Hi everyone, it has been a very good and very busy week. Firstly we launched updates to our Cloud Operations Management Suite. See below for more information. I also decided to update my VCP and completed the VCP-550D exam online. I have written more about this here: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/vmware-vcp-550d-exam-neil-isserow
