I’m talking VDI at the London VMware User Group, 17 May 2012 – register now!

April 27th, 2012

Check your diaries, the next London VMware User Group will be on the 17th May 2012 at the.

I have the lucky task of presenting again at one of the sessions. I’m going to be talking VDI with a presentation I’ve  called for fun “Help, My VDI Project is Hell!” I’ve found many VDI projects fall apart at some stage so I’m going to be dolling out some of my strategic musings on tackling the VDI minefield and then hopefully offer some practical & useful tips to help you make your project a success if you decide VDI is for you.

Even if you don’t want to hear me drone on again and VDI isn’t something you are interested in, there’s plenty more to find out during the day with presentations from 6 community members! I think this may be a London VMUG record which I’m very proud to be part of. I’m very keen on ensuring there’s plenty of U being put into VMUGs  along with all the other presentations from VMware and other vendors.

The presentations by users are:

  • Darren Woollard: Over to You: Design Me a Highly Available Virtualised Infrastructure
  • Chris Kranz: Flexpod: The Flexible Converged Infrastructure
  • Ricky El-Qasem: Writing VMware Apps for Novice Programmers
  • Neil Mills: The vMarket – Skills in Demand for the Next Five Years
  • Steve Bryen: Management and Orch’n – What, Why & How

along with 2 great presentations from VMware:

  • Climb the Stack and Pimp your Cloud with VMware vFabric – Peter Holditch
  • The vCenter Appliance – Hugo Phan

and presentations & labs from other vendors

  • Trend Micro: Using vShield to Drive Efficiency and Costs Savings – Stephen Porter
  • Liquidware Labs: Desktop Transformation with Liquidware Labs – Dan Falconer
  • Tintri: Solving VM Storage Cost and Performance Challenges with VM-aware Storage
  • VMTurbo Labs

If you haven’t attended a VMUG before, its time to get on board! It’s a phenomenally good training/educational/networking day for techies and it’s free!
