Registration is now open for the second annual combined national UK VMUG is being held on Thursday 15th November 2012 from 8am-5pm with a pre-event vCurry reception the night before from 7pm-9pm.
The location is the same as last year:
National Motorcycle Museum
Bickenhill, Solihull, West Mids,
The day promises to be packed full of in-depth technical sessions, demonstrations and partner exhibits with a speaking line-up that can only be beaten by VMworld itself.
There are presentations by some of VMware’s premiere knowledge experts, including resource and availability gurus Duncan Epping & Frank Denneman, VCDXs Hugo Phan & Aidan Dalgleish, Mr. VMware Storage, Cormac Hogan and automation luminaries Alan Renouf and William Lam along with many others.
You can hear all about VMware’s vision of the Software Defined Data Centre from VMware’s European Chief Technologist Joe Baguley as well as Staying Sharp in IT from well known EMC industry expert Scott Lowe.
What is also exciting is there are a large number of community presentations by independents giving you the real how-to from the trenches sans the marketing.
I’ll be presenting a session on vSphere Networking and Converged IO with Blade Servers. I will be going through how blade servers bring converged IO to vSphere Networking and what design options you have to ensure high performance and availability.
The other community presentations are:
Ricky El-Qasem | Creating VMware Apps for Novice Programmers
Chris Dearden | A Techie’s Guide to Getting the Most Out of IT Support
Mike Laverick | Building my vCloud Director Home Lab
Tom Howarth | Deep Dive on Desktop Design for VDI
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.
