As I work through my travel schedule for the rest of the year, I’m excited and a little overwhelmed about the number of fun events that are coming up.  Here’s a quick rundown of where I’ll be for the rest of the year, at least the ones that are current scheduled.  If I don’t […]

Look, I know what you are here for.  You want me to use my powers of industry awareness, combine them with my proximity to VMware, EMC and Cisco and tell you exactly what the acquisition of Whiptail means, not just for VCE but for the industry as a whole, right?

Well, good luck.  I counted […]

I’m in a strange mood.  I’m struggling to find the motivation I need for the final stretch before VMworld, and a combination of a brutal travel schedule, way too much stuff on my plate and just a general sense of being personally unsettled has me feeling out of sorts.

Personally and professionally, the news […]

Martin Glassborow posted a thought provoking piece on his blog a couple weeks back talking about how the intelligence native to infrastructure seems to be working it’s way up from the individual components.  Specifically he references the

Once again, it’s time to break down the vExpert group and take a look at how this collection of people is organized.  I was surprised at how well received this blog post was last year, and to have people asking when I would put it together this year!  Some notes, before we get started:

You probably didn’t notice, but VCE reached a significant milestone this week.  I don’t think it got nearly as much fanfare as it should have, but the VCE Developer Portal that was announced as part of the VCE Vision Intelligent Operations

First off, I apologize for the relative scarcity of blog posts lately.  I hadn’t really noticed that I had slowed down, but I was (forcefully) reminded by two people that I respect very much that I need to stop making excuses and get back to writing more.

Since the

Man, where to start with this one.  Let’s do a personal level-set first.  I freely admit, I’ve never been a software guy.  I can script, I can hack, I can handle web design with simplistic data-driven back-ends.  I can write SQL queries like a champ.  I’ve been working in and around VMware for half a […]

I had never heard of “Rachel’s Challenge” before.  Maybe I should have.  Started by the parents of the first student killed in the Columbine shootings, it’s mission is to reach out to the students who are the victims of bullying and help create safer learning environments.  The organization […]

Why I Love My Job

On February 22, 2013 By

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 for that week.  We […]

I’ve added a couple more blog links, as well as links to information about the technology included in the launch.  I also included all of the YouTube videos and the Launch Kickoff Video from Joe Tucci, John Chambers and Pat Gelsinger.   I covered the analysis of the Gartner market share report

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 […]

You may have seen a few tweets last week, formally confirming that VCE has the ability to resell the Cisco Intelligent Automation for Cloud (IAC) solution directly.

I’ve been asked by a couple people why there wasn’t more of a formal announcement with regards to this, since there […]

As an unabashed lover of list-making, New Year’s resolutions are something that I love making and yet often lack the discipline to follow through on.  This year, I’m working on defining tasks at the point where technology intersects with the people in my life, finding ways to interact in ways that are more secure, safer […]

Wow.  It seems like just yesterday that everyone was getting set to start the 2012 sales kickoff roadshow, culminating in a wonderful week of pinball and pints in London at Cisco Live EU.  Now, I look around and see that we are quickly closing in on 2013 and I’m dismayed to realize how fast the […]

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 […]
