VMware NSX Session at Atlanta VMUG UserCon Today! 

For anyone in and around Atlanta, make sure you make it to GWCC convention center for the VMUG UserCon 2015!

Atlanta has one of the busiest VMUG and I will be presenting on getting started with VMware NSX!

You can also meet up with Mariano Maluf – the president of VMUG and other big wigs as well.

Also get to meet Kelley O’Hara – from the national football team and am hoping to take a picture with her. She’s awesome!

See you there! 


I wanted to do a quick write up to let you all know that I switched roles to join the Cloud Solutions Architects team at Rackspace.

In this new role I will be helping our Sales and the SE organization in architecting deep vmware and enterprise architectures –> read lot of white boarding and testing!

I will also be a liaison to help our Rackspace VMware product team, with whom I spent three years, to get more intelligible insight on customer requirements and trends to help in building new products which is exciting.

With that said I have been quite busy traveling to customer sites and also to VMUG user conferences. I recently presented at the Washington DC VMUG and the response was great.

If you are local or can make it to one of these VMUG user conferences, I strongly encourage you to do so.

I will soon get back to contributing and blogging once I settle down in my new role.


I never got a chance to write about my experience at the Boston VMUG conference that happened early October this year. I blame it on my default state of my mind – “procrastination!” 🙂

I had to now talk about how great it was after having got mentioned in Techtarget over a presentation that I and one of our product manager’s presented together. It certainly felt good to see the “press” – if I am allowed to call them that – taking note of how important DR was to a business and how important having it in a planned fashion really mattered.

Here is the link in case you want to read it.

I also got to meet a plethora of vendors and also some VMware gurus like Alastair, Jonathan, Matt and had a lunch with Scott Davis who was the former CTO of VMware’s End user computing business (IIRC).

All in all it was a great event, well organized, well taken care off and well attended!
