My ramblings on the stuff that holds it all together
Presenting at the London VMware User Group Meeting – Feb 25th
I am pleased to announce that I’ve been asked to present again at this month’s VMware London user group meeting.
I’ll be giving a follow-up on my previous Home Lab : vT.A.R.D.I.S session for which I’ll be bringing a (quieter!) demo environment which I have dubbed vTARDIS:Nano Edition showing how you can build a complex 10 node clustered ESX environment with dvSwitch, iSCSI SAN and vMotion etc. on a single physical host for study and play.
I’ll also be presenting a case study for a project I worked on virtualizing a large Microsoft Windows 2003 Terminal Server estate and will be showing some interesting statistics that we gathered along the way.
I understand the event is now fully-booked which is a great turn out!
