Well I have submitted papers for the last 3 VMworlds, and unfortunately have not been selected. I’ll admit some of those previous submissions were good enough, but missed a the oomph to put them over the top.
I submitted a paper, yes, just a single paper this year, and with some help, I could be selected. This year, VMware is doing something a little different. Public voting is being considered in the select process.
The paper I submitted details how to leverage VMware vSphere, NetApp SnapMirror, NetApp SnapManager for Virtual Infrastructure (SMVI), vSphere PowerCLI, and PoshOnTap to spin up a warm DR site. I chose this topic, because this is how I set a solution up last year when VMware SRM did not support NFS storage. This session talks about how to quickly recover a SnapMirror replicated site using PowerCLI, with some PoshOnTap included.
So if you feel like voting for my session, head over to VMworld.com at the following URL: http://www.vmworld.com/community/conferences/2010/cfpvote/pcbusiness.
You will be required to login to vote, but joining VMworld.com is free.
Thanks for any and all votes, and best of luck to everyone else who submitted a paper/presentation.
