Just a short one for this post. Read all about my views on VMware Cloud on AWS (VMConAWS) in this new article here . TL:DR Version VMConAWS is an #awesome joint proposition from VMware and AWS but like with most Public Cloud Platforms/Services, it isn’t without its barriers to adoption. However, we have to remember that the service is in initial availability so therefore it is expected that the service may have some limitations and options that are not available right now.

Tomorrow is AWS Summit in London. Having never been, I am not sure what to expect but I am looking forward to seeing what AWS has to offer. My journey to learn about AWS started a few months ago using the acloud.guru courses but life has gotten in the way. I am hoping AWS Summit will give me the push I need to get learning AWS again.
