If you happen to be in (or are looking for a reason to be in) the region of Denmark near the holidays, VMware will be hosting the Nordic VMUG UserCon on December 1, 2015 at the Scandic Copenhagen Hotel. While this is a small conference, they’ve managed to pull together a pretty impressive little list of speakers and topics to cover.

This event will be an excellent opportunity for people in the virtualization and cloud computing world to get a feel of what the larger VMworld conference has to offer. This event will be a bit smaller than VMworld, but VMware is packing it full of interesting and knowledgeable speakers. There will also be a lot of opportunities for attendees to see many of the wonderful products that are available in VMware performance monitoring.

Speakers and Topics at Nordic VMUG

VMUG VMware user conference - vmware performance monitoring

In case you can’t make it to VMworld, VMware holds multiple smaller events during the year. Many of the same popular keynote speakers that make VMworld so popular also speak at the smaller events like VMUG.

Among the speakers at this event will be Duncan Epping. He is a Chief Technologist at VMware and the author of several books. He writes for the virtualization blog yellow-bricks.com. At this year’s event he will talk about the present state of Virtual SAN and what is coming up in the near future.

Paudie O´Rourdian knows a lot about VMware support and has spoken in Denmark twice before. His portion of the event is always popular. This year he will be discussing how to configure and install Virtual SAN Stretch Cluster. 

William Lam‘s field of expertise is automation, integration, and datacenter operation. He has spoken at VMworld several times. His talks always manage to draw the crowds and can be a tough ticket to come by. This will be his first time at UserCon. He will be talking about how non-developers can use and navigate the vSphere API.

Welcome Some Familiar Speakers from VMworld

Virtualization networks and Cormac Hogan are two names that just seem to go together. Cormac is also well known in many other aspects of VMware’s business, earning him the nickname Mr. VMware Storage. His portions of this event tend to be heavily attended and always generate a buzz. This year he will be speaking about the recent enhancements to the core vSphere storage technologies.

Joerg Lew‘s speeches are some of the high points at VMworld. His knowledge of orchestration and automation is always welcome at any VMware event. He will be giving a "getting started" seminar that will include the key concepts in understanding vRO.

One of the keynote speakers will be Paul Strong, VMware Chief Technology Officer, and many people are looking forward to the years of knowledge that he has to offer. The other keynote speaker will be one of the most anticipated guests, Andreas Mogensen. He is a hometown hero in that he was the first Danish-born astronaut to go to the International Space Station.

Other Vendors Will be Represented, Too

In addition to these guest speakers, there will be presentations from companies like Zerto. They are a leading name in disaster recovery when it comes to the virtualized infrastructure. They will have representatives speaking about the difference between backup, disaster recovery, and business continuity.

There will be a lot of opportunities to see the products being showcased by partners of VMware. In addition, UserCon is a great place to meet and discuss your own business and ideas with people from other Nordic countries. The Nordic VMware UserCon will be a great way to get a feel of all of the things that VMware has to offer. To register for the event please visit https://www.vmug.com/p/cm/ld/fid=10935.

Use Case - Tamper-resistant Clinical Trials


Blockchain PoCs were unsuccessful due to complexity and lack of developers.

Still the goal of data immutability as well as client verification is a crucial. Furthermore, the system needs to be easy to use and operate (allowing backup, maintenance windows aso.).


immudb is running in different datacenters across the globe. All clinical trial information is stored in immudb either as transactions or the pdf documents as a whole.

Having that single source of truth with versioned, timestamped, and cryptographically verifiable records, enables a whole new way of transparency and trust.

Use Case - Finance


Store the source data, the decision and the rule base for financial support from governments timestamped, verifiable.

A very important functionality is the ability to compare the historic decision (based on the past rulebase) with the rulebase at a different date. Fully cryptographic verifiable Time Travel queries are required to be able to achieve that comparison.


While the source data, rulebase and the documented decision are stored in verifiable Blobs in immudb, the transaction is stored using the relational layer of immudb.

That allows the use of immudb’s time travel capabilities to retrieve verified historic data and recalculate with the most recent rulebase.

Use Case - eCommerce and NFT marketplace


No matter if it’s an eCommerce platform or NFT marketplace, the goals are similar:

  • High amount of transactions (potentially millions a second)
  • Ability to read and write multiple records within one transaction
  • prevent overwrite or updates on transactions
  • comply with regulations (PCI, GDPR, …)


immudb is typically scaled out using Hyperscaler (i. e. AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure) distributed across the Globe. Auditors are also distributed to track the verification proof over time. Additionally, the shop or marketplace applications store immudb cryptographic state information. That high level of integrity and tamper-evidence while maintaining a very high transaction speed is key for companies to chose immudb.

Use Case - IoT Sensor Data


IoT sensor data received by devices collecting environment data needs to be stored locally in a cryptographically verifiable manner until the data is transferred to a central datacenter. The data integrity needs to be verifiable at any given point in time and while in transit.


immudb runs embedded on the IoT device itself and is consistently audited by external probes. The data transfer to audit is minimal and works even with minimum bandwidth and unreliable connections.

Whenever the IoT devices are connected to a high bandwidth, the data transfer happens to a data center (large immudb deployment) and the source and destination date integrity is fully verified.

Use Case - DevOps Evidence


CI/CD and application build logs need to be stored auditable and tamper-evident.
A very high Performance is required as the system should not slow down any build process.
Scalability is key as billions of artifacts are expected within the next years.
Next to a possibility of integrity validation, data needs to be retrievable by pipeline job id or digital asset checksum.


As part of the CI/CD audit functionality, data is stored within immudb using the Key/Value functionality. Key is either the CI/CD job id (i. e. Jenkins or GitLab) or the checksum of the resulting build or container image.
