All of my professional life (a little over 6 years now) I have worked in the vendor space. Starting at EMC straight out of college, and then most recently at the startup SimpliVity. Next week, this all changes as I make a shift to the channel. Starting Monday, I will officially begin the next phase in my career as an Advanced Virtualization Consultant at LogicsOne. I’ll be assisting clients with planning VMware automation, deployments, and datacenter transformations and be that trusted advisor they can rely on. For those of you not familiar with LogicsOne, they are a leader in consulting, integration, and management of virtual and cloud based environments. In 2012, LogicsOne was acquired by GreenPages, a large value added reseller operating up and down the east coast. They continue to maintain the LogicsOne brand and values and operate it under their professional services division.
I’m excited for this move. Vendor life is all that I’ve know and now I get to take what I’ve learned about storage, virtualization, and hyperconvergence and apply it to something new. I’m happy to be trying a new side of the industry and get exposure to new technologies and their integration with each other. I still plan to be a big part of the VMware and virtualization community, so expect to see me at events and meetups.
