It’s that time of year again, where I gather up swag from the VMworld Solutions Exchange, and stuff a bag with goodies. This year things are bit different – this year I have two bags to raffle away for charity. I have two EVO:RAIL branded bags which have the spoils of the solution exchange split between them. To stand a chance of winning the bag you must either attend:

The UK User Conferrence Event on Tuesday, November 18, 2014 at National Motorcycle Museum, near Birminghams NEC


The 21st VMUGBE+ Meeting in Brussels, Belguim on the Friday, Novemeber 21, 2014.

…and of course, buy a ticket from me. They will be £1 a strip at the UK event, an €1 a strip at the Brussels event…

All the monies raised will be donated to UNICEF, ideally via the VMware Foundation to double the amount raised…

But for now. Drumroll. I’d like to present the 4th Annual VMworld 2014 SwagBag Awards:

I would like to thank the vendors who donated “Quality Swag” including: Citrix, FlexEra Software, X-IO, Pure Storage, Zerto, Infinidat, HP, Hitachi, Veeam, QIRX, Unitrends, NaviSite, Emulex, Shavlek, Infoblox, OneDeck, UniSys, CPacket, vBrownBag, PernixData, Plexxi, and Eric Nielson of the VMTN Community Podcast,
