Together with Razvan Ionescu, I hosted last Friday the first VMUG Romania meeting of 2018. This time we returned to our hosts from Impact Hub, but in their new and modern home from Timpuri Noi building.
Despite our efforts on advertising the event, we took a hit for the number of participants. We may had issues due to another event ran same end of the week by HPE and VMware in Brasov.
VMUG Romania Inside the Agenda
We started the meeting with a new presenter, Jacint Juhasz from NetApp. Coming from Hungary, Jacint has great experience as speaker at VMUG Budapest. Jacint talked to us about usage of NetApp hyper converged infrastructure for business critical applications. He is a great speaker and he has tons of experience working with NetApp systems.
Next came Razvan Ionescu, with a presentation on NSX and the trombone effect, based on a real-case scenario of VLAN to VXLAN bridging.
After Razvan, I took the stage to present “Life after vSphere C# Client”. I went through the options we have on vSphere 6.5 (ESXi Host Client, vSphere Web Client, vSphere Client, and the vSphere HTML5 Web Client Fling). I will elaborate more on the topic on a future article.
Driving in the morning straight from the event held in Brasov, Cristian Radu from VMware Romania showed us what’s new in NSX 6.4 and did a quick demo into vRealize Network Insight.
In the End
My opinion is that we covered good topics for this meeting. I was happy to meet Jacint, it’s good to talk with him (especially when you hit some NetApp equipment from time to time).
Another surprise came from George, one of our recurring participants. At last VMUG Romania meeting, in October 2017, I presented my home lab, how I did it, what challenges I had. After attending the meeting, George decided to build his home lab 🙂 He went into an issue and couldn’t find the solution until this Friday. I was happy to talk and even more, I was able to find the solution. It’s so nice to see people taking action after one of your talks, feels good not to talk in vain.
