Day for Failure | Celebrate Failure
Similar to FailCon, and held a week prior? Seems more international, but with roots in europe in seems, perhaps as a counter to the silicon valley oriented FailCon, which would serve the US. So will these guys cover asia as well, or is that an opportunity for another organization?

VMware KB: After repeated SAN path failovers, operations that involve VMFS changes might fail for all hosts accessing a particular LUN
iSCSI issue. Too many VM files being simultaneously accessed on the same LUN will cause a lockup due to SCSI reservation errors. Workarounds are to reset the LUN interface, better distribute VM backing file load, reduce the number of VM's per LUN, or switch to NFS which does file level locking rather than bus level.
