There's a Script for That: Automate your VM Deployments,
Ken Horn, Senior Server Engineer, Lifespan
In what we hope to become recurring "There's a Script for That" community talks, we'll share some tips, tricks, techniques, lessons learned and a script used to mass deploy your VMs with consistent results each and every time.

The Six Practices of Business Continuity,
Patrick Benson, Senior Architect of Business Continuity, Sayers Inc.
Learn the six practices of the Business Continuity Institute’s (BCI) framework for ensuring resiliency in your organization. This presentation will cover the complete BC lifecycle from developing a culture that is prepared to deal with disruptions, to exploring which technologies are needed to protect your infrastructure and how to validate those solutions.

Seeing the light in Logs,
Matt Bradford, Senior Technical Account Manager, VMware
The world of logs might seem scary to some, but the truth is if you can search the web you can search through logs. In this session, you'll learn how you can hone your troubleshooting skills and leave up from an SR Jockey to a Root Cause Rockstar! In this session, we'll take a look at real customer cases and show you how you can leverage vRealize Log Insight to quickly identify issues and prevent them from happening. We'll also look at how vRealize Log Insight can be integrated with other VMware products to give you the complete picture and mitigate issues without having to log in!
