Day 2 at VMworld did not start with a general session as it did last year. It had been cancelled at late notice. I cannot say this is a big miss. Last year the general session was a short of commercial in which several VMworld sponsors entered the stage to tell the audience how great their solution was. So this year it all started at 08:00 when the hand on labs opened and at 09:00 with breakout sessions.
I attended around 6 sessions. Some of them interesting, some pretty boring. I will make a posting on some of the interesting sessions like the one about Storage I/O Control. The one on Site Recovery Manager showed some new features. Host Based Replication and the ability to fall back are the most appealing ones. Later more on that in a separate posting.
The second day ends traditionally with a big party. This time the party was given at the Forum, a big hall in the centre of Copenhagen. The theme was the sixties and seventies. Good food, drinks and entertainment.
