Last post of the year and New Theme… Happy New Year!

For me this has been a year of many changes, challenges and opportunities. Early in the year decided I accepted an offer to help to shape the future of End User Computing by working for VMware as an architect in the Office of the CTO.

I get to talk to customers, partners and spend time in the lab sharpening and brushing my IT skills. I also get to spend cycles working on cool and exciting prototypes. VMware let me to be part of interesting and challenging projects and I really enjoy it.

I presented at VMworld US and EMEA and I also had a chance to speak at VMUGs and conferences. I also was able to dedicate some time to go after certifications like VCA5-DT and VCP5-DT.

I tried to keep my blogging at steady level and managed to push out over 110 articles – some of them of a great deal IMO. Every day I find more and more that sharing is only expanding my horizons, and I really enjoy doing it.


Hard to pick but IMO here are my Top 5 articles for the year:

Why use <Insert Vendor Here> storage for VDI?

Understanding CBRC (Content Based Read Cache)

How to Access Windows 8 CP via PCoIP with VMware View

What’s New in VMware View 5.1 (Beyond Marketing)

DaaS Identity Management, Federation & Multi-Tenancy

…could not choose only 5…three more.

Space-Efficient Sparse Virtual Disks and VMware View

Multiple View Composer Servers against single vCenter

View Storage Accelerator and View Storage Tiering [Unsupported]


I hope you enjoyed reading my articles as much as I did writing them for you. As we close the year I wish us all a relaxing and invigorating passage. I will be back in 2013 with renovated energy for another round of EUC, VDI, Virtualization etc. Thank you all!

Ha! Almost forgot…. I hope you enjoyed the new blog theme!
