About Derek

This is a tech blog by Derek Seaman which focuses on a variety of tech topics. Most recently I been focusing on the Smart Home and personal computing. Over more than a decade I been blogging on a variety of enterprise IT topics such as cyber security, VMware virtualization, Nutanix, enterprise storage, Windows Server, datacenter hardware, SAN storage, and a lot more. I’ve cranked out over 800 blog posts since 2009 when I started this blog. 

Who am I?

After a long career focusing on Enterprise IT infrastructure and hypervisors, I am now focusing my professional career on Cyber Security. Over the years I have obtained a number of certifications including Nutanix Platform Expert (NPX) #014, VMware Certified Design Expert – Datacenter (VCDX-DCV) #125. In the VMware vSphere 5 and 6 era I was voted a Top 25 Virtualization Blogger for a number of years by the community. I’m also a VMware vExpert and hold an active CISSP. I love traveling and have been to over 60 countries.  You can always check out my LinkedIn profile for my current employer in case you are curious about any possible biases. 

Independence: Unless a post explicitly states it was in some way sponsored or review software/hardware was provided, then you can safely assume there was NO exchange of good or services for the content in that post. Any company that I write about never has any editorial control or pre-approval of my posts. My thoughts are solely my own, both positive and negative. I’m not shy from calling out issues when I see them. In fact, over the years many posts I’ve written were how to fix or work around broken software, or to compensate for vendor documentation that was very lackluster with my how-to guides.
