My ramblings on the stuff that holds it all together
Do you want to know what VMware has planned for its next release?
Then you need to come to the London VMUG on July 17th (in London, UK), we are very lucky to be one of the few VMUGs that are able to deliver NDA content to VMware customers.
As this is NDA type content There are some caveats as to who can attend – as listed below, but for those that aren’t eligible we have something else planned that will definitely be of interest.
And, we also have the usual array of awesome COMMUNITY, VMware and sponsor technical content. e.g no sales spin, no men in shiny suits and bonus schemes, real. interesting. relevant. technical content for YOU (ok, and me too!).
Sign up and view the full agenda here: http://www.vmug.com/p/cm/ld/fid=6757
As I’m sure you understand VMware closely guard their roadmap and NDA content, we are very lucky to be able to deliver it at a VMUG, but there are some rules to prevent NDA material being leaked. If this happens VMware won’t be willing to help us deliver this content in future – so it’s in your interest to help safeguard the content – please respect this and the community spirit VMUG represents. You will have to sign a one-way personal NDA prior to being allowed entry to the NDA session.
All official VMware partners can request the content via their account manager at VMware, but to help make it clear we’ve put together an FAQ as follows.
- I am an employee of a commercial or public sector organisation and we buy VMware products, or plan to, can I go the NDA session? Yes.
- I’m a contractor and I work for a customer/consultancy, can I go to the NDA session? Yes
- I work for a storage/network/server vendor, and am a VMware partner can I go to the NDA session? No. but you can request a private session via your VMware partner manager.

This list isn’t exhaustive, if in-doubt of your status, bring a business card on the day andVMware can make a call, but please don’t be disappointed if we can’t admit you; we have an interesting update on VMware’s vision and strategy.
