Dana’s Starter Social Media Bucket List for Conferences
  • You’d be surprised whose attention you can get by sharing an insight or quote from a presentation. If you’re brave enough, share your opinion on something that’s been said. (Don’t forget to tag the speaker and event accounts, and use the relevant hashtags. Bonus points for including a visual.)
  • For a sense of the conversations surrounding the event and presentations, look up hashtags like: #vCommunity, #VMworld2020, #vExpert. Don’t be shy to add your two cents!
  • There’s nothing stopping you from starting a 1:1 conversation with somebody to learn more about them. (Except, maybe, Twitter’s functionality that sometimes requires both people to be following one another before enabling a Direct Messaging option.) Casually introduce yourself via DM and ask someone what they do, what they’re working on, and see where the conversation goes.

VMware vSAN is enterprise‑class, storage virtualization software that, when combined with vSphere, allows you to manage compute and storage with a single platform. With vSAN, you can reduce the cost and complexity of traditional storage and take the easiest path to HC infrastructure and hybrid cloud.

vVols

vVols defines a new virtual disk container (Virtual Volume) that is independent of the underlying physical storage representation. This virtual disk becomes the primary unit of data management, eliminating pre‑allocated LUNs/Volumes. vVols enables storage operations with VM granularity, leveraging native array‑based data services and software‑based data services.

With VMware Virtual Volumes (vVols), it is much simpler to deliver and enable the right storage service levels according to the specific requirements of individual VMs. By having finer control over storage resources and data services down to the VM level, the VI administrator can create exact combinations and precisely deliver storage service levels.
