Some of you may have noticed that this week I posted my first article on the VMware Virtual Blocks blog. In the future you will see me posting there more frequently. Of course I will also stay posting here, but some more VSAN evangelism related stories will probably go to Virtual Blocks blog first. So what has changed?
Chuck Hollis just published a blog that he has decided to pursue a new career opportunity outside of VMware. Chuck has been the lead evangelist for the Storage & Availability BU over the last couple of years, and if you ask me has been instrumental putting Virtual SAN on the map. I want to wish Chuck all the best. Thank for everything you have done for the company and Virtual SAN in particular.
When a door closes a window opens is what they say, window of opportunity that is in this situation. I’m honoured and humbled that I’ve been asked to take on the responsibility as lead evangelist for the Storage and Availability BU effective immediately on top of my current responsibilities as a Chief Technologist in the CTO Office.
I am looking forward to spend even more time talking publicly about all of our efforts in the storage and availability space, expect to hear from me soon!
