I am a very big fan of VMware. I cannot help it, I have helped military units, hospitals, schools, and a variety of business be better off in IT due to VMware. Truly it was a big deal when I introduced people to virtualization and later vMotion. In those days I was Professional Services so I built things with VMware to solve customer issues and it was wonderful. I remember those days and really like VMware. Then I was lucky enough to join VMware and things got even better. Even today, a serious percentage of my employer’s customers are VMware customers so I still get to help people out with VMware. I love talking with customers about what can be done with VMware, and when I get to solve a problem, or introduce people to a new feature that is very cool.
And the vExpert program is what allows me to do that. It provides a community, and licenses, and those two things help keep my skills sharp, and that allows me to empower VMware customers.
This means a great deal to me, so thank you VMware!
BTW, here is the announcement of the new vExperts.
