It barely seems like 5 minutes since the last London VMUG but at the same time it feels like so long ago too. But it’s April and the agenda has been set for the next London VMUG and registration is now open.
The theme for this VMUG is “Journey to the Cloud” and it marks a departure from the format that the London VMUG has adopted up until this point. This time there will be two content tracks to choose from and some live labs available (in the same sort of style (but not scale) as VMworld).
The agenda as it currently stands is:
10.00 – 10.20 – Welcome, Alaric Davies, Chairman
10.20 – 11.00 – presententation & demo the vCloud1 -Greg Branch, Director of Architecture, Colt and Dan Senior, Virtualisation Architect, Colt
1.00 – 11.45 – Paul Martin, Quest – Private Cloud – Build for Success by Planning for Failure, with Quest Software
11.45 – 12.15 – Break in Thames where the sponsors will be exhibiting
12.15 – 13.00 – EMC
13.00 – 14.00 – Lunch in Thames where the sponsors will be exhibiting
14.00 – 14.50 Massimo re Ferre, Making sense of vShield & vCD for the “average Joe”
15.00 – 15.50 Jason Miles, Automation in the Cloud
16.00 – 16.50 Mark Craddock
14.00 – 14.50 Stuart Radnidge, Rethinking Infrastructure
15.00 – 15.50 Tom Brand, Cloud topic
16.00 – 16.50 Cloud topic TBA
17.00 – Close
17.00 – Networking Reception at Pavilion End, 23 Watling Street, EC4M 9BR
I’m looking forward to seeing how the multiple tracks format works. I recently attended my first Northern VMUG in Leeds where they tried to something similar. Ultimately it’s the users that make these events work or not so I hope that the London attendees are receptive to it.
Having said that, I may not get to go. I have registered to attend but a change in circumstances is in the offing.
Anyway, register here for the London VMUG.
