Hello VMware!

Howdy everyone, you’re probably wondering what the title is all about, well, it’s all about myself focusing back on the technical side of things, and this post is to formally announce that starting from January 1st, 2013 I will no longer be associated with Juku, Juku Consulting and Cinetica as I’m joining VMware full time to be part of their Global Center of Excellence (CoE) team as Senior Consultant.

I will be joining an insanely great team, with what I believe is the highest concentration of VCDX mindshare of any company in the whole world, my role, from my understanding, will include spending lots of lab time with all the VMware technologies in the Cloud Infrastructure Management space (and probably more), testing them out and creating internal IP to enable the field, as well as reporting feedback back to the engineering team to improve the products and, from what I heard, being a Subject Matter Expert during major VMware events is also part of the role I will assume.

As you can imagine, I’m pretty excited 🙂 and my new position will surely expose me to more tech blog material than ever before, and this prompted for a major blog rehaul.

When I opened up p2v.it a few years ago it was my third try at blogging, I used to be pretty consistent at first but then another blogging effort, Juku (jointly conducted with my then-partner in crime Enrico), took precedence over the poor p2v.it that was left agonizing in a corner, I stopped updating it until recent times when I posted my super-rant on IT certifications.

After I decided to move with VMware I started to work on it a little bit, redid the graphics, the theme and basically got rid of everything unnecessary, sticking to the “less is more” mantra.

I always wanted to be more technical and hands-on but those kind of posts weren’t cut for Juku, Now I want to talk about everything I happen to enjoy in the IT space, and music too, yes, music, I want to bring back a thing I used to do when I ran my first blog on storage (called Rock around the Block, still love that name), bring up lesser-known records I love in every other post with a really really short review.

And that’s it! I will try to keep the blog updated on my progresses within VMware but I’m sure that the first months will be hectic 🙂 in the meantime, I’ll leave you with the first record review: Face to Face’s Big Choice.

Face to Face has been one of the best kept secrets of the SoCal ’90s alt-rock scene: awesome musicians, sing-a-long choruses and catchy melodies. Disconnected, A-Ok and Descendents’ Bikeage cover are Big Choice’s highlights.

  • CONGRATS! Welcome to the dark side 🙂

  • Break a leg!

    It was a real pleasure for me to work with one of the best technicians that I have ever met. I also admit that I’m going to really miss you but I’m very happy for your new role at VMware: it’s well deserved and all the VMware community will have another chance to appreciate your value.

    I wish you all the best !
