TechTarget Acquires Mike Laverick's RTFM Virtualization Website

TechTarget announced that it has completed an acquisition of Mike Laverick's UK-based virtualization Website, RTFM-ed.  This is the second acquisition of a blogger that I am aware of from this company.  The first was the acquisition of Brian Madden from Citrix and desktop virtualization fame.

If you've been around the virtualization blogosphere long enough, you probably already know about Mike Laverick and his Website.  Mike has been providing the VMware community with articles and stories and has used his training expertise to author free whitepapers, guides, videos and more to help educate and train the masses on various VMware technologies for years now.  And he has also authored several books on this stuff as well in his "spare time."  If you've ever met Mike at a VMworld or virtualization trade show, you'd remember him.  He is quite the character, and I've been lucky enough to meet up with him a few times in the "real world," and lucky to call him friend. 

In addition to acquiring RTFM-ed, TechTarget said they will also partner with Mike Laverick to deliver additional content for the site as well as other TechTarget virtualization-related properties such as,, and

"We are excited to add to the TechTarget lineup. RTFM is a top destination for virtualization professionals looking for up-to-date technical information. Adding RTFM enhances our lead in the virtualization space through the in-depth, virtualization-specific coverage that we are able to offer to information technology professionals," said Marc Laplante, Publisher of TechTarget’s Data Center and Virtualization Media.

Congrats to Mike!  He definitely earned it.  We look forward to future guides and information from Mike as only he can provide with his colorful commentary.
