In less than two weeks time the now legendary Nordic VMug will take place at the Scandic Hotel in Copenhagen.
If you haven’t been to VMworld this is probably the VMug to attend, as it is shaped like a mini VMworld. There are keynotes, different tracks to choose from, giveaways and actually also something that looks like a small Solutions Exchange where the sponsors have stands, on which you can talk technicians and sales people from the respective sponsors and exhibitioners. Usually this a really nice way to have one to one with vendors where you can ask your questions without standing up in a room with 400 people to ask your question.
And as usual you will be joined by around 400 of your peers, fellow vSphere admins, powercli and java scripters. And I can truly say, that there is a huge variety in costumers, you will find them with setups that has 2 hosts and 25 VM’s up to 20.000 VM’s and 2.000 hosts. So there WILL be someone there with a setup close to yours, with whom you can talk to about theirs or your own setup. This networking part is the key in VMug, you’ll be able to connect with a lot of other costumers and VMware staff, that can help you in your day to day life,
If you haven’t signed up already you can head over here to do so, and if you work with VMware I encourage you to do so.
The setup of speakers this time, pretty much reads like who’s who of VMware fame. The opening keynote will be performed by Jeremy van Doorn, who has been one of the cohosters of #Vmworld TV.
Then there will be VMware superstars like the now returned Frank Denneman, with the closing keynote talking about the latest cloud move by VMware, where they can put VMware Cloud on Amazon Web Services Cloud.
The ever pleasent Cormac Hogan will once again come to our VMug, this time to speak about Cloud Native Application projects that are running at VMware. Cormac is also know for his deep insights into VMware Storage.
Duncan Epping also again has agreed to come and give a presentation about vSAN, and this time will give us some insights on the roadmap and the future he sees for vSAN in the coming years.
Mike Foley of VMware will do a presentaion on Security features of vSphere, and most likely give a deep dive in to the new cool vSphere 6.5 security features that was just released. Security and Compliance is an ever increasing part of a vSphere Admin’s life, so be sure to attend this one.
Then there’s Lee Dilworth who previously has done presentation of vSphere streched Clustering along with Duncan. This time he will talk about the way vSAN I/O actually works. You can expect some good insights into this product.
There will also be sessions from Ghaleb Zekri from VMware, Simon Eady a VMug Leader, Andrea Mauro from Italy, Brian Knutsson from Atea, Grant Orchard from VMware , Michael Ryom & Nicolai Sandager from ProAct, Simon Todd from VMware, David Hill from VMware and Marteinn Sigurdsson from Thekking of Iceland
