Catch me at a VMUG in November

I’ve been fortunate enough to receive a bunch of invites to present at various VMware User Group (VMUG) meetings around Europe next month.

Come talk about Virtual SAN at upcoming EMEA VMUGs

I am presenting at a number of upcoming VMware User Group (VMUG) conferences over the next month or so. I’ll be basically doing my pitch on Virtual SAN (VSAN) along with some demos on install and configuring. On November 21st, I’ll be presenting at the UK National VMUG (for the 3rd year in a row) at the National Motorcycle Museum in Solihull. More information about the UK National VMUG here, including registration. On December 3rd, I’ll be at the Nordic VMUG in Copenhagen, Denmark. This is being held at the Bella center, where VMworld was held before Barcelona. More information…
