For those of you following me over the past couple months or years, you probably already know and understand I’m the kind of guy who gets driven and passionate about technology that truly solves problems. The kind of guy who falls in love with software that enables the future and today I’m making that next move in my career. As you probably already know I’ve been working my way into the application space more and more and honestly feel like IT Ops has the ability to provide a platform like Apcera and provide a flexibility to the app teams that is better than any of us might have imagined.
So what drove me to Apcera? These simple key items won me over:
- I watched a live application workload move from VMware, to GCP, to AWS, to Azure, and back to VMware within a few moments (Remember your first vMotion moment???)
- Finally a platform that provides a means to run containers in production without all the operational nightmares that exist today
- A chance to be involved in a start up atmosphere and really drive value for customers and take on the challenge of automating the application components
- Founder is Derek Collison
If you haven’t taken a look at it yet I encourage you to take a look at the whiteboard below or hit me up and I’ll go through the whiteboard and demo examples.
Now the question that might be lingering in your mind, what about VMware and vRA specifically? I can tell you without question that you’ll see some great integrations here focused on Apcera and VMware! I am still and always will be a VMware guy top to bottom. I would also love to keep promoting content for vRA and if you or someone you know are looking for a blog you can contribute to please reach out as this community has grown strong and you’ll be able to hit lots of people with your content!
Congrats on the new direction, and good luck!
Thanks and don’t hesitate to let me know if you decide to operationalize containers, Apcera can help!!! 😉
