I realised on the weekend that I had not talked about one of the most exciting things that has happened to me in the last few months (besides a fantastic new role!), being awarded the vExpert 2013 status.
Over the last few years I have been lucky enough to be working on a number of projects, all Enterprise class deployments based on VMware. A brief list is included below:
- Large Server platform based on vSphere 4.1 with HP c7000 Blade chassis and EMC VMax
- Large VDI deployment on vBlock 700MX with Citrix Xendesktop and vSphere 5.0
- Large Server platform based on vBlock 700MX with vSphere 5.0 and VPLEX.
- Global Deployment of vSphere platforms across 36 countries based on vSphere 5.0 and NetApp.
Please see the following link to all the fantastic people who have been added or returned to the list this year:
As I have outlined this is a fantastic program. I only hope that I can make VMworld this year, but at this stage it is looking unlikely!
