Networking for
VMware
Administrators
It’s a pretty good book
100% of royalties are being donated
to the Alzheimer’s Association
It all started
out of frustration
I’m also forgetful
Takeaway #1
Having a brain vault is awesome
Negative comments can be soul crushingly horrible
Positive comments are worth more than Schrute Bucks
Inherited a large vSphere
environment
Inherited a large vSphere
environment
And it used NFS storage … everywhere
In a word: challenging
91 Comments
Takeaway #2
Exploring new territory is both fascinating and terrifying
Collaboration on a blog post is humbling
Driving towards fear has resulted in the greatest learning
Oh, also …
… I had an interesting conversation with a VCDX defense candidate who
referred to my NFS content
Takeaway #3
Putting yourself out there is a critical first step to greater things
Thoughts, not word counts, are what matter
Independence is a rare and valuable property
