Registration Open for 22-Sept-2011 Meeting

With all the chaos of going to Las Vegas for VMworld, your leaders at the KC VMUG did the unthinkable: we forgot to get the registration page opened for the next meeting!

That’s been corrected, and you can register now. We meet at Boulevard Brewing Company’s Muehlbach Suite, and we kick it all off at 1:30pm with “vBeers with vBen,” an open discussion session primarily aimed at new users, but everyone is invited.

The agenda includes a presentation from EMC’s backup team on leveraging “changed block tracking” to supercharge your VM backup scheme.

We’ll also have a rundown of VMware’s recent announcements, directions and a recap of other cool bits from VMworld 2011.

See you there!


Reminder: Midwest Regional on December 6

Check your calendar; if you don’t have Tuesday, December 6 2011 reserved to come to the Midwest Regional VMUG Conference, hosted by the Kansas City VMware User Group at Arrowhead Stadium, now is a great time to do so!

Registration for the event is open, and we have a great slate of vendors and presenters on board to make a great day for the event.

Plan to stay the whole day! Don’t just come for an hour or two; don’t come for the morning and skip the afternoon! We have cool stuff in the works for the entire day; it will be worth your while to stick around…

3rd Annual Regional Meeting

The Kansas City VMware User Group is pleased to announce their 3rd Annual Regional Meeting, scheduled for Tuesday, December 6th at the nationally-reknowned home of the Kansas City Chiefs, Arrowhead Stadium.

We are also happy to announce that the day’s opening presentation will be a keynote from Chad Sakac (@sakacc) of EMC.

Additionally, you can expect breakout sessions from industry leaders in storage, networking, management, security, and of course, VMware itself. We’re also working on getting some hands-on-labs and an Ask the Experts panel session (or two) to round out the day.
