What better place to celebrate the launch of HCX Enterprise than the ultimate tech meetup, VMworld 2019? Join us next week to meet with VMware HCX experts to chat, plan, whiteboard, strategize, learn, opine, and/or contemplate about your cloud migration needs. Here’s an at-a-glance guide to help you find the sessions, labs and presentations (and t-shirts) that are right for you.

 

Sessions and Hands-on Labs:
The good news is there are 31 sessions and ways you can learn more about some aspect of HCX. There will be a quiz following VMworld, so plan your schedule builder accordingly.

Brought to you by VMware’s William Lam, Staff Solution Architect, and Emad Younis, Product Line Manager, this session will take a look at different techniques on migrating workloads between on-premises to data centers, on-premises to cloud, and cloud to cloud. Migration options can range from exporting a handful of workloads to migrating several terabytes of data to complete a data center evacuation in just a couple of weeks. We will also take a look at the pros and cons associated with each migration option.
(Plus, we’ll have some of the most creative swag you’ll find!)


 

But wait, there’s more! Keep learning about HCX at the Meet the Experts Roundtables throughout the week, at Cloud City, Whisper Suites, or we can whiteboard on napkins over coffee somewhere near the Moscone Center.
