Welcome to The SLOG! Its a technical Blog written by me, Simon Long. The main focus of this blog is based around Virtualization technologies, but it will include other technology related news/information and anything else I find interesting and feel the need to share with you. I also use this Blog as both a place to store useful information that I think that will come in handy to me at some point in the future, and also a place to help aid my learning. I find a great way to learn about something is to research about it and then write it up in my own words.
A little about me: I'm Simon Long (VCDX #105), 31 from Norwich, England. I am currently working as a Senior Consultant at VMware . I have been working in IT for 14 years, In which I now focus predominantly on Virtualization technologies, and more specifically VMware's End User Computing products. I'm am the co-owner of http://www.vbeers.org which is a free website that allows people interested in virtualization organize meetup's in their local area. The vBeers concept has become very popular with the virtualization community with vBeers events being organized in every continent.
I'm a regular Twitter user and you will often find me on the VMTN Community answering customer questions. IT aside, I play many sports, enjoy keeping fit and I'm often quite partial to the odd drink or two with friends..But never on a school night!!
