Achievement Unlocked: vExpert NSX

591812795EM002_The_2015_Mis

About a year and a half ago, I really became interested in VMware NSX. What made NSX so interesting to me was that it touched two aspects of technology that I really have a passion for…virtualization and networking. I remember when I was first introduced to NSX. I thought to myself….”its a neat concept….but I can’t see having my network in software”. But the more I began to explore use cases for NSX, and realizing that 95% of the data center that I worked in was virtualized, it really made more sense. This lead me to dive even deeper into learning NSX. At the time, I didn’t have a homelab so I made good use of the VMware HOLs to play with NSX to further my learning. Using the VMware HOLs, I was able to get some good time at the “steering wheel” working with NSX and it helped me in my studies for my VCP6-NV. I was able to achieve that goal last year at VMworld US. Working more with NSX has made me want to share my thoughts, “how-tos”, and opinions about it and ultimately give back to the vCommunity. That “giving back” has in turn helped me to deepen my knowledge on NSX and other VMware products. That is why I am pleasantly surprised and honored to be awarded with vExpert NSX status for 2017.

What I appreciate most about the vExpert community is that its not about how much you know or being a complete guru on a particular subject. It’s about sharing your experiences and knowledge as well learning along the way. I’d encourage anyone with a passion for virtualization to get involved in the vCommunity and don’t keep all of that knowledge and experiences to yourself, but rather, share it with all! Congrats to all of the other vExperts in their various tracks!
