About Derek

This is a personal blog by Derek Seaman, a Top 25 Virtualization Blogger, which focuses on enterprise IT technologies such as Nutanix, VMware Virtualization, datacenter hardware, and Microsoft enterprise software like Windows Server. Occasionally I may blog about other technologies that I use in my professional life, such as VDI or enterprise storage. In short if I use it at work then it’s game to be blogged and tweeted about. Feedback has been very positive from the community, which is great motivation to keep on blogging and improving my content. This is my personal blog, and is in no way sponsored, endorsed or reflect any opinions of my employer.

Who am I?

I am Nutanix Platform Expert (NPX) #014, VMware Certified Design Expert – Datacenter (VCDX-DCV) #125, VMware vExpert (2012-2018), voted a Top 25 Virtualization blogger for more than 5 years, and accomplished IT Systems Architect with extensive experience on a global scale with VMware virtualization and Microsoft enterprise products. I hold numerous certifications including VMware VCP-DCV 3/4/5, VCAP5-DCD, VCAP5-DCA, and VCDX5-DCV. In various customer-facing roles I’ve worked with Fortune 500 companies and large Government (DoD) agencies, delivering solid and secure solutions. I believe in designing systems that are flexible, scalable, and maintainable regardless of their size.

I’ve also been published in a few Microsoft security hardening guides as a reviewer and contributor. Those include Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. You can find me on Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn.
