London VMUG - 14th June 2018

When:  Jun 14, 2018 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM (GB)
Associated with  UK - London VMUG

Join us for our summer 'LuxurY' meeting

This is a great opportunity to meet with your peers to discuss the latest trends, best practices, and technology! You'll find all the latest updates from VMware and VMUG, sessions from our sponsors and great community content too. If three busy rooms across the whole day is not enough for you, then please join us for further conversation and networking opportunities at our now traditional follow-on 'Luxury vBeers' event.

Please also join the UK-London Community to connect with other members and stay informed for upcoming meetings. 

Meeting Agenda

As usual, we've got a great mix of content for you all, so since this is a User Group, that's where we start...

Community Content

Chris Porter: Kubernetes - The Sysadmins Ticket Onboard the DevOps Voyage.
Kubernetes looks like it is going to be one of those SysAdmin Survival Skills. Join Virtual Design Master Chris Porter on a voyage of discovery. 

The Certification Panel 
Dave Simpson moderates a discussion around all things certification, featuring panelists who either can't do enough certifications or have simply let those 'your cert will lapse' dates pass them by. Bring your questions and opinions!


Not one, but two sessions delivered by some VMUG supporters from VMware who will need no introduction to most of you, plus a return to LonVMUG for an author fresh from a rather successful book launch last year... 

Duncan Epping, Chief Technologist, Storage & Availability: Evolution of vSAN
vSAN has grown faster than any other hyper-converged solution out there. Are you curious how it all began, but more importantly how it may evolve in the upcoming years? Duncan will talk through the history and current state of vSAN, and then demonstrate where vSAN may be evolving in the upcoming releases.

Niels Hagoort & Frank Denneman
They're back! The authors of the VMware vSphere 6.5 Host Resources Deep Dive, which launched pretty much at the Summer LonVMUG last year are back with a preview session on content they hope to deliver at VMworld 2018. 


We graciously thank our Gold sponsor Blue Medora and our Silver sponsors IGEL Technology and Login VSI for their support of London VMUG.

Luxury vBeers

As this is our LonVMUG Summer meeting, we like to round off the day in style with Luxury vBeers. This year we're relocating for an evening at Anspach & Hobday, 118 Druid St, London SE1 2HH, which is at the City end of Bermondsey, 10 minutes walk from Bermondsey underground station (Jubilee Line) and closer to Tower Bridge and the Shard than we've been previously. This will be a limited capacity event, with tickets handed out during the day at LonVMUG.
The evening will feature
  • Beer tasting
  • Brewery Tour
  • Food
  • Beer and a glass to take home
All done by 9PM, so you'll have plenty of time to get home before you turn into pumpkin.
