It doesn’t (yet) show up in the main VMUG local meetings list, but registration is open for the April VMUG Meeting on Thursday, 24-April.
We will be spending a bit of time looking at VMware’s soon-to-be-released VSAN product, as well as EMC’s XtremeIO product: chances are, one or both could be useful for your datacenter storage needs!
As noted before, we’re now meeting at Dark Horse Distillery (11740 W 86th Terrace, Lenexa KS). We’re going to make some adjustments in the meeting space to get around the issues we had at the February meeting, so we don’t expect the same acoustic issues we had before.
Keep your eye on this website, too: we hope to make an announcement about a special March Madness event we’ve got cooking!

    Event Description

    As we all search for content to share and ways to engage our audience, we often overlook the subject-matter experts that surround us in the workplace. From your CFO to the UX team that just revamped your site, you can tap into expertise, insight and interesting stories from unexpected sources. Jake Jacobson, National Media Relations Manager at Children's Mercy Hospital, will discuss how they're transforming their top doctors from social skeptics into Twitter chat headliners, and he'll address the lessons - from surprising successes to potential hurdles - that can help you empower and showcase your experts through social media and national PR.
    Tickets are available at:
