Although the in-person Odyssey tournament at VMware Explore US has concluded, you can now play the same games as our competitors and winners! We are happy to release to our public catalog six new Odyssey games that were featured in the tournament. These are a terrific way to validate your skills and see how you rank against your peers in your understanding of VMware products and services.  

Here you can see John Schulz and Mike O’Reilly keeping the audience entertained while our fierce competitors battle through the tasks competing for that winning spot at the top of our leader board.  

VMware Odyssey by Hands-on Labs uses the same infrastructure as our Hands-on Labs, providing a consistent environment and experience to explore and learn at your own pace and at any time. Whether you are starting your learning journey or have years of experience, we know you will find these challenges enjoyable. Plus, they are available without a charge or subscription!
