Last week I had the good fortune to support the Montreal VMware vForum.  There were over 418 participants and 21 partner booths.  A packed house at the Hilton Montreal Bonaventure which was a great facility.

There were multiple keynote presentations throughout the day as well as break out sessions on a wide variety of topics.  In the morning session I was able to share the benefits of VSAN to the entire crowd and let everyone know about the Hands on Lab we setup for attendees to try out VSAN.

 

We setup 10 Chromebook workstations that were occupied the whole day.  A total of 86 customers took the VSAN lab and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive.  Both about VSAN and the fact that we made the labs available during the day.

At the end of the day there was an after party during which we gave away the Chromebooks to lucky winners while everyone was enjoying their favorite beverage.

A special thanks to our VMware friends, partners, and especially customers for helping make this a great day!  Montreal is a great city and now we know Montreal Loves VSAN!

I look forward to the next big event: Boston VMUG User Conference.
