An afternoon with PernixData’s CTO

An afternoon with PernixData’s CTO

Before I begin brain dumping my thoughts from yesterday I’d like to take a moment not only to thank Satyam Vaghani (PernixData CTO & Co-Founder) but also to Jane. Much like yourselves I receive invites to meetings, ‘free’ events, conferences, WebEx demos, etc… most days of the week but there seems little sincerity with these. So what’s the point? There’s too many other things to be doing and quite frankly...

Welcome vExperts – fancy a freebie (or 2)?

Welcome vExperts – fancy a freebie (or 2)?

Hello First of all, I would like to congratulate and welcome the new recruits to the vExpert programme and, for those who’ve been fortunate enough to be on boarded for another year.

A cordoned off section in the middle of the hall offer rollerskating to brave, experienced and foolhardy. Health and safety rules applied and as the onlookers cheered at tumbles it was clear to see that helmets and wristbands were a...

VMworld 2013 Europe – Wednesday

VMworld 2013 Europe – Wednesday

General Session – Carl Eschenbach In the 10 minutes prior to the session starting the Platinum sponsors each had their own promotional video trailer presented. It somewhat startled me into a momentary panic as the music blasted out without warning and had me thinking the session had started but no, just a NetApp, HP, EMC, Dell and a Cisco trailer-thon. Disclaimer announcement along the lines of, “Things that may be true most...
