VMware Forum London is on next Wednesday (9th May). I've not been to one before and this year doesn't look like being the year either as I'll be in sunny California.
So what is it and why should you go? I've borrowed this directly from VMware's site:
What is the VMware Forum?
At VMware Forum 2012, you will have the opportunity to learn how VMware, the global leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure, together with our partners, is delivering cloud infrastructures to address critical issues such as how you can reduce IT complexity while improving security and accelerating how applications are built, deployed and run across the enterprise.
Who should attend?
VMware Forum is a one-day event aimed at application owners, infrastructure & operations teams, and desktop managers, where you will be given actionable advice on how to deliver an effective cloud strategy. Come join us at VMware Forum to help make the cloud work for you!
There should be plenty of VMware partners there to talk to as well including EMC, Symantec, vKernel, Xsigo and plenty of the other usual virtualisation suspects as well as plenty more that you won't be so familiar with but should not underestimate. There will also be a competition to win VMworld Europe 2012 tickets.
Register here. If you're going, I hope you enjoy it and take lots away from it. Here's the day's agenda:
