      Hello All,


      January 26th is our first meeting of the year.  Brad Wagner from Quest Software will be our speaker and sponsor for the evening and his bio follows.


      "Brad Wagner is Director of Product Strategy for Quest Software.  In this role, Brad regularly engages with customers to understand needs and pain points related to virtualization management, and ensures that this feedback is incorporated in Quest’s products.  


      Brad came to Quest Software from Georgia-Pacific where his role was in the area of enterprise architecture and strategy for Enterprise IT Services. His responsibilities included the definition of strategy, the planning and execution of funding, vendor management, evaluation of new technologies, and project management of large IT infrastructure initiatives.


      Brad brings over 17 years of relevant industry experience in architecting and managing enterprise-scale business critical applications and infrastructure. Brad has been a pioneer in architecting the advanced virtualization solution for a Fortune 100 organization in enterprise architecture and implementation roles. As an early adopter of VMware's virtualization solutions, Brad has played a key role in helping many other area companies understand and adopt virtualization, and has been able to provide valued input into several vendors' hardware and software products."


      Brad is looking forward to having a very interactive discussion with the Orlando group about customer challenges and pain points that you face in your virtualization endevours.  So please bring your questions and issues you are facing. 


      Food and drink will be served and we will get started around 6PM.   Unfortuantely the location has changed from the invite sent out from VMware.   They changed my meeting room on me the same day the invite was sent out.   An updated formal invitation will be sent out.  The new location is as follows:
