A very exciting #VMUG, #VMUGDK Nordic conference is coming up!

This year we’re featuring a record number of community speakers, as well a sweet set of vRockstar speakers.

This VMUG will be my first as a newly appointed VMUG Leader, so very excited to bring you a very nice setup.

Once again we’ll be in the Nordisk Film Cinema at Fields, and feature multiple tracks running simultaneously. Reserve January 2019 for this event. 

Besides the speakers quite a few vendors will also set up stands where you can hear about their products and they will most likely feature, different levels of swag you can bring home to the kids 🙂

You can register for the event at Eventbrite

For keynotes we’ve managed to get Joe Baguley, VP & CTO, EMEA to do the opening keynote. And the closing Keynote will be delived by Seth Shotak, Senior Astronomer SETI Institute

Among the community speakers, we have so far confirmed the following

  • Joerg Lew – Usability, Scalability, Reliability – Make Your Automation Production-ready
  • Michael Ryom – Getting started with NSX-T Data Center
  • Rasmus Haslund – Preparing for the VCP6.5-DCV certification exam
  • Anders Wickland – vSAN stretched cluster
  • Jacob styrup Bang – Aarhus University’s SDDC a year later
  • Christian Mohn / Eirik Vada – Software Defined Datacenters for Good — How we built an infrastucture for Mental Health Research
  • Mads Fog Albrechtslund – vRealize Orchestrator: Taming the beast and learn the basics without dying

Along side all the great community speakers, we’ve also managed to get a quite capable list of vRockstar speakers to participate. Just look at this lineup.

After all the sessions, there will be food and drinks and we will feature a still unknown movie and popcorn!

Hope to see many of you at the VMUG!

Nordic #VMUG meeting – Nov 20th.


So we’re closing in, on the annual Nordic VMUG conference, which will be held at Bella Center Copenhagen again. For those of you that didn’t attend last year, the concept is like a mini VMworld, in the same venue that had VMworld in 2010 and 2011. Even if you did attend VMworld this is a good opportunity

There will be a small show floor, where vendors will showcase their products and you can get a good talk with them about their products. Often the vendors sends their technicians also, so you’re not stuck with the typical sales guys you always seem to get on the phone 🙂

There will be a number of different sessions, hopefully both community, meaning costumer cases, and professional sessions by VMware people or other Vendors that does something for the Virtualization world.

This years confirmed lineup so far include the following:

  • Opening Keynote by Joe Baguley, CTO of EMEA for VMware. I’ve had the pleasure of listening to Joe quite a few times, and been invited to a lunch where he talked about VMware and the future. Joe is a great speaker with some very nice ideas on where VMware is going, and this is something you should attend if possible.
  • Closing Keynote by Shawn Bass Sr. Director, Strategy & Planning, VMware End User Computing. Not someone I’ve met before and a new face at VMware, used to be at Citrix and Microsoft before.
  • Duncan Epping (VCDX007) is doing a session, dont know about what, but Duncan’s a superstar within the VMware community, and is always good to listen to.
  • Cormac Hogan is always a pleasure to listen to, I’m still amazed about how nice and non-hyped Cormac talks about storage, and i’m guessing we will hear about VVols from him.
  • Paudie O’Riordan, has been at VMUG’s in Denmark af few times, and usually has some very good horror tales from VMware support where the costumer has misconfigured this or that. A must see!
  • Frank Denneman of PernixData, will no doubt talk about FVP 2.0 the new software from PernixData, that among other things allows the use of Memory for storage acceleration.

Besides that I know they have been called for some customers to do a session, but I don’t know of any confirmed speakers. I myself was asked, but as I’m still struggling to make the time, had sadly to decline the opportunity to speak at this big event.

I’m still hoping to make it to Bella Center, as last year was a really nice VMUG conference. It’s not meant to be a standard VMUG, but more like a mini-VMworld. And as stated earlier, even if you did attend VMworld, I would still very much recommend coming to this one as well. Even if this could be your first VMUG, you should try to attend, and make new acquaintances and network, which will be very helpful in your daily job in virtualization.
