I wish you all a happy new year 2017.
Some of you might have noticed, there was a countdown on my website. So what has happened … I have decided that it was time to move on to new challenges. So I quit my job at Vodafone after nearly 15 years and joined VMware at the 1st of April 2016 as Senior Technical Support Engineer.
Currently I’m really busy by doing a lot of trainings, exam’s and meeting a lot of interesting people mostly in Cork.

That’s the reason why I do not post a lot of new stuff on my site. Keep you posted. :-)
I got the possibility to take over a new role in my company. My old role was Application Manager responsible for cloud like services. Now I become Cloud Solution Manager responsible for the Orchestration Team and a Cloud Management Workstream. I’m completely focused on our internal cloud solution called Vodafone Plex.
It’s a very interesting challenge for me as I’m coming from the operations area and now moving into the management.
Will post more about cloud management and Openstack.
It’s now a while that I have posted something new on my page :-( but currently I’m extremely busy at work. Setting up multiple new environments based on new / different hardware and in multiple data centre area’s. This is quite interesting because all environments will work together even if they don’t have direct connections between the vCenters/ESXi servers. So hopefully everything will work as I have it in my mind :-D
What else is going on … hmm yeah I’m preparing myself for my first VCP exam. So I plan to do the VCP5 exam within the next weeks or months depending on my spare time. As preparation I bought the VMware Press VCP5 certification guide. For someone without deeper VMware knowledge this is a really helpful book. For myself with multiple years of VMware experiences in small production environment with nearly 50 ESXi servers and around 1400 virtual machines / appliances it is more a way to verify my knowledge.
So fingers crossed that I will have enough spare time to proceed with my preparation and to get the VCP5 exam passed quite soon.
I wish all a merry Christmas and a happy New Year. Enjoy the days with your family and friends.
Wish you all the best!
There will be no post the next days as I’m currently move to a new flat. After this I’m going to re-setup my Homelab and maybe extend it by 1 additional HP ML115 G5 :-)
I was sick at the weekend … currently I regenerate from a flu and a Tinitus which I got last week :-( hopefully I can start with the cloud setup mid of this week.
