Show Notes
  • Topic 1 - Welcome back to the show. You were once the Most Interesting Man in the Cloud, so what are you doing now?
  • Topic 2- VMware pioneered virtual networking back when VM Admins and Network Admins had to figure out how to network virtual machines, but the world has moved well beyond on-prem VMs. Where is VMware bringing software-defined networking now? Follow Up: As someone who pioneered the concept of cloud (and owned cloud.com), where do you see the future of networking? Is it all software? Do you own www.cloudnetworking.com?
  • Topic 3- Walk us through the basics and differences between NSX-V and NSX-T?
  • Topic 3 - Public clouds have their own internal networks, so help us understand what role VMware plays in networking once a company gets outside the 4 walls of the data center?
  • Topic 4 - Is this where VMware Virtual Cloud Network comes into play? Help listeners out that aren’t familiar with the product?
  • Topic 5 - Who is a Virtual Cloud Network Admin? Is that a VM-admin or Container-admin or SRE or DevOps team or something else?
  • Topic 6 - Have you ever seen Dom Delfino and the singer Pitbull in the same room together?
Feedback?
