It’s been a busy, busy week – and VMworld 2010 hasn’t even started!
I’ve been doing a couple of podcast this week. The first over on the APAC VMware Communities Round-table. In the podcast I basically air my views on VMware Site Recovery Manager and DR generally. It’s a bit of sneaky preview of my session at VMworld next week. So if you can’t VMworld this year, toddle over to their webpage where you can listen again – heck you might even be inspired to subscribe to their iTunes Podcast.
In the same day, I did a podcast with Colin Steele at SearchServerVirtualization.com. Also on the show was VMware Communities Big Cheese – John Troyer… I was talking with Colin about VMware’s forthcoming cloud announcements, and desktops too – whereas John was talking about the social aspect of the VMworld event.
Then in the evening I was “on” the VMware Communities Round-table. Well, I say “on”, it wasn’t really my show – but VMware’s CTO Steve Herod. I managed to get a question in about how I feel the SMB market is being ignored in the cloud debate, but how I feel that the SMB market might have the MOST to gain from a cloud infrastructure.
It was this point that John Troyer asked if I was stalking him. As we kept on bumping into each at the same virtual social media events! I guess that’s testament to how much my life has change since hitching my wagon to TechTarget in Feb, I’m slowly evolving (or is that degenerating!?!?!) into a full-time freelance writer, blogger, podcaster, video, social media type guy. It’s an interesting learning curve, I can tell you!
