Quick HRVMUG Meeting Report

Last night members of the Hampton Roads VMware Community met at Jillian’s in Chesapeake to take the first steps towards reviving the Hampton Roads VMUG. Over 20 people attended the meeting. The room was not optimal for the meeting, it was a little louder than expected, but overall things went very well. It looks like there is plenty of interest in the area to get this thing rolling again.

Great meeting and thanks to all who attended.

If you are interested in keeping up with what is going on with the Hampton Roads VMUG please join VMUG (it is free) and subscribe to the Hampton Roads, VA VMUG Workspace. We will use the forum and mailing list located there for future announcements.

A special thanks to ABS Technology Architects for sponsoring the room and the refreshments. Also, thanks to Brian, @vmroyale, for providing a copy of his VCP5 Study Guide for a door prize.

David Woods and Michael Perry started the meeting with an overview of what VMUG is and outlining the plans for the future of the HR VMUG.

I presented a short overview on deploying vCOPs. The guys from ODU gave an awesome presentation on how they are using vCOPs for View to monitor the User Experience in their VDI environment.

To wrap things up David and Michael provided some information on the virtualization training available through the vITA and ITN programs at TCC. They also provided information about online resources available to the community such as the ProfessionalVMware.com vBrownBags, VMware’s Hands On Labs, and AutoLab lab kit.

There is a survey form located at http://vexpert.me/HRVMUG226 If you attended the meeting please take a minute to complete the survey.

For those that were unable to attend last night you are also welcome to complete the survey to provide input on what you would be interested to see at future meetings (or more importantly how you would like to help out). Remember this is a community driven effort and it will only be successful with input from the community.

Currently the plan is to meet quarterly and the next meeting will be scheduled in late May or early June. Already looking forward to it!

Stay tuned…
