Top Blog websites Survey 2015

top vblog 2015

Vote for you favorite blog website!

Every year vSphere-land has a contest. You can vote for the top 50 VMware- and virtualization-related blogs of 2015. The blogs you can vote on are listed on vLaunchPad. Since about 2 or 3 years my website is listed there as well and so the idea is to vote on my website, so I end up in that top 50. This top 50 gets some extra attention, because these sites end highlighted and probably will attract some extra hits and that’s why we do this, right? –> extra hits!

My blog is listed on vLaunchPad so my site can be voted on! Again. In total about 400 blogs are in this list, so choose wisely, since all sites are probably worth reading.

How do I vote?

Visit the voting site and vote on me! But voting on 9 others is fair too, I guess. Let’s make sure www.50mu.net get in that precious top 50!

EMC World 2013 – day 3

EMC World 2013, day 3


Sergey and RobWednesday started with breakfast in the great food room in the basement. I don’t know any other name for this enormous place. And for the second time this week I ran into Sergey on my way there. I think he was following me around, I’m not sure. Hmmmm.

Engineers unplugged

The whole day Amy Lewis (@CommsNinja) was running around preparing for her “engineers unplugged” video shoots and white board sessions in the EMC Elect lounge. Read more »

Fibre Channel Routing: EMC Ask the Expert on ECN

Fibre Channel Routing

From Monday April the 15th to May 1st 2013 EMC is hosting yet another “Ask the Expert” discussion on ECN. This time it’s about Fibre Channel Routing.

What is it, what’s it used for and how do you know if you want it?

Take a look at the discussion and join me and my friends Allen Ward and Mr Dynamox on ECN!

And although we close the topic on May 1st, we’ll wrap up LIVE from EMC World in Las Vegas in the EMC Elect corner! So if you’re there from May 6 to May 9, make sure to look out for us. As far as I know the Elect corner will be next to the Blogger’s area, close to the Pavillion.

EMC World 2013, the final countdown has started!

The countdown has started

Just 3 weeks and a few days to go and it’s EMC World again! Time to meet my old and new friends and finally getting some rays. the one thing I’ve been missing the last few weeks it’s the sun and I guess most Europeans agree with me. Don’t know what it’s like in other parts of the world, but I certainly need more heat than what we’re having now.

Discussing the challenges of Long Distance Links

On ECN (EMC Community Network) together with Jon Klaus, a colleague of mine, I started a new “Ask the Expert” discussion about long distance links and the challenges you might be facing there. I would like to invite you to join the discussion there:


If you’d like to discuss anything here, you’re welcome to do so on ECN, but if you also like Twitter there’s a treat for you as we will be having a LIVE “TweetChat” on Monday November the 26th from 19:00-21:00 CET (1PM-3PM EST, 10AM-12AM PST). The URL you can use to filter out the discussion will be http://tweetchat.com/room/EMCATE.
An earlier anouncements about the TweetChat on Thursday the 22nd proved to be badly chosen because of Thanksgiving, a national holiday in the USA. We didn’t see this coming. Our appologies. I will be online on Thursday the 22nd anyway to welcome anyone who didn’t see the new anouncement.

Let’s join the discussion!
