6:00-6:15 – Opening Remarks / Host Introduction / Sponsor Introductions

6:15-7:00 – Sponsor Presentation - Pure Storage - Rewriting Tired, Old Rules

The flash performance epiphany has come and gone.  The all-flash array experience is as much about simplifying operations as it is about sub ms response times.  Pure Storage is hard at work delivering all-flash arrays with data services, operational efficacy and a support experience that customers love.  Beyond the performance and operational benefits, Pure Storage has eradicated the notion of extended support.  With Pure Storage, support costs are flat in perpetuity and controllers are upgraded at no cost every three years when support is renewed.

Winter Warmer 2014

Thank you for attending VTUG's Winter Warmer 2014 at Gillette Stadium, the home of the New England Patriots.

VTUG continues to gain tremendous momentum as it is the only technology agnostic user group whose sole mission is to provide diversity in technology choices so that members can make informed decisions to meet their technology needs and requirements. To make an informed decision, you need to know all of the options that are at your disposal. VTUG provides those unbiased options.

VTUG is the only platform independent virtualization users group. Our members told us they want to learn about all technologies including VMware, Microsoft, Citrix, Red Hat, and more! We listen to our members. As an IT professional, you need to look at ALL of your technology options so that you can make an informed decision. It is all about education and information.

VTUG is and will continue to be completely member focused and because of that,  it is extremely important that we hear from our members about what they would like to see. Visit the VTUG web site often as things are constantly being added.

Summer Slam 2012

The VTUG Summer Slam 2012 was a successful event with over 900 IT professionals in attendance and 57 sponsors. VTUG is focused on providing technical content that is useful and actionable so you can start putting to use what you’ve learned at our events right away.

Summer Slam 2012 had six general sessions and 47 breakouts. We have archived each of the general sessions and a number of the breakouts. We have provided the sessions in video format and have also provided the transcript of the sessions so you can read instead of listen. We did this because it Is a lot faster to read than to listen. In any case, you have a choice of how you consume the content.
