A couple of years ago a request landed on my desk to begin work on an Enterprise Hybrid Cloud solution. It meant switching attention from the work we had been doing on Service Provider solutions utilising VMware vCD, and turning our attention to an Enterprise Cloud solution which would be based on what at the time was VMware vCloud Automation Center (vCAC – which has since been vRealized to vRA). The solution would also leverage EMC ViPR and VMware NSX for software defined storage and networking respectively.
This solution is now officially titled the Enterprise Hybrid Cloud. A LOT has happened since the outset but the learning curve has been fantastic and continues today.
After debating for a while about whether or not to start my own blog (where to put it, internally/externally, time commits, content, etc, etc), and after much coercion from colleagues (looking at you @DavidCRing) I’ve decided to give it a go.
Hopefully the content that I post here will be useful to others. My initial intent is to post content which is complimentary to the various documents (Whitepapers, Solution Guides, Build Guides, Reference Architectures, Tech Notes) that I have been producing for the past number of years for my employer. This content is all available publicly anyway but this blog may provide the platform to expand on some of the topics and technologies.
If you like or find any particular post, please share and be social. If not then I welcome constructive feedback.
Btw, ‘Scamallach’ is Gaelic/Irish for Cloudy (pronounced ‘Scom-ull-uck’). It’s the best I could come up with!
