I co-founded the Greensboro, NC VMUG and assisted as a co-president for about 3 years.
I have served as a consultant for a VAR/Partner here in the Carolinas and founded their VDI Practice. We took an agnostic approach and performed VDI Assessments, Plan and Designs, and Installations of both VMware View and Citrix XenDesktop. Other technologies worked with here include Imprivata, AppSense, Unidesk, and LiquidwareLabs Stratusphere.
I am now a Sr. Systems Engineer for Tintri who is manufacturing the next evolution in storage purpose built for the cloud. Tintri’s VM-aware storage is perfect for virtualized envionrments and is extremely impressive for VDI implementations. Come see what VM-aware means at www.tintri.com
