Hi everyone, welcome to the second newsletter for 2015. It has been a very busy week as everyone returns from their well deserved vacation and starts getting back into work. If you have just returned to work welcome back.

 

I have been continuing on my learning path with VMware Airwatch. My goal over the next few months is to learn as much as possible about this great technology as mobile becomes more pervasive.

 

Here are some links to help you with more information:

Hi everyone and welcome to the first VMware TAM Source newsletter of 2015 featuring our new format and our official new name. Last year we delivered 49 newsletters to the community and to date over the past 6 years are on track to hit 300 newsletters which we think is a great achievement. Our goal is to try and provide our readers with the most up to date news relating to VMware technology from both a technical and business aspect. Each week we scour the web for the best news stories from not only VMware itself but also the many vExpert and other VMware bloggers that are providing such a valuable service to the VMware community.

 

We look forward to bringing you the best of VMware in 2015 and beyond and thank you for being a loyal VMware supporter and newsletter reader.

 

Onwards to 2015!

VMware Newsletter 6.49

image010.png FROM THE EDITORS VIRTUAL DESK

Hi everyone, well it’s the final newsletter of 2014. I can’t believe how quickly the year has gone. It seems like just yesterday I was packing my bags and heading for San Francisco to start my new life. It has been an amazing year for me personally. I am so proud to be part of an organization such as VMware that is dedicated to creating the best software products it possibly can.

 

I wanted to share with you something even more important that VMware has done for the past 2 years now. As an employee of VMware we are all given access to a fairly generous amount of time that we are able to use for the benefit of charitable work. This is something that many organizations do and I think it is fantastic as it really allows us to give back to our communities and in the process we learn so much doing this. VMware however goes one step further and gives each of us a donation on Global Giving (www.globalgiving.org) that we are free to use as we see fit on any of the worthwhile charities that are available. This is a very simple gesture but for me it is so important as it reminds me every year as I go through the list of charities how fortunate we are to have what we do, and how rewarding giving rather than receiving can be.

 

I hope that you have enjoyed another year of VMware newsletters. I have certainly enjoyed doing them and going into our 7th year is going to be even better.

 

I wish all of you and your friends and family a safe, healthy and happy holidays and I look forward to speaking to all of you again in 2015.

 

Virtually Yours

Hi everyone, it’s the final month of 2014 and the countdown to the festivities I am sure have begun wherever you are located. Here in San Francisco the city is starting to get ready for the season with beautiful lights in the city and activities such as outdoor Ice Skating. There was no newsletter last week due to the Thanksgiving holiday  here but we are back as usual this week.

 

I have been quite busy with a number of VMware solutions and Proof Of Concepts. This past week I have been focusing on Log Insight (http://www.vmware.com/products/vrealize-log-insight) a solution that I am very fond of and pairs very nicely with vRealize Operations (http://www.vmware.com/products/vrealize-operations). I find deploying, setting up and using Log Insight extremely easy and right away I am already seeing results. If you haven’t had a chance to look at these solutions you should check them out.

 

Onwards to this weeks newsletter.

 

Virtually Yours

From the editors virtual desk

Hi everyone, as you will notice we are now testing a new format and template for the newsletter. It has been quite some time since we have made any changes to the newsletter and from time to time we like to try and freshen things up. Please feel free to send me any comments on the new format, what works and what you would think should be changed, I am always open to your suggestions to make this newsletter the best possible.

 

Next week is Thanksgiving and there will be no newsletter so please bear that in mind as well as any other potential VMware services that you might require over the long weekend. It is best to plan ahead so speak to your VMware TAM or account rep if you have any potential issues.

 

Happy Thanksgiving.

 

Look forward to speaking to you all again in 2 weeks time.

 

Virtually Yours
