17th Sept update:  I’ve been contacted directly by EMC, and they say they’ll work through this with us. Sounds promising. There’s been a lot of coverage on the topic.

Before you go to VMworld

You’ve got flights & accommodation, VMworld ticket, and sessions picked. There’s a few more of the boring, but important tasks that you should take care of before you leave for VMworld.

Congrats Aussie vExperts

Congratulations to all the vExperts from Australia, New Zealand & Singapore. It’s an honour to be included with such great local talent. Back in 2010, Greg Mulholland was the only vExpert that I actually knew in Australia.

2013 September Melbourne VMUG

The September Melbourne VMUG was on this week, and it was a ripper. The agenda was set for: EMC Presentation: Continuous Availability with VPLEX – Berin Smithson VMware Presentation: What’s New in vSphere 5.

Sit the IaaS exam for US$11

After reading the #vBrownBag IaaS study guide from @coolsport00, and exams being 75% off at VMworld, I decided to book the IaaS exam. The exam is usually US$225. I booked it using the VMworld SF 75% discount code, and thought I’d be cheeky and try and apply the VMUG Advantage 20% discount as well.
