Like many vExperts, waiting for the announcement for 2020 has been a little nerve-wrecking. 2019 was a very busy year for me, got made redundant from VMware, welcomed my 2nd child into this world and then joined CloudHealth by VMware in an EMEA-wide role, and then pretty much kissed goodbye to my free time as … Continue reading VMware vExpert Community – 2020

Yesterday’s article tried to set the scene and discuss why I think CloudHealth is such a great product, today’s article will be about 3 features that caught my eye that I’ve found to be pretty cool. Policies In the adapted words of Beyonce.... “Who Run the Cloud... Policies!!” Policies should be used to run the … Continue reading My Big Bets for 2019 – CloudHealth – Part 2
Originally I wanted to write a single article about CloudHealth, but over time I ended up adding so much content to the article that it was more an essay than a blog! I’ve decided to split it into two and cut out a lot of feature reviews - so todays’ article is more about scene-setting … Continue reading My Big Bets for 2019 – CloudHealth – Part 1
