I recently took a position as a Senior Systems Engineer at Nimble Storage. Dell was a great organization but the role I was in was starting to change into a position I wasn’t interested in doing. I wish all the friends I made at Dell in the 3 years I was there the best of luck.
If you’d like to learn more about Nimble Storage, what we do and why we’re awesome, we just posted a new 5 minute YouTube video that explains it!
Nimble Storage is Transforming the IT Industry
Just wanted to give my $.02 on today’s news about Dell acquiring Wyse. Again my disclaimer – I work for Dell and this entire article is based solely on my opinion. However, I’ve been a Dell (and general consumer of enterprise IT products) customer for way longer then I’ve worked for Dell.
I switched hosting companies and migrating between hosts hasn’t gone so smoothly. Well….that’s actually a lie. Migrating hosting companies was easy….Migrating my 2.x version of WordPress to 3.x has been a challenge. All my posts and their respective comments came over but the layout looks a little different. I’m working on building a much more exciting tonydimaggio.com site in 2012!
Happy New Year!!!
I received my new Amazon Kindle Fire about 5 hours ago and someone suggested I post a review. Not having spent enough time with the device I figured I’d just give a first impressions analysis.
DISCLAIMER: I “used” to work for Dell
In January 2011, Dell released a new Management Plugin for vCenter that allows administrators to monitor and maintain Dell 11G servers directly from the vCenter. While the plugin is not free, it does provide value. I had a chance to play around with the plugin and thought I’d share some information on the installation and configuration.
I took a position as a Systems Consultant at Dell covering the NYC/Northern NJ region. I’m not sure what the policy around blogging is so I won’t be posting anything technical until I find out.
The views and opinions expressed here are mine. Although I work for Dell, this is NOT a Dell blog, but a personal site. The content on this site does not represent the views or opinions of my employer, or their partners.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything, really because I haven’t had much to say and the rest of the blogsphere has already said it. However recently, I’ve had some interesting discussions which prompted me to write something.
Some background – For the last 5 weeks I’ve been in meetings and discussions with many vendors around data retention and eDiscovery based on a project our legal department is sponsoring. I’ve met with at least half a dozen eDiscovery vendors from StorIQ, Digital Reef, Commvault, Symantec, etc. but the last couple days we’ve been talking with other IT people in my industry (chemical manufacturing) around their processes and procedures on the topic. Some of the companies we spoke to said something that really struck a chord with me regarding home directories.
Just got a new Droid Incredible. I have to say its rather incredible. Posting this from WordPress Android app!
I honestly haven’t had anything interesting to write about so here’s a quick and dirty Powershell script for XenApp Commands (Powershell for XenApp) which you can download from My Citrix.
I’ve always found it annoying that there was no real quick way to get a list of all your apps and which users or groups have access.
get-xaapplications | get-xaapplicationreport | select browsername, account
With that being said…I suck with Powershell but I’m trying to learn as much as I can about it. I’ve never been a savvy scripting, programmatic kinda guy…something I’d like to change!
