New Silicon Valley Virtualization Technology User Group (VTUG)



I will be presenting an Intro to Windows Azure session at this VTUG group as well as assisting Symon Perriman with some Hyper-V and System Center session.  We would love to see you at this event!


VTUG is expanding! Silicon Valley Slam 2013 is our first event outside of New England. Membership is completely free.

VTUG is the only platform independent virtualization users group.   Our members told us they want to learn about all technologies including VMware, Microsoft, Citrix, Red Hat, etc.  And we listened!  As an IT professional, it is of the utmost importance that you look at ALL of your technology options so that you can make an informed decision and deploy the products that are the best fit for your needs. IT has to be heterogeneous and often requires multi-vendor and technology solutions to best serve our IT environments.  It is all about education and information.

As a member of VTUG, you will get the whole technology picture. You will be able to exchange information with your peers to further solidify your decisions.

VTUG is completely member focused so we always want to hear from our members about what they would like to see. Visit the VTUG web site often as things a constantly being added.
