United Kingdom VMUG User Conference agenda now live

October 5th, 2011 No comments

The first ever combined national UK VMUG is being held on Thursday, November 3rd, 2011.

It’s going to be a packed day starting at 8am with some breakfast to fuel your brain and continues with some fantastic content.

There’s a mix of partner sessions where some great companies have a chance to tell you about their wares and community sessions which is what the VMUG is all about, where fellow virtualisation users get to share their experiences.

I’ll be presenting a session on everything you need to know about upgrading from vSphere 4 to 5.

but lucky for you, that’s not all…

Joe Baguley, VMware’s Chief Cloud Technologist will be delivering the keynote, Joe is a great presenter so I’m looking forward to hearing what he has to say.

We’re also extremely lucky to have THE undisputed VMware experts, Duncan Epping & Frank Denneman doing a Q&A on vSphere 5.0 Clustering.

Simon Gallagher, a fantastic presenter at multiple VMUGs (who must live in Inception!) will be showing what’s new with his vTardis which is a phenomenal lab/training environment in which he is running VMs on both ESX & Hyper-V which themselves are VMs on a single ESXi host!

Cormac Hogan, Mr. VMware Storage will be talking about the New Storage Features in vSphere 5.0.

Dan Watson, also from VMware will be presenting on Security in the Virtual World.

Mike Laverick, our homegrown globetrotting VMUG veteran will be wrapping up the day with “Cloud Journey – Bumps in the Road”.

VMUGs are fantastic days filled with information that is invaluable to any IT person working with virtualisation. It’s not just the presentations that are useful but the chance to network with fellow IT people and share problems and solutions. Every time I attend I come back with a list of things I’ve learnt.
