VMware Users Group (VMUG) – London, July 2011

It’s almost time for another London VMware Users Group (VMUG) and this next VMUG falls on July 14th (2011).  If you haven’t been to a VMUG then I highly recommend you (work allowing) head along as it is an excellent way of bringing yourself up to speed on developments in the world of VMware and also find out more on various products from VMware partners.  In attending you also get to network and meet new and like minded people who work with/in the world of IT and virtualization where real value is often gained through swapping stories and experiences.

The VMUG is free to attend and as always will have a VMUG vBeers gathering afterwards. Here are the details and CLICK HERE TO REGISTER – see you there!  Smile

The London VMUG Steering Committee are delighted to invite you to our next event. Following on from the success of the new format unveiled at the May 12th VMUG, we will continue with multiple tracks and a vCOPS focused lab, along with a Genius Bar from VMware GSS to answer any burning issues you might have.  Details are below and we are grateful to our sponsors – Arista Networks, Embotics and Vision Solutions.

Please Note: If you wish to participate in the lab, you MUST bring your own laptop/client device please! You will need View 4.6 client installed (or admin rights to install it).
