vBlog 2017 – Top Virtualisation & Storage Blogs

I’ll keep this post about vBlog 2017 very brief as you can see my thoughts on the subject of soliciting votes for awards in my post from 2015!

It’s that time of year again when Eric Siebert of vSphere Land and vLaunchpad runs his annual Top 100 vBlog nominations!

There are a huge number of bloggers around the world producing great documentation and insight, as well as podcasters helping you pass your daily commute in a constructive and educational fashion! Eric’s awards give people the opportunity to recognise those who really stand out from the crowd, as well as more up and coming bloggers / podcasts.

vBlog 2017 sounds great! How do I vote?

I would encourage you to head over to Eric’s site and cast your votes; it only takes take a few seconds of your time to show some appreciation for the time and effort put in by those ladies and gentlemen who worked tirelessly throughout the year to help make all of our jobs that little bit easier.

Of course, if you do feel like throwing a vote for the Open TechCast podcast and / or Tekhead.it, then it would of course be much appreciated! 😀

Storage Field Day 13 (SFD13) – Preview

Tech Field Day 12 (TFD12)

For those people who haven’t heard of Tech Field Day, it’s an awesome set of events run by the inimitable Stephen Foskett. The event enables tech vendors and real engineers / architects / bloggers (aka delegates) to sit down and have a conversation about their latest products, along with technology and industry trends.

Ever been reading up on a vendor’s website about their technology and had some questions they didn’t answer? One of the roles of the TFD delegates is to ask the questions which help viewers to understand the technology. If you tune in live, you can also post questions via Twitter and the delegates, who will happily ask them on your behalf!

As a delegate it’s an awesome experience as you get to spend several days visiting some of the biggest and newest companies in the industry, nerding out with like-minded individuals, and learning as much from the other delegates as you do from the vendors!

So with this in mind, I am very pleased to say that I will be joining the TFD crew for the fourth time in Denver, for Storage Field Day 13, from the 14th-16th of June!

As you can see from the list of vendors, there are some really interesting sessions coming up! Having previously met with Primary Data, it will be great to catch up with them and find out about how they have improved in the past couple of years. We also use quite a selection of DellEMC products at my organisation, so it will be really good to meet them and get the latest updates.

Lastly, I am particularly keen to find out what future trends and movements will be from the perspective of SNIA, the Storage Network Industry Association, about some of the most cutting edge developments in the industry.

SFD13 Sounds great! How do I tune in?

If for any reason you can’t make it live, have no fear! All of the videos are posted on YouTube and Vimeo within a day or so of the event.
