Ken Hui and I started with VCE roughly at the same time in mid-to-late 2010.  We were both able to participate in the EMC vSpecialist on-boarding as part of Team05, and he quickly emerged as one of the leaders of the VCE team

Finally.  Finally.  I’ve been waiting a while to put this post together.

Most of you have read about the dustup between Tesla founder Elon Musk and the NYT reporter who wrote a critical review of the car’s performance.  What was […]

Over the last few weeks I’ve been thinking a lot about communities, and the different kinds of communities that are needed in a corporate environment today.  Working through this in my head helped me put some recent discussions and announcements in context, so I’m hoping by sharing we can start a discussion on how to […]

Chuck Hollis has a way of taking a good story and putting an interesting perspective, on it, and his latest post, a look into the long and fruitful partnership between EMC and Cisco is no different.  When put into context and on a timeline, it’s informative to see how the companies have partnered for the […]

Chad Sakac and Chuck Hollis have done a fantastic job of introducing the world to the VMAX 40K in all it’s peerless splendor, but of course there’s one more question being asked:  when will we get to see this behemoth, along […]

One of the core value propositions of the Vblock is the reduction of risk and increase in speed-to-market for our customers as they build out their own private cloud or consuming it from one of our service provider partners. This reduction of risk comes as part of a process that is incorrectly labeled as a […]

Having being involved in a number of EMC product releases over the last couple years, this one may have garnered the most wildly speculative pre-launch chatter from the market.  While some of it was reasonably accurate, some of it was

VCE is kicking off the year with a blow-out event planned for Cisco Live in London.  Having arrived on Sunday morning, the booth-building and setup was in full swing through Monday afternoon.

If you haven’t been to one of the major industry shows lately, VCE has really done a […]

I had almost the exact same conversation with three customers over the last few weeks, and one of them ended with the EMC vSpecialist who had invited me to the call telling the customer “Keep an eye on his blog, I’m sure he’ll have more up there soon!” With pressure like that, who needs deadlines?

Over in the Twitter-verse there was a question asked by @aneel:

It got me thinking, especially since Cisco (@aneeI’s employer) tends to leverage them to a significant degree and VCE (partially owned by Cisco) has traditionally been the opposite side of that coin.  Personally, I think both are valid ways to go to market, […]

The first day of VMware is always a tone-setter for me.  Sunday is a way to ease in, get your bearings, try and sync up your body clock and get ready, but Monday really determines what kind of conference it’s going to be.  If today is any indication, we […]

With my employer having EMC as a parent company, it’s not surprising that data, and all of the ways it impacts the strategy, operations and execution of businesses of every size, is a topic that comes up often.  The interesting part is seeing for myself how much data matters on a day-to-day basis in lots […]

The VMware keynote at EMC World 2011 focused on defining the move into a "post-PC" world. It's been a fairly common refrain for VMware for the last couple years, but in this particular keynote I got the impression that we seem to be preparing for a world where the hypervisor isn't front

I apologize that this post is so long in coming. Thanks to everyone who asked if I had more content coming, I’ll try and get everything dumped over the next couple days. I appreciate everyone’s patience!
