If your going to be in Las Vegas for the annual 2013 VMware Partner Exchange, why don’t you come and check out my sessions on vSphere 5.1 covering the vSphere web client and vCenter components like Single Sign-On

Thursday, Feb 28, 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM
CI1544 – vSphere Web Client – Technical Walkthrough
With the release of vSphere 5.1 was a new primary client for the management of vSphere Solutions. With this session we will build competency in the adoption of the vSphere Web Client by highlighting the differences, easing the initial reaction to a Web Client and show you how to wow your customers with real world use cases

Thursday, Feb 28, 10:15 AM – 12:15 PM
CI1545 – vSphere – Deployment Best Practices
With the new technologies introduced with vSphere 5.1 many unanswered questions exist with designing and deploying the vSphere 5.1 environment. This session will share best practices learned from the field and provide common scenarios with recommended configurations of vCenter, Single Sign-On, Inventory Service and the web client that will future proof your customers environment. This session has now been extended to include Kyle Gleed (@VMwareESXi) discussing best practices on deploying and working with vSphere hosts (ESXi)

I will also be around supporting other breakout sessions and the VMware Boot Camps so if you see me, please don’t hesitate to say hi, it’s always good to place faces with readers of this blog and maybe answer a question or two. If you are interested in speaking with the developers of the vSphere Web Client then they would love to hear your thoughts, reactions etc and we will be arranging meet and greets throughout the conference, contact me for details here.

Now it would be great for you all to come and listen to me speak but we also have many other great vSphere evangelists discussing vSphere 5.1 technologies and here is a couple of vCenter related specific sessions also worthy of a mention.
