Its that time of year again for the next London Vmug. In case you haven’t heard by now (I very much doubt it), this is a chance for like minded virtualisation geeks to get together and discuss what is happening in the industry along with some informative sessions from guest speakers talking about trends, up and coming VMware related news and other virtualisation initiatives.
The chair (Alaric Davies) and co. do a great job setting up and planning the event so why not attend even if it is your first time.
Head on over to this link to register for the meeting – http://www.vmug.com/e/in/eid=906
We have some interesting sessions this year and for the first time, Frank Dennemann will be talking about his new venture working for PernixData and the innovative technologies they are using to increase read and write operations using software at the hypervisor layer. I’m looking forward to listening to this one myself !!!
There are also some interesting discussion on VDI and my favourite Veeam guy – Hans (aka The Hulk) de Leenheer will be talking about the next new Veeam release.
Look forward to seeing you there…..

I’ve finally found some time to write about one of my favourite vendors right now and one that everybody should seriously consider as a gameplayer in the virtual computing space.
So what do Nutanix do that is ground breaking or why should you consider them to be part of your datacenter ?
And so, VMware have finally launched the hybrid cloud service that has been anticipated by quite a few weeks. It seems that they are not cutting out public cloud providers which will come as a relief to many.
We all know that Windows 8 was meant to shake up the I.T industry but the fact is that Corporate Enterprise adoption has not been exactly what Microsoft has hoped for. Windows XP is still rife at most large enterprises and they are only migrating to Windows 7 now due to the looming end date for Windows XP in 2014. How they would take on Windows 8 at this stage is beyond me.
Veeam have finally released the long awaited 2 features that a lot of companies are going to embrace….
Veeam. A name recognised in the virtual Backup and Replication world and recently celebrated its 5th birthday. If you didn’t know already, Veeam latches onto the capabilities of the vSphere API for CBT (Change Block Tracking) producing fast and reliable backups and has also extended its capabilities to Hyper-V.
