After my session at VMworld 2012 several people requested my slide deck. That is attached here:
A large part of my presentation was lab based, which isn’t in the slide deck (obviously). If you’d like to build a lab similar to what I used you can easily do that with AutoLab. All of the lab demo that I did in my sessions at VMworld were done off of my Retina MacBook Pro using AutoLab. As of this post AutoLab doesn’t officially support vSphere 5.1 so you can’t do an automated installation with it. What I did was do an automated vSphere 5.0 installation and then upgrade vCenter and the vSphere hosts to 5.1. Works great. My rMBP has 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD and the demo flew with everything running and 3 vSphere hosts. Very pleased with it and it provided a great low-risk way to do live labs. Thank you yet again to the AutoLab team.
I need to put up a few blog posts that came out of questions after my session..but for those wondering…
