Podcast E06 – VMware Cloud Foundation in practice

First time in my podcast series that I have a guest, what more two. So this episode two VMware employees will join me – well I join them – discussing lessons learned of real life VMWare Cloud Foundation implementations and why it should be a way forward for companies.

Only using audio it is difficult to whiteboard something or show a slide, so everything we have talked about will be posted on Angieszka’s blog (below).
