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.

I have worked in “the industry” for the last 17+ years, so picking up new technologies and learning as much as I can (or at least as much I need to know to be dangerous) has become second nature to me. If I was just starting out in IT today, I’m not sure where I would start. I know when I started back in the day with software packaging with WISE Package Studio, Networking was a dark art.

Achievement Unlocked - VMware Certified Advanced Professional 7 - Cloud Management & Automation Design
Written by Christopher Lewis on September 15, 2017 .
I am working away a lot at the moment in Paris, so this week was going to be one of the only opportunities I’m going to get to take exams before Christmas (scary fact - there is only 100 days left!) . So, after a jam packed 4 days at VMworld, I decided to end my week by taking the newly released VMware Certified Advanced Professional 7 - Cloud Management and Automation Design (3V0-732) exam.

Day 3 is the day after the VMworld Party and it is normally a very quiet day around VMworld. There is no General Session and a lot of people either do not attend any sessions or just leave the conference early. Personally, I only tend to minimize the sessions I go to on this day and spend some time in the Hands On Lab and just walking around the Solutions Exchange.
