VMUG Romania Meeting – 11 February 2020

VMUG Romania invites you to the next meeting held in Bucharest on 11th February 2020 in the same cool location, PointHub. I thought it will be interesting to have an informal name for each edition, so this will be “the 2 VCDX edition”.

This edition will be sponsored by:

  • VMware – Program Sponsor
  • Hewlett Packard Enterprise – Platinum Sponsor
  • Commvault – GoldSponsor
  • PureStorage – Gold Sponsor
  • Veeam – Silver Sponsor

The opening keynote will be held by Niels Hagoort and Johan von Amersfoort.

Keynote: Fighting Cancer with VMware Technology, GPUs, and ML

We will go into details about a medical research institution customer case that realized a way to discover and detect cancer cells in an early stage using photo analyses. We will demo how vSphere technology running a machine learning application utilizing GPUs helped to make this possible. In this session, we will explain the details about GPU architecture and elaborate on how VMware vSphere ESXi supports the usage of GPUs. Learn how you can benefit from GPU compute power when using machine learning (ML) and deep learning (DL) workloads.

Niels Hagoort is a Technical Marketing Architect and VCDX #212 working for VMware in the Cloud Platform Business Unit. In his role, he covers the vSphere ESXi architecture including hardware (accelerators) and compatibility, core storage, networking, resource management, and ESXi-ARM. He is the co-author of the vSphere Host Resources and Clustering Deep Dive book series.

Johan van Amersfoort is an EUC Architect and Tech Marketing Manager working for ITQ Consultancy. He is the author of the VDI Design Guide, a vExpert since 2015, a VMware End-User Computing Champion since 2016 and the first VMware Certified Design Expert on Desktop and Mobility (VCDX-DTM) in the Benelux. He is specialized in VDI, Graphical Acceleration, and Application Delivery and a regular speaker on events like VMUGs, UserCons, and VMworld and one of the founders of VMware EUC TechCon.
