Finishing up prep for VMworld next week. Two sessions, booth duty, and various interviews and briefings, along with networking. Should be a busy week! If you are attending, stop by the booth and say hello. I always enjoy talking data with anyone.
As always, here's some stuff I found on the internet I hope you might find interesting. Enjoy!
