Things are heating up! VMworld Europe is drawing ever closer and today we are announcing the lucky vForum attendee who’s earned himself a free ticket.
All those who attended a UK vForum event and were able to answer the competition question correctly were entered into a random draw to win a free ticket to VMworld Europe.
Out of everyone who entered, we picked the following winner – Sean Killen, UNIX Systems Manager in the Faculty of Biological Sciences at the University of Leeds. Congratulations Sean!

We caught up with Sean to hear about his experiences at vForum, and in particular what he’s looking forward to most at VMworld Europe.
- Are you using any of VMware’s solutions? Which ones and how have they made a difference?
I’ve been using VMware products for about seven years now and at the moment I’m using a number of VMware solutions – vSphere, vCenter Site Recovery Manager, vSphere Replication and vSphere Data Protection. Based on my current experience of VMware’s solutions, we’re also investigating how we can use vCloud Air.
- Why did you enter this competition?
Having heard and read various reports about VMworld I’ve been looking to go for several years. Unfortunately, I’ve never been able to arrange the funding to get there, so I’ve been entering competitions to try and win a place. Obviously, finding out I’ve now won a ticket is excellent news!
- What are you looking forward to most at VMworld Europe?
As it’s my first time at VMworld, there’s a lot of things I’m looking forward to. But if I had to narrow it down to three things it would be attending presentations and the keynotes, networking and catching up with some contacts. I’ve also heard the Hands On Labs are a great way to get experience with the latest VMware products, so I’ll be trying to fit that into my schedule as well.
For all those who weren’t quite as lucky as Sean, you can also try your hand at our Fast Lane Racer game if you fancy getting hold of a ticket. If you don’t think your driving skills are quite up to scratch, remember there is still time to register for VMworld Europe 2014.
