It's that time of year again for VMworld in San Franciso! This year, F5 and VMware are partnering on many fronts to show the strength and capabilities of our partnership, in particular when it comes to Horizon and AirWatch.


First, check out the F5 and VMware Hands-on-Lab for End User Computing. Since the initial release of the lab in May of this year (check out the blog post here), the latest lab to be released at VMworld includes load balancing of VMware Identity Manager (formerly known as Workspace Portal), the latest F5 iApp for Horizon for simple and seamless configuration, as well as Global Traffic Management (using BIG-IP DNS). Big thanks to Matt Mabis, Bryan Salek, and Mosa Emamjomeh from VMware for their help getting the latest enhancements into the lab!

Next, I'll be presenting 2 End User Computing focused sessions this year at VMworld. The first session is with two great colleagues of mine from VMware - Nick Jeffries and Mark Ewert. This session, EUC5516 - Delivering the Next Generation of Hosted Applications is a panel discussion of seasoned experts who will share their real-world experience for integrating VMware and F5 technologies to support existing or new Server Based Computing (SBC) infrastructure.

The second session is EUC5711-SPO - Technical Deep-Dive and Demo - Better Together with VMware End User Computing and F5. Mark Ewert and I will showcase the tight integration between VMware‘s End User Computing and F5's Traffic Management solutions. We'll show you the in's and out's of designing, implementing, and integrating real-world solutions with F5's BIG-IP platform to deliver applications securely, intelligently, and at scale.

Try the labs, come and ask questions, see the demos, and take a deeper dive into the F5 and VMware solutions at VMworld 2015!
