Ask the Expert, Visit the World

on 2012-05-14

Some months ago, I watched with (I must admit) a tinge of envy as my good friend Matthew Brender ran an “Ask the Expert” session the EMC Community Forums about VNXe Front-End Networks with VMware. A week or two after his own session had wrapped up, he approached me about getting involved with Ask the Expert and I jumped at the chance. After being briefed by Mark Browne, Matt, and Sean Thulin (and a quick consultation with my boss who was incredibly enthusiastic about the idea), we set up a session about Avamar on the EMC Community Forums. Since my Avamar specialty is distinctly server-side, I decided to make the topic of the session Avamar Server Management Best Practices.

Probably the last thing I anticipated when I agreed to run the session was an invitation to EMC World so you can imagine how surprised and flattered I was when I received an invitation to join the other Ask the Expert contributors in Las Vegas for live Ask the Expert events. If you will be at EMC World, please stop by the Ask the Expert booth and say hello! I plan to be in the booth daily for a couple of hours right after breakfast. Sadly, I will not be bringing my dragon hat (it’s been de-fanged) but you should be able to pick me out.

I will also be reporting in periodically from EMC World itself with anything interesting I pick up during the events and keynotes. I’ll be focusing my time outside Ask the Expert on Backup and Recovery (I do work for Avamar Engineering, after all). I plan to update daily while I’m at the conference so if you’re interested in BRS topics from an engineering perspective, please stay tuned!
