2010 Refresh

March 11, 2010

2009 got busy with this-and-that, so this blog became stale.  It’s a new year, and though we have not yet finalized our departmental or individual goals, there’s a lot going on this year at work.

In 2010, at work, plans include:

  • Server refresh (hopefully with a lot of virtualization)
    • New Citrix environment / upgrade
    • Re-vamp intranet/website test server configuration
    • Symantec upgrade
  • SharePoint 2007 or 2010 deployment
  • Altiris Management Suite deployment / configuration
  • Disaster recovery project
  • Information security project
  • User training project
  • SOX compliance process review

Those are the main things, composed of many many little things.

I hope to have more to post soon.


VMWare Day 0

August 30, 2009

San Francisco is a beautiful, foggy 59 degrees, and the Moscone Center / South of Market neighborhood seems to be a perfect place to hold a conference.


Checked in at the hotel, registered for the conference, and picked up materials from the Moscone Center.  The schwag so far includes an awesome backpack, a pen, and two t-shirts (the green one you get if you are registered as a VMUG member).

Heading out later for the VMWorld Extravanganza at the Thirsty Bear.

Meanwhile, posting photos of interesting on Flickr.

VMWorld 2009

June 15, 2009


Just got approval and registered for VM World 2009, which is being held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California.   To keep informed, I am now following VM World on Twitter , Linkedin, and Facebook.

This year at VMworld 2009, discover how virtualization is revolutionizing the next generation of computing—providing efficiency and flexibility at a time when both are critical to the future of IT.

As the only event completely dedicated to virtualization, VMworld, brought to you by VMware, is your opportunity to:

  • Learn how VMware is transforming the datacenter and desktop into a flexible, reliable cloud infrastructure
  • Discover the best way to introduce more efficiency, control and choice to your organization
  • Connect with peers and virtualization thought leaders

I’ll be sure to blog about my discoveries there.
