Start Time:8:00 AM PDT

Duration:60 minutes


The Business Critical Applications (Workloads) Team at VMware consists of the Applications Subject Matter Experts responsible for testing and validating virtualized Mission Critical Applications on the vSphere Platform. As Resident Experts, they are responsible for supporting VMware's field personnel, customers and partners looking for guidance on properly, efficiently and optimally running these applications on vSphere. If you have read any Workloads-related Technical material about application virtualization on vSphere, you have very likely "met" one or more of the Team Members. Now, the Team Members want to meet you in return. Have questions about virtualizing your applications on vSphere? Wondering what you should or shouldn’t do? Have a specific applications configuration/performance/reliability issue that you need resolved? Let's have a (Virtual) sit-down. Let's talk. Come for the discussion, enjoy the fun, leave with the resolution and education.
