I have wealth of hands-on IT experience gained over the past 30 years in a variety of technologies, with the past 20 years focusing on virtualization and storage. I have worked at VMware in Staff and Senior roles as a Course Developer, Trainer, Solutions Engineer, and in the Competitive Marketing group.

I have worked as a Senior Validation Engineer with The Taneja Group, where I headed the Validation Service Lab and was instrumental in starting up its vSphere Virtual Volumes practice. I can be reached on Twitter @vDoppler
