I’m excited to announce that the “Extreme Performance Series” is back for its 5th year, and with 7 additional sessions, it’s our largest year ever! These sessions are created and presented by VMware’s best and most distinguished performance engineers, principals, architects and gurus. You do not want to miss these advanced sessions.
Sessions and Group Discussion
Spread across four different VMworld tracks, you’ll find these sessions chalk full of performance details that you won’t get anywhere else. They’ll also be recorded so if the sessions you want to see aren’t being hosted in your region, you’ll still get access to it.
See the VMworld catalog for a more detailed abstract and list of speakers!

TAM Customer Day
For our customers that are part of the TAM program, Performance will be represented with a unique performance breakout and specialist roundtables the Sunday before VMworld.
New this year for VMworld 2017 in Las Vegas, we will be offering a pre-VMworld bootcamp focused on vSphere platform performance.
vSphere Advanced Performance Design, Configuration and Troubleshooting
The VMware vSphere Advanced Performance Bootcamp provides the most advanced technical performance oriented training available about vSphere performance design, tuning and troubleshooting. VMware Certified Design Expert Mark Achtemichuk and a team of VMware Performance Engineers will cover a broad range of topics that cover all resource dimensions including the ESXi scheduler, memory management, storage and network optimization. Attendees will learn how to identify the location of performance issues, diagnose their root cause and remediate a wide variety of performance conundrums using the many techniques practiced by the most seasoned vSphere veterans and other VMware experts.
Ask The Experts
This program allows you to book some one-on-one time with various highly skilled VMware professionals. Performance experts will be available to sit down and talk with, as well as challenge them with your most difficult questions. This is a great forum to get specific questions answered or to explore your particular environment.
Hands On Labs
Lastly, don’t miss the new Performance focused Hands-On-Labs.
- HOL-1804-01-SDC vSphere 6.5 Performance Diagnostics and Benchmarking
This Performance lab is always extremely popular and has been rebuilt to include topics such as using benchmark tools like DVD Store and Weathervane, rightsizing your virtual machines, how power policy affect performance and basic troubleshooting of CPU, MEM, storage and Network dimensions. With over 5 hours of content, you’ll need to take this lab several times.
- HOL-1804-02-CHG vSphere Challenge Lab
This challenge format lab, in which you take the lead and diagnose and fix various vSphere issues, includes new scenarios around vNUMA, Latency Sensitivity, Poor Performance and Resource Pools. This is great way to experience some off the most common performance issues and how to resolve them in a fun and prescriptive way.
2017 will be a banner year for the Extreme Performance Series and we look forward to you joining us! Look out for a few surprises such as, draws for Frank & Niels new Host Resource Deep Dive Book (https://twitter.com/hostdeepdive), performance stickers and I’m told Melvin the Monster VM will even make some appearances 😉
See you at VMworld 2017.
