vExpert 2016: Thank You!

Back in 2012, I joined Xtravirt. One of my colleagues was Darren Woollard (who works at Nutanix now). He knew that I had been blogging for a few years so while putting his vExpert application in, he asked me if I had ever applied for it.

Today, I became a vExpert

It was announced today and if you are a virtualization enthusiast, it might be old news to you by now.  It's an honour to be part of such a knowledgeable community of people, which I consider to be the best in the computing industry. I have been blogging for a few years now but never [...]
