Schlagwort: VMware


Wir sind im Herbst angelangt, und die grosse IT-Veranstaltung VMware Explore (ehemals VMworld) ging vor Kurzem in den USA über die Bühne. Im November können interessierte auch in Barcelona teilnehmen.

Diese Veranstaltung haben wir zum Anlass genommen um einen grossen Event unsererseits zu planen! Ziemlich genau zwischen den Events in den USA und Europa. Und wir dürfen eine der Koryphäen von VMware begrüssen: Cormac Hogan! Doch nicht nur er wird uns dieses Jahr beehren. Wir dürfen einen weiteren Gast willkommen heissen: Johan van Amersfoort!

Es geht weiter mit den Anlässen! Wie wir es schon vor einiger Zeit angekündigt haben, haben wir für 2021 viele interessante Themen für euch rausgesucht und verpacken diese in kleine handliche virtuelle Meetings. Alles ist live, nichts ist pre-recorded.

Wir haben für euch Simon Todd von Intel (ehemaliger VMware-Mitarbeiter) organisieren können, welcher euch VMware’s Partnerschaft mit Intel näher bringt und euch interessante Informationen zum persistenten Intel Optane Speicher (PMEM) präsentieren wird.

Wenn Ihr euch fragen solltet, welche Rolle Intel beim VMware Portfolio spielt und wie ihr eure Serverdichte und Kosten optimieren könnt, ohne dass die Performance darunter leidet, dann meldet euch unbedingt an.

Hello VMUG friends!

The management board of our VMUG discussed today the dates for our 2018 agenda. That was one of many things we want to do better in 2018 and beyond. You should get the information early so you can plan your agenda too. And we look forward to welcome you to our events.

The dates

Mark the following dates in the calendar:

Locations

The locations are sought due to the fairly central location and good accessibility of public transport and individual transport in the greater Zurich area. We are always looking for good venues that can accommodate at least 50 people and are equipped with a video projector (optional media systems with microphones and speakers). If you have suggestions, if you know a good location, then you are welcome to send us an email any time.

Topics

Also in the Topics, we will be putting our heads together within the Management Board in order to be able to offer you a diversified and interesting program. If any of you would like to present something, anytime! Are you currently working on an exciting project? Do you want to talk about good and bad times in the project? Do you know an interesting product that can not be withheld from the community? Then get in touch with us and we’ll look at it together. From the community to the community. It is important that it has to do with VMware (after all, we are a VMware User Group).

Stay tuned for more information soon!

Our Swiss German VMware User Group will be present at the first VMware Cloud Summit in Switzerland! We kindly invite you to show up at our booth at the Cloud Summit to learn more about our VMUG.

1st VMware Cloud Summit

With the introduction of the cloud, IT has been revolutionized – but which cloud model is best for you and what technical fundamentals must be fulfilled in order to be able to use cross-platform systems at all? The variety of options often makes it difficult to form an objective opinion about the cloud models that are right for you.

Together with the VMware premier service providers, Swisscom, T-Systems & Axians, VMware will be showing you the latest infrastructure cloud solution, both Swiss and international. Get both technical and economic insights and see how it works and the opportunities that result from it.
