As per previous posts, I want to do more vCatchups and open them out to a wider community! In an effort to do this I’m no longer limiting myself to live one-to-one catchups (althought I’ll still do these) by adding more ways to vCatchup via Hangouts, Skype sessions etc! If you would you like to come on the vCatchup and talk about technology, let me know?
Enjoy the conversation and please provide some feedback!
You can subscribe to my YouTube channel: http://youtube.com/user/blograck
You can also subscribe to the iTunes audio podcast and listen to all the vCatchups as they become available: https://itunes.apple.com/au/podcast/vcatchup/id580478667
Or if you’re not iTunes inclined here’s the RSS Feed: http://feeds.feedburner.com/vCatchup

Here’s a list of the questions we covered: –
Can you start-off by telling us a bit about what your current role as Chief Architect for a Telco and what projects you are currently working on?
Your background is very network focused, how did you find moving into virtualisation, specifically (Compute & Storage)
VCDX#133, since achieving this certification you’ve been focusing on community payback which is great, can you share with us your experiences of this journey, where you are today and where you what to go?
Let’s talk about FLASH, I think this is THE biggest disruptor in Storage today, everyone knows storage is the bottleneck of the data centre, but how do you think mass adoption will change the way we architect data centres of the future?
Tell us about your home lab, how do you ‘get your hands on the tools’?
I noticed that you’ve worked in various industries including Finance, Academia, Vendor, Telecommunications, what do you see as being the biggest differences between these industries and what have you learnt from this diverse exposure to working environments?
