In this interview, I got to snag a few moments with GS at an after-party we were both at. I found the quietest location I could and asked my standard questions. GS just took a position at VMware (end of last year I believe?) and was in the process of immersing himself in his new role. He said his own version of what everyone says when I interview them: if there’s anything I should have done sooner, it’s get involved in the virtualization community. Connect with everybody. Here’s a quick overview, but please give it watch – what he shares is valuable!
GS is excited about: It’s a secret! NDA stuff VMware is working on. VSAN is cool though.
GS would like to learn more about: SRM, vSphere Replication, VDP(A)
His career explosion was: Getting involved on Twitter two years ago. Go figure!
Who has most influenced GS: Ken Werneburg (@vmKen)
GS’s advice to himself five years ago: Believe in yourself – you can do more than you think you can.
