VMDownUnderground Party 2014


It’s back!  Yes the VMDownUnderground pre vForum Sydney warmup party as a service is here!

In previous years this has always been the place to come to meet like minded technical people, talk about what’s happening in the virtualisation community, speculate on what will happen at vForum and warm everyone up (as a service!) ready for a special 10th anniversary of vForum in Sydney!

Event details & registration can be found here: – https://vmdownunderground2014.eventbrite.com

Due to changing in the format of vForum this year, there are only a small number of tickets available for this event, so register early and get in there!

Firstly we’d like to thank and acknowledge the sponsors for this event who will kindly be providing drinks, food and some awesome giveaways at the venue! as without them, it wouldn’t be a reality!  This year we welcome back both NetApp and Veeam!

The format is the same as the last three years with free drinks and snacks during the evening allowing you to mingle with other people who are going to be at vForum.  Why not catch up with old friends you meet once a year or make some new friends?  We encourage the sponsors to also send their tech people so bring your questions!

One person who will be missed this year is Alistair Cooke (@DemitasseNZ), who has been the main protagonist for organising these events in the past, unfortunately Alastair has had to go all the way to Paris for Openstack (so don’t feel too sorry for him).

This years venue is The Art House Hotel and we’ll be located in the Gallery Bar,  so what are you waiting for, head over to EventBrite and register, we will see you there!
