Bio from scottlowe.org:

I’ve been in the Information Technology field for more than 16 years, starting out with desktop support. Along the way, I worked as an instructor, a technical trainer and Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT), systems administrator, IT manager, systems engineer, consultant, and Chief Technology Officer for a small start-up. Most recently, I was the technical lead for the virtualization practice at ePlus Technology, a national VAR/reseller. Currently, I work for EMC as a VMware-Cisco Solutions Principal, where I specialize in the intersection and integration of VMware, Cisco, and EMC solutions, products, and technologies.

In addition, I am a contributor to SearchVMware.com, a VMware-focused website with technical articles, how-to’s, tips, and news. I have had a few articles published on SearchServerVirtualization.com and I am a former columnist for Virtualization Review magazine.

I currently have two published books on the market. The first, Mastering VMware vSphere 4, was published by Wiley/Sybex around VMworld 2009; the second, VMware vSphere 4 Administration Instant Reference, was published by Wiley/Sybex in December 2009. Both books are available from Amazon.com and other major booksellers.

Kansas City VMware User Group – Next Meeting June 11th

Our next meeting will be June 11th from 11-1. We don’t have any details on a location yet, but we will be lining up vendors to speak about topics related to NFS on VMware, and possibly some VMware View items.

Speaking of NFS, as mentioned at the last meeting, we are looking for people who are using NFS and VMware in production. It would be great if you could provide a brief overview of how you did it, with what vendor, and what performance you have experienced out of it. I guess it would also be helpful to know why you decided to go this route, as opposed to the FC route, like normal people do…..

Hope to see you all in June!!!
