vCoffee Links #14 – Catching Up
It has been a good while since my last vCoffee links post. There has been a lot going on and I have been pretty busy. Took the VCP6 Delta Beta Exam a week or so ago and I have been working on a VCP6 Study Guide. Still working through the sections, more VCP6 Objectives will be posted this weekend. There are a couple of VCP6 Beta Exam experiences in the links so be sure to check them out.
Other than that, just a lot going on. I want to take a few minutes to thank the folks that have sponsored vHersey.com. Be sure to check them out. The sponsors are available at the top of every page and post. If you are interested in sponsoring vHersey.com there are spaces available, just sign up here.
I will be presenting a vBrownBag on VCP6 Section 3 (Storage) on May 20th. Been a while since I have presented a vBrownBag. Looking forward to it.
Enough from me, now on to the links.

Speaking of Horizon View. This post Horizon View 6 PCoIP – WAN, Limited Bandwidth, Optimise, Tune has some great info.
