  • 9:50 Sponsor Presentation: How to Recover 2TB in 2 Minutes: by Scott Lysne, Solutions Engineer at Rubrik. Folks, big data is here to stay, and the VM’s are only getting bigger. It is  a big part of our jobs to protect, and yes, recover these VM’s in a “reasonable” amount of time. What’s you definition of reasonable? What’s you business’s definition? How do you do this today? Is there a better way?? I think so, and I’ll show you how.
  • 10:40 Break
  • 11:00 Community Presentation: Keeping up with the clouds – Skills development for fun, career growth, and profit by Sean Massey, Staff Cloud Solutions Architect at VMware (@SeanPMassey)Technology is evolving at an increasingly rapid pace.  It seems like the cool technology that everyone was talking about yesterday has been supplanted by something new today, and all of these technologies promise to fundamentally change the datacenter the way that VMware changed it a decade ago.  And as training budgets shrink, you feel like you’re falling further behind.  And you may not be able to just take a class to implement a new data center technology.
    So how can you keep up with the pack and understand newer technology? We’ll talk about some tips and techniques that are used to learn the latest technology and keep yourself ahead of the curve.
