Running Minecraft in a Container with Persistent Storage

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 18:00:27 +0000

  TL: DR – –   As you may recall back in my OSCON Blog post, Brian Verkley (@BVerkley) and I had the pleasure of sitting through a really interesting talk from Julia Ferraioli with Google. She discussed running Java type apps like Minecraft in containers. Java Apps are probably one of the most […]

RedisConf 2016

Thu, 12 May 2016 18:00:04 +0000

  As you may recall, I moved into a new focus in January of this year.  It’s REALLY outside of my comfort zone from a focus perspective.  The Cloud Native Apps team I belong to is really not focused on “storage” or even a particular OS/Hypervisor like I’ve done in the past.  It’s geared towards […]

EMC World 2016 12 Factor App FTW

Wed, 11 May 2016 19:15:27 +0000

    Last week Brian Verkley (@bverkley) and I had the extreme pleasure of presenting at the 2016 EMC World in Las Vegas.  We were part of “Code and Modern Operations” Track.  Our discussion was around 12 Factor App development as it relates to Cloud Native Apps.  We took the audience made up mostly of […]

Wed, 11 May 2016 18:05:59 +0000

Let the journey begin–where I started first

Tue, 26 Jan 2016 15:30:13 +0000

    In my last blog post (New Year with a new focus)  I mentioned that I’m on a new journey – one that requires me to roll up my sleeves and  get comfortable being uncomfortable in this new world of Cloud Native Apps.  For those of you playing along at home, I thought I […]

New Year with a new focus

Thu, 21 Jan 2016 16:14:17 +0000

  Over 5 years ago I left a storage startup to move to EMC to be a vSpecialist.  Probably one of the most Pivotal (pun intended) moves I’ve ever made.  The numerous opportunities afforded to me here at EMC has been crazy.  I went from being a vSpecialist individual contributor, to a vSpecialist Manager to […]

My thoughts on EMC and Dell

Thu, 15 Oct 2015 17:00:50 +0000

    If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it hundreds of times. If you don’t like change, you are going to like irrelevance even less and that is no truer yesterday than it is today and tomorrow. The amount of change IT is going through is incredible. If you aren’t always trying to figure […]

So what does this all mean

Tue, 13 Oct 2015 00:33:22 +0000

  This is my ElReg style title   You like ?!?! HAHA   is this blog still on?   What an amazing time to be in the technology sector and information infrastructure as a whole.  So many things going on, so many opportunities and so much information to consume.  It can sometimes […]

Austin VMUG Preso–Disruption

Wed, 08 Apr 2015 14:30:44 +0000

  I had the absolute pleasure of delivering the lunch keynote at the April 7th VMware UserGroup Conference in Austin.  I always enjoy presenting and love it even more when I can be vendor neutral and talk about things that are passionate to me.  This presentation is focused on disruption, which interestingly enough is something […]
