Updates from VTUG Boston

First blog post from iPhone so apologize if strange-looking..

Meeting news:

Keynote is Oded Haner, CTO of Hotlink on multi-hypervisor evolution

Oded flew in from Silicon Valley where he is involved with their local VMUG

VTUG is expanding to Silicon Valley (Oded to head up) and Indianapolis mimicking the multi-source hypervisor evolution

Lot of concerns voiced about challenges of multi-hypervisor by IT tech staff but regardless, multi-hypervisor is here and growing
