My name is Matt Mancini also largely known in the VMware vitalization community as vmexplorer. I’ve operated this blog since 2010 as a way to compile relevant technical and virtualization tidbits. My blog content has always been straight to the point and no-nonsense. From my point of view if you are reading my blog then you are trying to solve a problem and the last thing you want is a lengthy blog filled with useless content. I hope this is a point of view you can appreciate and if my content is a bit short feel very free to send me a comment or question — I’m always glad to help.
Background — For those that care :) I have enjoyed 25+ years in IT and I have many industry certifications dating back to the early 1990’s. My virtualization journey started in 2004 with ESX 2.0 and I’ve been hooked ever since. I rebooted the Phoenix VMUG 2008 and through my role on the VMUG board, I helped to build it into a world-class users group. For these efforts and my continued VMUG involvement, I have been awarded VMware vExpert every year since 2009. In 2011 I joined VMware as a Senior Technical Account Manager (TAM) and shortly after I was promoted to Staff TAM. Working for VMware has been a great experience and my role as a TAM is a very good fit for my core strengths – Customer and Technical Services.
To sum it up — I hope you find this blog site useful, but as with everything you find on the Internet you should use discretion before applying my posts to your environment. Keep in mind these posts are just my opinion and not the opinion of my employer or others…
Enjoy! Matt Mancini
