VMblog is owned and operated by David Marshall, a 16 time VMware vExpert from 2009 to 2024, and author of "VMware ESX Essentials in the Virtual Datacenter" Published by CRC Press, ISBN: 1420070274, and "Advanced Server Virtualization: VMware and Microsoft Platforms in the Virtual Datacenter" Published by Auerbach Publishing. ISBN: 0849339316; and the Technical Editor of two extremely popular books from the For Dummies Series: "Virtualization for Dummies" Published by Wiley. ISBN: 978-0-470-14831-0 and "VMware VI3 For Dummies" Published by Wiley. ISBN: 978-0-470-27793-5. is dedicated to spreading the word about modern Data Center technologies like Virtualization, Cloud Computing, Containers, Hyperconvergence, IoT, Software-Defined "X", etc.  The goal is to keep the masses informed and educated about all the latest trends, technologies, and news that relates to these amazing technologies. 

The Web site was launched as a project to keep track of what was going on within the IT industry - specifically, within the virtualization space.  Virtualization is a subject that I have been interested in and involved with since around 1999.  My interest in the subject started when I began using VMware Workstation and Connectix virtualization products at home.  This interest helped spawn a successful career that allowed me to leverage my expertise in the virtualization space.  Early on, I was able to work closely with VMware software engineers as they designed VMware ESX Server.  Using ESX Server while in its Alpha stage, the endless possibilities of what server virtualization could do and accomplish quickly became obvious.  And so embarked a career that allowed me to help implement a number of virtualization solutions for numerous Fortune 500 and Fortune 1000 companies.

The hope was and is that this site can help the IT community serve as a resource of information for everything concerning modern data center technologies.  The site hopes to accomplish this task by posting information related to topics such as the following:

  • Platform technologies like VMware, Citrix, Microsoft, Parallels, Red Hat, Oracle and more
  • Application Virtualization, Streaming, Kubernetes, and Containers
  • Public and Private Cloud Computing (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, etc.)
  • Desktop Virtualization (VDI), Brokers, DaaS, WaaS, AVD and Desktop Delivery
  • Edge Computing
  • Network Virtualization and SDN
  • Storage Virtualization, Software Defined Storage, and Hyperconverged Technology
  • Security
  • Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
  • Automation, Management Applications, Tools and Utilities
  • Modern Data Center News, Whitepapers, Videos, Webinars, Conferences and Events, Books, and other Resources
  • And more...

As new companies and technologies appear, we hope to bring you more information about them on this site.

I invite your comments and feedback.
