Throughout 2016, I’ve presented multiple sessions on Multi-site with NSX, Cross-VC NSX, and Disaster Recovery. If interested, you can view some of the public presentations I gave this year at EMC World and VMworld below. I’ve also listed the repeat session if the session was presented more than once and if both sessions were recorded. (more…)
