Since June of 2006, I’ve worked for HTC (Horry Telephone Cooperative), which by the way is the national’s largest telephone cooperative. Its offered me some great experiences and training opportunities. One of those is exposure to virtualization technologies. And this one comes with a story.
When I started at HTC, my wife was pregnant and due in November. In September, we were scheduling a VMware class for the new version of VMware that was being released. VMware was already in our datacenter and operational, but the new version offered a huge leap forward – something we wanted to take advantage of. So the class was scheduled starting on November 1 and moving forward – no big deal – until the doctor’s said we’d have our baby on October 30 (much longer story there). So I began VMware classes two days after my daughter was born, but I haven’t regretted it. Even as distracted as I was during class, I met a really amazing product suite.
