High Availability for Red Hat Virtualization Manager 4.1

Hi folks, if you missed Red Hat Summit 2017 last week, it was great time in Boston. As promised, I’m uploading my presentation on HA for RHV-M 4.1 – hosted engine.

Boston VTUG Winter Warmer

Hi Folks – if any of you are going to be at the VTUG Winter Warmer at Gillette Stadium, come find me, I’ve got a keynote at 10am at “West Side South”. If you’re going to be in the area, it’s an event that’s been going on for several years now and should be fun..

I’ll be talking about Red Hat’s strategy in the Hybrid Cloud and especially how RHV fits into that.

I believe (don’t quote me on this) that the event is free for VTUG members, and that all you need to do is register to become a VTUG member (I believe that is also free) before the event.


VTUG Winter Warmer Agenda

Date: January 19, 2017
Location: Gillette Stadium, Patriot Place, Foxboro MA

Hope to see you there,
