I am incredibly excited to announce that I will be joining VMware! Even more thrilled that I will be a member of the Cloud Platform Business Unit, in the R&D organization, as a Technical Marketing Architect.
Very grateful for the opportunity to be part of a team full of all-stars! My main focus will be my longtime love; VMware vSphere. And everything that comes with it. There is a lot going on with vSphere; version 6.7 U1 is released, we are moving towards the next-gen performance enhancements like PMEM and vRDMA, let alone new (hardware based) security improvements and the recently announced ESXi on ARM support. The list goes on and on…
It all starts with VMware vSphere!!
I thought a lot about joining VMware and kept an eye out for the right opportunity. Even though I was having a good time working as a freelance IT architect with fun projects, the time was right for a new challenge. It all just worked out. Perfect timing.
A big shout-out to all the people who pushed for me, you know who you are! A special thank-you goes out to Emad (Younis) and my fellow Dutchies Frank (Denneman) and Duncan (Epping). Thanks for recommending me. Can’t wait to get started at the end of this November!
See you at VMworld in Barcelona next week!
