Featured IT Blogger of the Week

This week’s IT Knowledge Exchange blogger of the week is Eric Siebert. Eric wears many hats — he is a guest blogger for the SearchServerVirtualization and Virtualization Pro blogs, now on IT Knowledge Exchange. He is an author on VMware topics, releasing his first book, “VMware VI3 Implementation and Administration” this summer. He also has built an expansive online resource on VMware-related topics,

One incredibly useful feature of the site: Eric maintains a comprehensive list of virtualization bloggers, resources, calendars, tools and even Twitter users on what he calls the “VMware Launchpad“.

Any virtualization pros would be doing themselves a disservice by not visiting this page, as it condenses the most useful links onto one easy-to-navigate page. Cheers to Eric for staying on top of the virtualization game, in many different arenas.
