Helping virtualize the datacenter…

And a new era begins

Six months ago I decided to make career and life change and move to Fort Worth for a new job.  It was a fantastic opportunity at a small company.  I never envisioned being at the company for longer than two years, but I figured the opportunities for career growth were better.  Surprisingly, I also did not imagine my time at the company to be so short lived.  It is actually quite unfortunate, since I worked with a lot of a great of people.

There always comes a time where you have to ask yourself if you can accept and deal with the changes, or is it better to find another opportunity?

I had been fighting this for the past couple of months, and today I made the decision, for both personal and professional reasons, to move on.  I had made similar decisions before, but always because I was moving to a new employer for a better opportunity.  This time is different.  I am just moving on.  And surprisingly, I am very relaxed and happy with the decision.

So what is next for me?

The last two projects I really enjoyed were designing and architecting the server refresh at my previous company, and then the implementation of the 100% virtualized data center at my now former company.  Both revolved around VMware vSphere, Cisco Nexus 5000 switches, and EMC storage.  I would like to pursue a position around data center design and architecture using the same or similar technologies.  Along a similar path, I also have aspirations for attaining CCIE and VCDX certifications.

And that’s a wrap.  I am off to enjoy the rest of my day.
