I’m Pete Koehler, currently a Sr. Technical Marketing Manager at VMware. After being in IT for as long as I have, you pick up a thing or two along the way. This is my little way of sharing what I’ve observed and learned.
I started this blog in 2009 on a whim. No grand strategy or mission statement. I simply focused on what I was interested in, and wanted to share my experiences. I found it therapeutic. Strangely enough, many others found what I wrote unique, and interesting. It has completely changed the trajectory of my career in IT.
My career in IT initially started with the graciousness of an overworked graybeard Administrator who gave me the gift of opportunity. What followed was a lot of mentoring, self study, certification exams, and hard work. A lot of it. I’ve had the opportunity to Administer all aspects of the data center, with particular focus on virtualized infrastructures, shared storage, networking, and the other glue that makes it all work. I also have helped others design and deploy their environments that promote resiliency, scalability, and operational simplicity. I particularly enjoy rediscovering the often overlooked aspects of infrastructures, and share my experiences with a few long winded posts when I have time. Formerly a Technical Marketing Engineer at PernixData, I’m happy to call VMware my home.
