VMware User Group eyes European expansion

New national and regional groups launched in next 12 months

Article comments

The VMware User Group is set to expand its presence in Europe in the next year with the launch of new national and regional events.

VMUG is an independent, non-profit organisation which provides access to events, training and community support for the users of VMware's virtualisation and cloud software. The group was launched in 2010 to bring together numerous local groups across the world, and has grown from 30,000 members to 80,000 in the past two years.

To meet increased interest from users, VMUG said the group will be holding its first national conferences in Netherlands, Germany and Denmark in the next 12 months.

New regional UK meetings will also be launched next year in the South West and Yorkshire. VMUG UK membership currently stands at over 4,000.

VMUG executive director Victor Bohnert said that the expansion is aimed at "creating a cohesive network of customers and partners with a collective voice capable of impacting VMware products and services".

The user group plans to launch a virtual event for global VMUG members next year, with a keynote from CEO Pat Gelsinger. It also aims to expand its range of special interest groups, which already cover sectors such as healthcare, higher education and public, as well as technologies such as network virtualisation.

In a recent interview with ComputerworldUK, VMUG president Mariano Maluf highlighted the group's impact on changes made to controversial vRAM licensing.
