Technology Live! is a one-day event organized by A3 Communication where up to four vendors showcase their technologies in action to a group of technical journalists, bloggers and analysts. A combination of presentations and demos allows each company to present its solutions with a much higher level of detail than is usually possible in traditional briefings. A highly interactive day for all participants. This year will start at London on 23, January 2017.
VMware vExpert program recognizes people that have demonstrated significant contributions to the community and a willingness to share their expertise with others. Contributing is not always blogging or Twitter as there are many public speakers, book authors, CloudCred task writing, script writers, VMUG leaders, VMTN community moderators and internal champions among this group. The primary reason for becoming vExpert certainly should not be related to any possible benefits of the program. And once confirmed you have to think more about what you can give rather to what is to be expected. But I’d be a […]
Next VeeamON conference is approaching fast: it will take place at Ernest N. Morial Convention Center at New Orleans (Louisiana) during May, 16-18 2017. If you are working with Veeam products or simple you are interested about data protection and availability you can miss this event (for more information on why attend at VeeamON 2017 see also this post: Don’t miss VeeamON 2017 event). But it’s not a free event, so there are some costs related to it, like the travel expenses, the hotel and also the event pass.

Interesting European IT events: Cisco Live 2017 – Berlin (February 15-19) Tech Field Day Extra at Cisco Live Europe 2017 – Berlin (February 15–17) Chief Data Officer Europe – London (February 20-23) Mobile World Congress – Barcelona (February 22-25)
The 13rd edition of Tech Field Day (#TFD13) will be in Austin the first week of February (February 1–3, 2017). Note that the TFD event format replaced the Virtualization Field Day (VFD) event format more than one year ago (maybe because the buzzword virtualization is no more attractive). But to be honest first editions of VFD where just called Tech Field Day, so it’s just a return to the origin. As written in a previous post the agenda is very rich with several companies and sessions in those three days:
I’m very proud and honored to be invited at the 13rd edition of Tech Field Day (#TFD13) that will be in Austin the first week of February (February 1–3, 2017). After some Virtualization Field Day, one Data Field Day and some Tech Field Day Extra, I’m back for the first time in Austin and for the first time at a Tech Field Day (TFD) event format. The TFD event format replaced the Virtualization Field Day (VFD) event format more than one year ago (maybe because the buzzword virtualization is no more attractive). But to be […]
Next VeeamON conference is approaching fast: it will take place at Ernest N. Morial Convention Center at New Orleans (Louisiana) during May, 16-18 2017. After the first edition (in 2014) and the second (in 2015), after one year with only live or local events (like VeeamON Tour), this will be the third big own event from Veeam (and it’s ecosystem). An important milestone for a company that was founded in 2006 and now one of biggest in its field (and still a good example on how the virtualization ecosystem can grow using also the ecosystem itself). […]

Now that the new VMware vSphere 6.5 is in GA, most people are starting considering to upgrade (or start from scratch) with this version, instead of vSphere 6.0 (or also 5.5). But please consider this product like a major release, there are several changes, but also new features and scalability properties that make interesting for each new environment, but also for existing customers (with an active subscription if you have a 5.5 version, so that you can also upgrade your 5.x license keys). But like each new version you have to make some consideration first […]
