2018 Sydney VMUG UserCon is on March 20th

Happy New Year to everyone!!! 2017 was definitely full of disruptions from VMware, and the folks in Palo Alto keep the wheels of innovation fast turning.

Saying that it is always a good idea to look at what is happening behind the curtains, meet with the experts and peers, and plan for the next technology upgrade. This is where VMUG UserCon can be of great use!

VMUG UserCon 2018

This year VMUG UserCon is promised to be more about deep-dive learning and hands-on training. Woo-hoo!!!

The primary focus is on modernising data centres and integrating with the public cloud, expanding into the digital workspace with Workspace ONE, and transforming security with solutions like NSX and vSphere.

The event is going to be held in the heart of Sydney CBD at The Westin Sydney.

The registration is already open, and it looks like it’s going to be a big hit! So don’t miss your chance to be there on March 20th 😉

vSphere Web Client

This is a logical move for VMware on the urge towards departing from the legacy technologies or third-party dependencies in their core products, and a welcomed one!

As more and more customers get used to VMware vCenter Server Appliance and vSphere Client (HTML5) in their environments, it has been just a matter of time to read news about VMware deprecating vCenter Server for Windows and vSphere Web Client.

On 25th of August 2017 it was officially confirmed the next version of vSphere would be “the terminal release” for those products, as stated in the following articles:

I personally like this change, as it helps a vendor to focus on the cutting edge technologies instead of fixing and patching what was good but not great.
