APAC Virtualization Podcast

All things virtualisation in the APAC region

VMDownUnderground party 2013

I’m very please to thank Veeam, NetApp and VMUG for sponsoring the VMDownUndergroud party which aims to get virtualization folk to talk together before vForum in Sydney.

The format is the same as the last two years, although the venue has changed. The format is drinks and snacks for a couple of hours, letting you mix with other people who are going to be at vForum.  Catch up with old friends you meet once a year or make new friends, we encourage the sponsors to also send their tech people so bring questions for the sponsors. The venue is Cohibar, which is closer to the vForum venue and has view of Darling arbour.

Head over to EventBrite and register, we will see you there.

VMDownUnderground 2013

WOW, it is getting close to vForum Sydney, you can pre-register at this site.

Like the last two years we ill be organizing the community warm-up party for the night before the conference starts. So book your travel to be in Sydney on Sunday afternoon so you have time to freshen up before we get started.

We haven’t finalised a location but the format will be the same, hang out with the other community connected people and have a drink and some nibble with the compliments of our awesome sponsors. This year we’re working closer with the VMUG guys so we should have a wider range of people to talk with.

When we’re a little closer we will put tickets up on EventBrite as usual.

Mike Laverick was joined by Alastair Cooke to talk with, friend of the podcast, Frank Denneman about how PernixData’s FVP product can alleviate storage performance issues on vSphere without re-architecting the SAN.
