Another Job Transition, here’s to the future!

I have been super busy over the last few months which has kept me away from blogging and social media. For those who aren’t aware, I recently moved from an Escalation Engineer in support to a Systems Engineer for NSX. I couldn’t be more excited for this career move, and I couldn’t be more fortunate to be offered this opportunity. I truly believe SDN and NSX is the future of networking, and the last remaining piece of the SDDC stack.

As everyone knows, my posts have already transitioned from vSphere and vCenter, to NSX, and I hope to continue that trend. My posts will continue to focus on NSX and software defined networking as it continues to grow. I know I will be very busy working to grow the number of customers who are using NSX, but I will definitely continue my blogging efforts on NSX implementation, troubleshooting, design, and much more.

For our customers who have adopted NSX, or are thinking about NSX, please let me know if there are any blog posts I can put up to help you with the transition. I believe it’s important to contribute to the VMware community as much as I can through knowledge transfer and want to continue that moving forward, especially in my new role.

Thank you to everyone who follows my blog and has watched me move forward on my career path. I often get a lot of compliments from our customers as well as VMware employees on the information I share. It’s always very rewarding to be at an event and have someone come up to me and compliment me on my blog posts. Thanks again for everyone who has supported this blog! 🙂

Here’s to 2016!

    Congrats Sean. I’ve been reading your blog for quite some time. I’m more into vSphere and vCenter but I’m looking forward to extend my view with your articles about NSX. 🙂

    HI Sean, my congratulation, you really deserve it!
    I hope that you will write a BASIC step by step tutorial for those that are not familiar with NSX. While you can find tons of simple and clear posts explaining any kind of concept about the vmware world, I have not been able to find an easy NSX guide for beginners.

      Hi Marco,

      Thank you! Can you elaborate more on a basic step by step tutorial? Which feature sets are you specifically looking for?

      I have created a VCIX-NV study guide at the top which goes through a lot of the functionality at a high level. There are a lot of different features of NSX.

    I would like to see a blog post on vRO/NSX integration. How about a HOWTO on deploying a DLR (Edge optional) from vRO?
