What’s in store for this VMUG? I’m glad you asked…

Ask the Experts panel
One of the most popular sessions each year at VMworld in San Francisco is the "Ask the Experts" Q&A session. If you have attended one, you quickly figure out why. No canned slide decks, or product promoting undertones. Just real questions from the audience to a panel of highly experienced and credentialed design experts. It is always a packed house, entertaining, and informative.

In the spirit of copying a really good idea, the next Seattle VMUG meeting will be doing the same thing. Do you have some questions that you’d like to hear from the panel?  Here is your chance!  Among our panel is:

Jason Horn. Jason is a Principal Systems Engineer with Starbucks Coffee Company. He was recently awarded his VCDX (#113). (twitter / blog)

Peter Chang. Peter is a Senior Systems Engineer at PernixData. He currently is a VCAP-DCA/DCD/DTD, and vExpert for 2013. (twitter / blog)

I may also be taking part in the panel, but will focus on doing my best to moderate, and prevent any fights from breaking out. If you prefer not to raise your hand in public, but have some burning questions for our panel, please send me a note, or submit a question on the VMUG forums at: http://www.vmug.com/p/fo/st/thread=1826

Product Testimonials from customers
We have two great sponsors for this VMUG. Silver Peak‘s WAN optimization products and Zertos BC/DR solution have garnered a lot of attention in their respective market segments. But here is your chance to hear a little bit more on how their products have impacted real customers. Customer stories are a great way to see if solutions deliver on their promises, and help you to see if they might be a good fit for your organization.

So come on out to the next Seattle VMUG. Bring your questions for our "Ask the Experts" panel, and hear stories from real customers of Zerto and Silver Peak. And who knows. You might just win something too.

– Pete
