In the spirit of knowledge sharing, and in partnership with the VMware User Group (VMUG), we are excited to announce a new Virtual SAN Evaluation program.
The Virtual SAN Evaluation program, which is offered solely through VMUG, begins today. VMUG members can find more details and sign up for the program at: http://vmug.hs-sites.com/virtual-san-trial
We caught up with Brian Kirsch (Twitter: @bckirsch), who is on the VMUG Global Board of Directors and is a part of the Wisconsin VMUG steering committee, to get his thoughts on the new Virtual SAN Evaluation program and how it will benefit the VMUG community. With over 100,000 members worldwide, VMUG is the largest organization for virtualization users and continues to grow its network of customers and partners who continue to strategically impact VMware products and services.
Q) What is the Virtual SAN Evaluation program?
The Virtual SAN Evaluation program is a new product evaluation program tailored specifically for people interested in trying out Virtual SAN, VMware’s hyper-converged offering. It is a great way for VMware users to get hands-on experience with this new, innovative technology and test drive all of the features and capabilities it offers. The program is free and allows users to evaluate Virtual SAN 6 for six months. One just signs up and they will receive an email to download the software and use it in a non-production environment.
