2013 VMware vExpert!

Looks like 2013 is going to be another stellar vYear!  I found out last week that I was awarded the vExpert designation again this year.  The official announcement and list can be found here:

VMware has a good thing going with this program - it gives them the opportunity to recognize those that are active in the virtualization community and provides benefits to the receivers from both VMware and it's partners.  Here's a partial list of the benefits I've received thus far:

  • Eval licenses from VMware
  • Polo shirt from Tintri (now x2)
  • Free year subscription from Train Signal
  • $100 off VMworld registration
  • Free license for V-locity Performance Accelerator from Condusiv
  • Access to various VMware beta programs like vSphere and Project NEE

On a related note, I also completed registration for VMworld 2013 last week.  A decade of VMworld!  Keep watching for my VMworld recap in early September.
