cormac-chinaMy name is Cormac Hogan and I am currently a Director and Chief Technologist in the Office of the CTO in the Storage and Availability Business Unit (SABU) at VMware. I joined VMware back in April 2005, and have previously held roles in VMware’s Engineering, Technical Marketing and Technical Support organizations. I have written a number of storage related white papers and have given numerous presentations on storage best practices and vSphere storage features. I am also the co-author of the “Essential Virtual SAN” and “vSAN 6.7 Deep Dive” books. This is my personal blog related to (mostly) storage in virtualization environments, although recently I have been looking more and more at the Cloud Native space.
