Dennis and I will also present a session this year. Our session is titled: “Autoscale IT Today – The power of the SDDC” and we will talk about the why you want an SDDC, how to keep your job and show a cool autoscaling demo.

As you might know when you’ve visited our sessions before we alway bring some kind of nerdy gadget to support the demo. Last year it was an emergency button which kicked of workflows, The year before we brought a miniature datacenter with us. This year we’ll bring something to visually support our demo.  Here’s a teaser:
