This page is just to give you some information about what to expect from the blog and some information about myself.

Blog information

My intention is to post the architectural and technical challenges and thoughts i’m facing  during my day to day work in this blog. This means some blog post will be more like notes instead of long blog but at least i learned something new or just refreshed my memory which is not too bad.

I believe there are many talented and skillful bloggers in the virtualization community doing a good job keeping track of new influences so i will most likely stay away from from that and not blog about these things.

I, Magnus Andersson, am a Sr Staff Solution Architect and Consulting Architect at Nutanix and targeting cloud, automation and disaster recovery applications/ solutions.

My main focus the past 2 years before joining Nutanix was creating design and implement VMware vRealize Automation formerly known as (vCloud Automation Center), VMware vCloud Director and VMware Horizon View solutions but also e.g. vSphere implementation and upgrading, performance troubleshooting. I’m working, among other things, with the above described technologies in my daily job.

As a VMware trainer (VCI) i held classes in several countries including Australia,Belgium, Canada, Denmark, England, India, Italy, Malaysia, Norway, Singapore, South Korea, US and Sweden.

In June 2015 i become the 5:th Nutanix Platform Expert (NPX) in the world and the first in Europe.

I started my advanced certification path back in October 2010 when i become the 56:th VMware VCDX (VCDX3) and also the first in the Nordic countries. I have upgraded the VCDX certification to also include VCDX4 and VCDX5.  In September 2013 i added the second available VCDX certification, VCDX-Cloud, to my resume meaning i become the second person worldwide holding both the VCDX-DCV and VCDX-CMA (previously called VCDX-Cloud) certifications.

The most recent (2015-06-09) certification award i earned was the Nutanix Platform Expert.

For the first time i was awarded the VMware vExpert title 2013 and it has been renewed every year since then.

My blog has been included in the Top vBlog competition for two years now and i was placed #17 2015 and #18 2014 and actually #1 in the category “Favorite new blog” back in 2014. This is awesome and i’m really honored over these results. My goal was to reach top 100.
