I am an IT professional with 18 years of experience in the technology industry.  I am currently employed as a Cloud Management Specialist at VMware.  Prior to joining VMware, I have previously held management and engineering positions at two great VARs (Varrow and RoundTower Techologies) and some large vendors (EMC and NetApp.)  My roles entailed assisting customers with designing the best solution for the application need.  Before entering the vendor world, I spent 7 years as a Windows, Virtualization and Storage Administrator at Limited Brands (Victoria’s Secret, Bath and Body Works, etc).  My first virtualization project was a 120 server consolidation onto 8 hosts using VMware in 2001.  One that was wildly successful and drove my passion for these technologies.

I have thought about blogging for a long time.  There were many ideas and directions that I had considered for topics.  What I thought was most appropriate was a collection of answers to the most common questions I hear from customers and colleagues.  My goal is to create a repository of ideas and tips from compiling all of the questions I receive from customers every day.

If there’s a question you would like to see a post on, send it over.  I’ll do my best to answer as timely as possible.

Thanks and Enjoy,
