Blog Anniversary: Two Year Blog Update

TheVirtualBoi Turns Two!

It’s hard to believe this blog is now two years old. It seems like just yesterday I was trying to determine the best blogging platform to utilize. Time has flown by, and during that time I’ve written approximately 40 blog post, including this one.  I’ve learned so much during that time, and I can honestly say this blog has challenged me to continue to learn and grow. My biggest accomplishment was obtaining my AWS Solutions Architect Associate Certification.

When I review the statistics, I see that very few people read it. We life in a age of instant tidbits of information, and people aren’t going to take the time to read this unless they are trying to resolve an issue. If anything it helps hold me accountable, although I hope people can learn and find inspiration from this blog. I can’t wait to see what the future holds. I plan to continue to focus on VMware, Data Protection, and AWS.

Monday Motivation: Beast Mode

Monday’s: Its often considered the worst day of the week. People HATE Monday and love Friday. Why is that? In order to find out, I think you have to dive deep into human nature.

In order to get where you want to get in life, you have to work for it. Nothing beats hard work. Often times you will have to outwork others (competition) for it. There won’t be anyone to give you all the answers or tell you how to get there. You will have to forge your own path. You have to invest in yourself, and it’s up to you to take responsibility for own life/career, no one else can do it for you. Just because you work hard doesn’t mean you get a gold star. There are just as many people you don’t know who are working just as hard, if not harder! It’s very disappointing because I’ve know several individuals who have had such potential, but let complacency set in. This results in them staying exactly where they are.

VMworld Goodies from Letsv4Real!

VMworld 2017 has come and gone! While I haven’t been to attend VMworld yet, I was able to keep up with VMware’s announcements via Twitter and blogs. Thankfully the event is heavily covered, and I was able to follow along just as if I was there! Here’s one of the sessions (VMworld 2017 SER1143BU A Deep Dive into vSphere 6.5 Core Storage Features and Functionality) that caught my eye, since it had to do with Core Storage Features!

 

This was a very informative session with regards to core storage functionality, and thankfully VMware posted these sessions for those who couldn’t make it.  Continue reading “VMworld Goodies from Letsv4Real!”
