VMworld 2021, 5 must watch EUC sessions

The VMworld 2021 catalog is online and there is a lot to choose from. If you are looking for sessions related to the Anywhere Workspace, check out these EUC sessions.


The first session I recommend you should watch is all about our EUC Vision and announcements with Shawn Bass. This session shows how we move forward with the Anywhere Workspace solution and will include the most important updates. If you are looking for one session that covers the updates without going into depth, this is the one for you.

Building on the Anywhere Workspace keynote, Shawn Bass, CTO for VMware EUC, will go in-depth on the vision and announcements for VMware Workspace ONE and Horizon. Part 1 cover the critical relationship between employee experience and zero trust security, as well as the role of automation.

Following up on the previous session, Shawn Bass will go into the weeds on SASE and Horizon. After the first Keynote, there is still be a lot to be told. So if you are looking to learn more about enabling Multi-Cloud Virtual Desktops & Application Delivery, this is the one for you.

Solution Keynote Part 2: Technical Deep Dives on SASE and Horizon [EUS2467]

The EUC Solution keynote continues with a deep dive into two important topics. First, Shawn Bass will talk about VMware SASE, VMware Secure Access, and what they mean for end-user computing strategies in a world of distributed work. Next, we will take look at what’s new in Horizon, and a deep dive into what’s coming next.

Ever wondered where the “Extreme” bit from Blast Extreme is referring to? In this session, seeing is believing. Johan Van Amersfoort, who recently wrote his second book VDI Design Guide Part II, will share his knowledge and expertise in this technical session. With demo’s, usecases and customer experiences, Johan, together with Matt Coppinger and Spencer Pitts, will blow you away.

It’s also one of the sessions that got the VMworld People’s Choice Award, so make sure you check this one out!

Blasting your way into the Extreme with VMware Horizon [EUS1834]

You will witness VMware Horizon hosting insanely intensive workloads, from cloud gaming and immersive VR training to movie making and warfighting simulation. We will show what it takes to extend VMware Horizon beyond your typical VDI use cases and into the realms of media production, gaming, simulation, training and more. You will also learn how customers are utilising VMware Horizon, Blast Extreme and more to deliver next generation services during a global pandemic. Oh, and did we mention that we will show you some demos which will blow you away? This is a must-see session for any EUC enthusiast!

You can ask any question and the expert will answer it the best they can, as long it has something to do with EUC 🙂

[EUS1289]

At VMworld 2020, Johan Van Amersfoort presented The Nerdfest VDI Demo which blew the audience away because of the great demos which involved Horizon, Bitfusion, GPUs, ML, etc. The Nerdfest VDI Demo was an enormous success and deserves a 2021 edition. For The Nerdfest EUC Demo, Johan has teamed up with mobility expert Jon Towles to bring you a next-level, demo-packed session that will combine the slick Day 0/1 onboarding experience, with some custom-built Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub Virtual Assistant (AVA) workflows, and integration into VMware Horizon for modern managed, full clone desktops.

New year, New job

This year I am coming up to a 4 year tenure at VMware, I started out as a Graduate in Cork, Ireland and in 2019 I moved back to the Netherlands to join the Field Solution Engineering team. In these past years I always had a special curiosity in the Digital Workspace and was named Subject Matter Expert in this field.

Now during the pandemic most of us need to Work From Home and if you need some insights you can check out my blogpost about it. But if anything it has showed up that the Digital Workspace is more important than ever. As I always had great interest in the Digital Workspace and the importance of it nowadays, I decided to join the Digital Workspace Business Unit within VMware.

I am very happy with this opportunity and expect some Digital Workspace related blogposts this year!

VMware Announces Intent to Acquire Nyansa

On 21st January 2020, VMware announced its intend to acquire Nyansa (“knee-ans-sah”) . This announcement does not completely come out of thin air, as it part of the vision VMware announced back in January 2019:

Revolutionising SD-WAN with Network Edge

Network Edge connects and enables critical functions where the customer requirements for transformation reside — at the Edge of the Enterprise — at the branch, in the cloud, and in the data center..’

With this acquisition, VMware keeps building on its belief that SD-WAN has unlimited potential in supporting technological advancements in the networking world.

So, who is Nyansa?

We’re Nyansa (“knee-ann sah”). It’s a word from the Akan language spoken in Ghana that means wisdom from learning. Go figure. Engineers named the company, what do you expect?

Yeah we’re weird––but wonderfully humble. Unlike a lot of folks, we don’t think of ourselves more highly than we ought, but we ARE wickedly smart.

We dig data, I mean REALLY dig. It’s as simple as that. We have a bunch of PhDs from MIT, and MBA types from Harvard, Cisco/Meraki, Aruba Networks, Google guys and so on and so forth. And we’re as diverse as diverse gets. Despite all that, our geeks know how to code, right, the first time, every time. And it shows. We hope. 

https://www.nyansa.com/company/

“The acquisition of Nyansa will accelerate VMware’s delivery of end-to-end monitoring and troubleshooting capabilities for LAN/WAN deployments within our industry-leading SD-WAN solution,” Sanjay Uppal, VP and GM of VMware’s VeloCloud Business Unit. “Nyansa is a proven solution that solves many of the shortcomings of today’s vendor-specific solutions.”

As you can read, VMware keeps investing in technology to suit their customers and give them the best possible products. And with this acquisition, VMware keeps building towards a better and true SDDC (Software Defined Datacenter).

VMware Sales Academy 2017 Spotlight Series – Remi Schipperus

When I started at VMware in Cork, Ireland, I wrote a blog to share why I joined VMware.

I’ve always been interested in technology and helping people with technical problems. After working part-time in sales and finishing my Electrical Engineering Degree, I wanted to combine both my technical knowledge and the sales experience. Making the decision to enter the SE Sales Academy was easy because it combines both at a company that is on the edge of technology.
