VMworld 2013 is just a few short weeks away, and with that comes a lot of excitement in the virtualization community. Whether or not you plan on attending VMworld, there is plenty to be excited for with the next Seattle VMUG on Wednesday, August 14th (5:00pm to 8:00pm) at the Bellevue Art Museum. If you are located in the greater Seattle area, here are a few reasons why you should block out your calendar for this event.
Great content is what the Seattle VMUG has been striving for, and I think this next one is a fine example of that. Two fantastic sponsors will be presenting.
- Veeam Backup & Replication has a tremendously loyal following. If you get a chance to use it, you quickly understand why. Big improvements are coming in Veeam Backup & Replication v7 that may alter your onsite and offsite protection strategies for the better. This is a great chance to find out more about it.
- PernixData. Billed as the first flash hypervisor, see how this solution (known as FVP) leverages server-side cache to accelerate storage performance for vSphere environments, and why it is turning heads in the industry. It just may change how you design your infrastructure
Need a few more reasons to go? Okay, well how about:
- You have a great chance at one of two iPad Minis that will be given away. Yes, the Seattle VMUG manages to find some pretty classy prizes to give away. You can’t win if you don’t show up.
- Chat it up with your fellow VMUGers. Come on over and introduce yourself. Find out what others are doing in their environments, and share a little bit about what your environment is like. If you work with virtualization or manage infrastructures, and claim that nobody understands what you do, here is your chance to surround yourself with others who do!
- Soak up the sights at the Bellevue Art Museum. Located in the heart of downtown Bellevue, it’s a great venue that has plenty of parking, and will give you an opportunity to see the exhibits
- So be sure to register and come by and say hi. You might walk away with a new iPad mini, and new ideas on how to improve your environment.
