UK VMUG Pictures


Thanks to Frank Denneman’s post and Duncan’s great idea, we decided to create some RUN VCD shirts for the UK VMUG.  They were very popular with the attendees.








We had a fabulous array of sponsors, 37 in total, including:

VMware, Fusion-io, Quantam, Teradici, Veeam as platinum sponsors

Gold included Coraid, Embotics, Hitachi Data Systems, iland, Nimble Storage, Trend Micro, VMTurbo and Whiptail

Silver included:

6fusion, 10zig, Adtan Blue Socket, Atlantis, Avere, Commvault, Condusiv Technologies, Datacentre News, Kaspersky, Liquidware Labs, Neverfail, Nexenta, Nexsan, Nextio, Nimbus Data, Nutanix, Pivot3, QLogic, Solarflare, StorMagic, vKernel, Xangati and Zerto
