VMworld 2019 – Recap Day 2: VMware’s Vision, Pulse IoT Center, Pat Gelsinger @vExpertParty

Tuesday 05/11/2019

The 2nd day of VMworld started of with the general session which outlined VMware’s vision, strategy and some tangible customer cases. The first tech session for me was about Pulse IoT Center. A promising way to manage your IoT devices like sensors, cameras etc. focusing on your Edge Environment.

After lunch, we did an Expert Lead Hands-on Lab about PKS. We created Namespaces, Containers and triggered Bosh to redeploy a broken container. You can try out the Lab at home by going to https://labs.hol.vmware.com and searching for lab ‘2031’.


In the afternoon we scouted the Solution Exchange, hunting for some goodies. I learned a lot regarding ESXi on ARM! They showcased a simple raspberry pi running ESXi which creates the opportunity to bring all the benefits of virtualization to your Edge environments. Just mind blowing!

The evening started with a great vExpert party where Pat Gelsinger joined us for a chat. Sneaked in for a picture with the Belgian vExperts.


Afterwards the evening ended with the ITQ BeNeLux party! Never a dull moment at VMworld!
