Meeting Agenda


Everything You Wanted to Know About vRA8 But Were Afraid to Ask - Christopher Lewis, Community Session.
vRA8 is a significant re-architecture from the previous 7.x releases. Join Chris Lewis to discover how the changes will impact you and how best to tackle the new version.

VMware EUC, from MDM to EXM - Adam Matthews, Solution Engineer, Digital Workspace - NEMEA, VMware.
Join Adam on a Journey through the Changing Digital Workspace, from AirWatch to Workspace One, including how VMware Workspace One enables Employee Experience Management (EXM) and a "VMware on VMware" look at the experience of a new starter.

EC2 Image Builder - It's Not Just for EC2 - Chris Porter, Specialist Solutions Architect, AWS.
For those of you who enjoy manually patching your VM templates monthly, or worse, waiting for every new VM to catch up with months of missing updates, look away now. For everyone else (that's pretty much everyone, right?) come and find out about a new service from AWS that I've been playing with recently. EC2 Image Builder was launched at re:Invent 2019 and is not just for EC2. In this session you'll get an understanding of what EC2 Image Builder is, how it works, how it can be used to update on-premises VMware images and how it can be integrated with VMware Cloud on AWS. 

VMware Cloud on AWS 'Under the Covers' look at AWS integration - Aidan Dalgleish, Principal Architect, Advanced Customer Engagement: VMware Cloud on AWS, VMware.
In this session, you'll hear from members of the VMware Cloud on AWS EMEA Customer Success team, who have directly supported many of the EMEA based VMware Cloud on AWS deployments. Discussion topics will include an initial tour of the SDDC, how the AWS integration is implemented and an insight into customer questions/challenges seen in 'real world' deployments.

Community Panel Session


We graciously thank our Gold sponsor Runecast for their ongoing support of London VMUG.


How to Optimise and Secure Your VMware Environments with Runecast Analyzer
 - Stanimir Markov, CEO, Runecast. 
On average, Runecast's knowledge automation platform delivers an 85% reduction in time spent troubleshooting outages and incidents, as well as automating compliance against key security standards (PCI-DSS, DISA-STIG, HIPAA, BSI, CIS, VMware Hardening) and hardware compatibility. In this session, Runecast CEO and co-founder Stan Markov (VCDX #74) will provide a deep dive demo of the software in production, highlighting some use cases along the way.


We will be heading over to the Cittie of York (22 High Holborn, London WC1V 6BN) for vBeers at the end of the days meeting, where you can carry on discussions and enjoy additional networking opportunities.
