March 6th was a very important date for the Netherlands VMUG @NLVMUG, they organized their first NLVMUG Conference since they are a member of the International VMUG organization. It was a very successful event with 23 breakout sessions and more than 600 VMware enthusiasts. As one of the members of the @NLVMUG leadership team I’m very proud of the result and thank you all for coming and the positive feedback.

I was present that day together with my colleague Christiaan not only to attend several breakout sessions with subjects like VSAN, NSX, Converged Infrastructure, vCAC, Operations and many more but also to present our own session. In our session we showed how much performance we could get from our shoebox sized datacenter and discussed the impact of Flash storage on your datacenter and IOPS performance. After presenting at several other events it was our first time at a VMUG event and we enjoyed it very much.

Take a look a the slide deck here: Datacenter_Schoenendoos_Spindle-vs-flash

The presentation is recorded and will be published on the NLVMUG website soon.

There will be more postings about our session soon, we will give you the complete configuration of our shoebox size datacenter, the used software and of course the results presented at our session.

If you would like to know more about our session or the NLVMUG don’t hesitate to contact us.

I work for ITQ since 2002, after 15 years of working as a technical consultant and architect I made the switch to team manager. As a team manager, I can use my experience to help my colleagues and costumers getting the most out of themselves and technology. To share my passion and knowledge I’m active within the VMware community and I’m a member of the Netherlands VMUG leadership team (NLVMUG). To me the success of technology is defined by people.
