Experts2Experts Virtualization Conference London 2011 Selling Out Fast!

It seems a lot of Hyper-V expertise is converging on London in from November 2011 for the small but brilliant Experts2Experts Virtualization Conference. I’m looking forward to learning a lot from them and listening to real world experiences of people who deal with the technologies on a daily basis. It will also be nice to meet up with a lot of on line acquaintances from the blogosphere and twitter. The conference is selling out fast. That’s due to the quality, small scale and very economic attendance fee. So if you want to meet up with and listen to expertise the likes of Aidan Finn, Jeff Wouters, Carsten Rachfal, Ronnie Isherwood and hopefully Kristian Nese have to share you’d better hurry up and register right now.

I’ll be sharing some musings on “High Performance & High availability Networks for Hyper-V Clusters”.

Perhaps we’ll meet.

I’m Attending The E2E Virtualization Conference

Well I’ve just finished doing the paperwork for attending the Experts 2 Experts conference in London http://www.pubforum.info/pubforum/E2E2011London.aspx. It runs from 18th to 20th November 2011. I’m looking forward to this one as I’m going to meet up with a lot of people from my on line network and have a change to discuss our virtualization experiences and share information in real life, face to face.

It’s good to get to attend vendor independent events and exchange information, enrich and extend our networks. I already know several people from my twitter/blogging network will be attending and I’m happy to meet up with you if you’re there. Just let me know via e-mail, the feedback option on this blog or via twitter (@workinghardinit). Well, I’ll see you there!

BriForum 2011 Europe Here I Come

As you might have read a in previous blog and noticed in the side bar, I’m of to London (UK) to attend  BriForum 2011 Europe. It’s time to get away from the wide screens overlooking my ICT empire toys and broaden my horizons  For those who think the cloud is going to take away your job … think again, I’m getting busier than ever. The reality is that we just can’t push a button and have everything up an running in the cloud. Greenfield projects and start ups might beat existing infrastructure & application architecture over the head with cloud and make those businesses run harder for their money but they will run and compete. That race will produce a huge workload.

So I’m of to dive into some sessions on Cloud, Server & Application Virtualization, VDI … should make for some interesting days. I hope to be able to talk to lots of people with a variety of experience to help find out new or alternate way to address some issues (or challenges) we need to tackle in the years ahead. Subjects like Disaster Recovery, Business Continuity, application aware storage in a virtualized environment, Geo Clustering, Site Recovery, … should gives us ample to discuss. Give us a shout if you’re there. It’s also a nice opportunity to meet up with some fellow bloggers and twitter. acquaintances.

A colleague of mine is heading to the USA, Atlanta to attend TechEd 2011 USA. So he’s crossing the big pond to get some brand new info on the latest and the greatest in Microsoft technologies on the IT Pro side of the business.

So of to London I go, onwards & always going forward in IT as there is no turning back Smile I’ll keep you posted when I find the time to do so.
