were working really hard to build up all the booth’s.Continue reading "I Picked Up My VMworld 2009 Europe Badge" »
