VMware Product Walkthrough Videos

I recently stumbled across an excellent page from VMware that I had never seen before.  I figure others would enjoy this page as much as I do.  On the page it has a collection of videos provided for many of their offerings to get you up to speed!  It’s a nice little nugget of information that I hope others will enjoy.




Vsphere 6 Announced!

This has been a crazy year for me both personally and professionally.  I was just awarded the vExpert 2015 award and I am greatly honored.  I am hoping to get more posts out this year so I can keep it running.

First post of the year will obviously cover some of this new announcement.  There are many changes and many of the experts in the industry have done a lot of work so I will just be compiling the list of links here.  As I get more acquainted with the technology and involved I will begin making more posts about it.
