Catch me at VMworld 2017!

With full credit to my colleage Rebecca Fitzhugh’s blog post for the title, I’m looking forward to VMworld this year – my 4th one if I’ve not lost track.

VMworld over the years

Over the years I’ve attended as an SE for Varrow hardly knowing anyone, again as an SE knowing more folks, as an SE manager/director with lots of executive briefings, and now for Rubrik as Technical Marketing Manager. I’m quite sure this will be my busiest VMWorld yet – 2 sessions, 2 booth presentations, tons of folks I want to catch up with, and a LOT of general Rubrik craziness + excitement. In case you’ve missed it, we’ve got a lot going on at VMworld. More details at these links.

Outside of the sessions below, you can catch me at the Rubrik Booth (#412) or I might see you in a customer or partner briefing. Feel free to message me via Twitter if you’d like to meet up.

If you’re new to VMworld, I’d highly recomend Chris Wahl’s blog post Getting the Most Value out of VMworld Technical Sessions.

We’ve even got some great “baseball cards” of prominent folks in the IT community along with a lot of #backuphero shirts.



On Monday, I’ll be jointly presenting with Rebecca Fitzhugh (given it’s VMWorld I think I should mention she’s a VCDX) on Architecting Data Protection and where Rubrik can help. We promise to keep it from being a straight up product pitch. The agenda is….

Session Agenda

Hopefully you can join us on Monday afternoon – full session details below.

After that I’ll be presenting a VMTN Community Session on Tuesday – pure education about the ransomware landscape and what you should look for in data protection products if concerned about ransomware. Given it’s a community session, there’s no Rubrik discussion in that one.

Booth Sessions

Aside from that, I’ll be presenting about Rubrik at the Lenovo booth (#314) at 3:45 PM Tuesday) – splitting the time with a magician. There’s a first time for everything.

I’ll later be jointly presenting with Lenovo at the Rubrik booth 3 PM Wednesday.
