Virtualization, Cloud, Infrastructure and all that stuff in-between

My ramblings on the stuff that holds it all together

London VMware User Group VMUG Feb 10th 2011


It’s that time again, if you are in the UK – or anywhere nearby then register and get yourself over to the London VMUG.

I’m not sure if I can make this one, due to work commitments and this will be the 1st VMUG for about a year and a half where I won’t be presenting anything – so it’s safe to come out from behind the sofa! Smile

The Steering Committee are pleased to announce the next UK London VMware User Group meeting, kindly sponsored by Veeam is to be held on Thursday 10th February 2011. We hope to see you at the meeting, and afterwards for a drink or two, courtesy of VMware.
