Norway VMware User Group Meetings – May/June 2017

I’m delighted to report that I’ve been invited to speak at the upcoming Norway VMUG (VMware User Group) meetings. These take place in three different cities over the week of May 29th (week 22), with three meetings in three days. On Tuesday, May 30th, the Oslo VMUG will take place. On May 31st, it’s the turn of the Trondheim VMUG and we will finish with the Bergen VMUG on June 1st.

I am going to broaden the scope of the conversation at these VMUGs, and talk about Storage Policy Based Management (SPBM) in general. Of course, we will look at it in the context of vSAN and VVols, but also how it is now being  used in more mainstream features such as Storage I/O Control as well as vSphere Encryption, both of which appeared in vSphere 6.5. And hopefully share some more thoughts and ideas of where SBPM is heading.

 You can sign up for the events at the VMUG Norway page, and check out the actual locations of the meetings. My understanding is that Christian has also organized a vBeers event in Bergen after the event (not sure about the others at this stage). I really hope to meet many of the Norway VMware community at these events. Many thanks to Christian, Morten, Erik and Lars for their kind invite. I’m really looking forward to visiting the beautiful country of Norway.
