Thanks David.
Nice video and good presentation. I am fan of your training CBTs.

Do you know any specific URL / post / blog where all new features are listed and explained in detail? I checked on VMware website and I don’t find one.

This looks to be a great presentation and there must be a lot of demand for it — I’ve not been able to get it to stream more than about six minutes in. Good stuff, though, and I hope the streaming gets fixed soon.

Hi Celeritas,
Sorry you’re having trouble with the video streaming! I just ran through the video and it worked for me so I’m not sure what the issue was. Perhaps on the next post I will try a different hosting service.
I really appreciate you watching and welcome your feedback!
All the best to you,

Hi Ariel,

I too prefer to watch things on my iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV 🙂

I’m working on getting this in iTunes now and will post here as soon as the feed is ready and accepted by Apple.

Whatever gremlin was in the way seems to have disappeared so I did get to see the video. Good stuff. I have built an ESXi 4.1 test box and look foward to exploring all the new goodies.

We’ve got an EqualLogic PS4000X and I believe the latest firmware is actually ready for the new API’s. It’ll be interesting to see what difference they make with the speed of snapshots and the like.
