This week is a bit light.
I spent so much time these past 2 weeks reading the vSphere 7 documentation, rebuilding the classroom to run vSphere 7 (and doing all the patching of the Windows OS), and updating process documentation, that I missed keeping up on this post.
vSphere 7 – Released
OK, so there are a lot of things on this one note.
I’ll have a collection once you click “read more” on this post.
I’ll link the release notes here, but the collective of posts and informative notes will be linked as a collection below.
I’ve read through the 3500 pages of documentation already.
Lots of good information in there.
I have prepped a vSphere 7 What’s New that I plan on delivering to folks who would like to hear it.
Remote Access, VPN, VDI, or EUC

Lot of conversations about this these past few weeks.
I am doing a session on this today.
Thought I’d share some really good posts around that.
Brian Madden post on VMware’s Blog Site on VDI or VPN, what that means, and the considerations you should take, depending on your partners.
VMware has a Steps to Enable a Remote Workforce with Workspace ONE
This post gives the 10,000 foot view of the process of standing up Workspace ONE.
Is this week in San Diego CA. Looking forward to hearing what my team learned out there….
Is next week in Las Vegas NV. I know the WEI team has some insights into some of the announcements….can’t wait to talk with folks about what is currently under NDA…..
VMware Visio Stencils – Updated
At the end of May, updates were made to the Visio Stencils used in the VVD.
Funny…18 years without any stencils, and now…updates every 2 weeks?
VTUG (Virtualization Technologies User Group) – The Last Event

I have been a member of this group for many years now, and it is sad to see this group having its last event.
I am biased, of course, as I have been involved for years….
Those of us in New England are lucky…between VTUG, VMUG, and other Virtualization User Groups in the area, we have had the opportunity to have at least 12-24 events a year where we can network with peers, and continue our learning while contributing to the community.
If you have the time, the final VTUG Summer Slam is July 18, 2019.
It would be great to see this event have the sendoff it deserves…..
I had written this back in 2010 to a magazine, Virtual Intelligence Briefing.
I haven’t been able to find it, and people keep asking me for, “…how to start with VDI?”
I have not changed a word in this post from years gone by.
While versions have changed, as well as vendors that no longer exist, I believe that the logic applied herein is still valid.
Enjoy the Read!

Las Vegas, Mandalay Bay, August 26-29Its coming quickly. If you know of anyone going, PLEASE…let me know. Want to make sure that we include our customers in anything WEI does in Las Vegas.
VMware vSphere 5.5 End of General Support
Continue reading “Virtual Update 2018-08-20”
September 19, 2018 is coming, and many of our customers are engaged in projects getting their infrastructures up to date.It was a good five (5) year run on this version of vSphere, but all good things must come to an end.VMware has been repeatedly stating this over the past 7 months, and here is another reference back to a February post, with links and FAQs around the topic.
Something kept coming up when I’ve been chatting with customers lately. They have found out that I am snipping and keeping updates (from multiple sources), and sharing these every couple of weeks with the WEI team….and have been asked to post these notes here.
This is the first post, and I went back about two months.
This post will be a bit longer than most, and hopefully you’ll find it useful.
I will attempt to post this every two weeks, so as not to keep your inboxes too busy….
Thanks for reading!
