VMware has some interesting labs this year and one of the top labs is the vSphere 6 Challenge Lab. This was obviously one of the labs to participate in and it had some good stuff to know about. The vSphere 6 Challenge asks you to put on the thinking cap and go through fictional scenarios in order to fix real world issues. The issues were related to Operational and Performance areas. It started off with some basic stuff like how to fix copy/paste issues or fix CPU performance problems. A benchmark tool is part of the lab so it is good to see how the changes you are doing are improving/degrading VM performance. Things like – have a diconnected host or VM which will not power on and a mysteriously poorly performing VM are covered here.
So I will recommend that you go to the lab area today and do take this one – for those of you who are not at VMworld, hopefully you will have the chance to take it soon remotely after VMworld is over – if it is released publicly prior to VMworld Barcelona.
