VMware User Group president shares members' cloud challengesDate: Aug 30, 2013
With 80,000 members across all verticals, the VMware User Group (VMUG) has a comprehensive perspective on the challenges facing virtualization administrators in the cloud era.
"It's really a cross section of IT," VMUG President Mariano Maluf said at VMworld 2013.
The VMware User Group has about 180 chapters worldwide that hold meetings, provide training and offer other benefits to members. In this video, Maluf, the cloud architecture lead for the Coca-Cola Company, explains VMUG's relationship with VMware and talks about member interest in two of the major themes at VMworld: software-defined networking and hybrid cloud.
