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)?

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. This will most probably the 502nd blog post talking about the programme so I’ll cut the waffle but certainly won’t skip over the important fact that we’re hugely proud of our achievement and appreciate the efforts that John, Cory and the...

44CON, 2013 – My notes & thoughts

44CON, 2013 – My notes & thoughts

Infosec and me Attending the 44CON this year lead me to take a significant step out of my comfort zone in that I feel safe in virtualisation conferences, will boldly walk into a room and where appropriate introduce myself to someone new. But this event was something so off skew to my usual format I had to rely on inquisitive nature to lead me rather than confidence in a subject matter. Please note, I’ve not written that I’m a...
