June Meeting Wrap-up

KC VMUG thanks sponsor Coraid and user-presenters from Cerner for a great event today. Please check out Coraid’s website for more information on their innovative approach to storage networking.

As a reminder, the next meeting will be the first Thursday of August (2-Aug-2012) instead of the third in order to give us a little more separation from VMworld, which kicks off at the end of the month.

Given some of the date changes we’ve had this year, the website now sports a quick calendar, which can be viewed/reviewed any time you’re needing a reminder of upcoming events.


June Meeting: Schedule Change!

The previously-scheduled meeting on Thursday, June 21 has been moved to Wednesday, June 27. We’ll also have a different sponsor and agenda, but the times should be the same. Keep an eye here for details as we flesh them out.

Call for Presenters!

The VMUG needs YOU!

Are you tired of going to meetings that seem more like just a vendor sales pitch rather than being a good technical presentation?


All it takes is some brave members who are willing to get up in front of his/her peers and present. If we could get more members that were willing to present at meetings, there would be less time consumed by the vendors. After all, it’s our meeting.

Any VMware-related topic is fair game:

  • Server consolidation success/horror story
  • vSphere feature demo
  • P2V or V2V success story
  • VDI implementation case study
  • Backup product demonstration
  • Management demonstration
  • Scripting tricks and automation jewels
  • Upgrade/patch demos
  • Something cool that no one else has seen…

Not sure if you’re up to it?

Consider this: it doesn’t have to be hard or complicated. In fact, the simpler, the better. You don’t have to take up 60 minutes; even a short, 5-minute demo could be useful to another member of the group, making the trip to the meeting worthwhile.

The group leaders want to make your meetings a valuable use of your time; member presentations are a great way to make that happen.

Interested? Shoot an email to ben.clayton@kcvmug.com and let him know.

Don’t forget: public speaking is a great bullet point for your resume!
