Join the Next Generation SDDC Leaders

I was invited by the Tech Field Day team to join the Storage Field Day 5 delegates. This will be my 5th Storage Field Day and I’m very honored to be on this awesome delegate list, once again, Thanks Stephen, Tom and Claire. In future posts I’ll dive in to the sponsors presenting at Storage Field Day 5, and what I’m interested in to hear from them. And if you ask me you’re too. If so, don’t hesitate and join us for this great event.

VEEAM your world!

Veeam is a longtime sponsor of my blog, and they’re growing like a weed ;-)
Veeam is about to get its 100,000th customer and they lanched an interactive contest for a chance to win a trip around the world and other prizes (Google Glass,iPad and Microsoft Surface).
If you would like to participate, you need to register and predict the location of Veeam’s 100,000th customer on the interactive map. The closer you are to the right spot, the better chance you have to win the trip around the world and other prizes.

Nutanix EMEA HQ and Web-scale IT

Last week my friends from Nutanix opened their brand new EMEA Headquarters in Hoofddorp (Amsterdam). It’s awesome to see such a company like Nutanix opening their HQ in the Netherlands.

Just to spread a little light on the Nutanix way of life.

VMware PEX, PernixData FVP 1.5 and Atlantis ILIO USX

There’s always a lot of gossip around VMware Partner EXchange (PEX), and it’s not any different during this years edition. It all started about 2 weeks ago when Joe Kovar at CRN posted: VMware Limits Some Storage Vendors Presence At VMware PEX. In the post Joe told us that VMware asked Nutanix and Veeam were asked to stay away from PEX, which VMware hosts this week in San Francisco. My good friend Hans de Leenheer did another post on this: VMware uses its right to bear arms! where the replies are of most interest to me… I’m not choosing sites, but Nutanix and Veeam not being present on this Partner Event is very strange, but as always there are most likely two sites of the story…

Join the Tech Field Day family

Today is the start of Wireless Field Day 6 which in turn means a new year of Tech Field Day awesomeness, and I wanted to share my experience with the Tech Field Day family, and invite you to join. Last year I wrote an article called:” You can be a SFD4 delegate”. But there’s more. As some of you don’t exactly would like to be a Storage Field Day delegate (I could never understand why ;-P), I would like to point out you can be a tech field day delegate, and Stephen, Tom and Claire are always on the look for new Tech Field Day delegates. Tech Field Day started in 2009 with TFD1 and in a five year time frame in grew to multiple Field Days. Let’s have a look:
