TechXpress – Virtualising T1 Apps – April 2009

Last week was my second TechXpress seminar held in Auckland. The presentation was about Virtualising T1 Apps, specifically SQL and Exchange.

It coincided well with the VMware Communities Round Table Podcast #42 where virtualising SQL was discussed at length. Prior to the Podcast John Troyer set the panel and listeners some homework to read a recently released White paper, so over the last week my head has been well and truly crammed with virtualising SQL information.

Once again, great presentation and nice relaxed atmosphere.

By attending your local TechXpress, you hear about the latest developments from VMware and our vendor partners. Furthermore, the venues have been selected to provide a relaxed, fun and informal environment to facilitate open conversation and provide you with an opportunity to network with your peers.

Well I’m not a pre-sales or post-sales consultant and I’m not a reseller, but i thought i would register my name and see if they would allow me to attend. They Did!
