The VMware Forum, a free one-day event organized by VMware and hosted in several cities around the globe, is a good opportunity for us to show that PRTG can not only monitor your physical but also your virtualized environment.

Especially in virtualized environments network monitoring is essential. Your applications may be distributed over many different servers, networks, and locations. Though, if your network connection fails, hundreds of applications might be unavailable - a major impact on your business operations!

Wembley Stadium, London (May 2nd)

Nearly 1,000 delegates attended the VMware Forum in London and learned about the future of virtualization and cloud computing through a series of key notes and sessions. As monitoring is definitely a crucial part of that we had a busy time showcasing our most recent PRTG version 13.2 with the new interface and the virtual monitoring support. We received a lot of positive feedback and enjoyed the conversations we had during the day. Once again the PRTG bag was one of the highlights in the goodies department, we even managed to take a picture in the Stadium!

Thanks again to all of you who joined us that day!


Zurich, Switzerland (May 15th)

With only 400 attendees the VMware Forum in Zurich was an informal and relaxed opportunity to meet IT people from Zurich and surroundings. We once again had very promising conversations with customers and prospects alike and enjoyed ourselves as you can see on the pictures below.

Thanks to all who attended this event!


Frankfurt, Germany (May 28th)

After the shows in London and Zurich the next stop on our VMWare Tour was Frankfurt, Germany. What a nice welcome to the city - the hotel offered to rent a Mini Cabrio without any cost so we of course used the car to get to the exhibition, even if it is just a short ride and driving during Frankfurt's rush hours is not recommended at all! Our Paessler booth looked amazing and the Frankfurt attendees were impressed by the look and feel of PRTG, too. The feedback on the new interface once again showed that we are on the right track with all the development work we do day by day. With the VMware, Xen, Hyper-V and all other sensors PRTG is perfect for monitoring all aspects of today's networks.

Thanks to all Frankfurt attendees!


Paris, France (June 6th)

We had the privilege to present our software in an absolutely beautiful location for the last tour stop, the Carrousel du Louvre. During this unforgettable time, we had the opportunity to meet current users of PRTG and to discuss the future use of our solution with interested sysadmins. All the great features meet their demands perfectly. Our attendees were amazed that a network monitoring solution can be that simple to install and configure!

We were delighted to see that PRTG is already appreciated and well known in the French market: many of our visitors have already seen PRTG in place at colleagues' networks or have read about it in their favourite publications.

Thank you all for your visit and for all the nice feedback!
