The best of VMware blogs

Recently my colleague - and VMware PEX unofficial official Tweetup co-host - Eric Siebert hosted a vote on his website looking for the top VMware-focused blogs.  He's held the public vote for 3 years on his site.  If you're a VMware administrator or enthusiast, you'll find a treasure trove of VMware tips, tricks, detailed discussions, best practices and a lot more from the best VMware bloggers out there.  Here's a link to his VMware top blog 2012 results post.   There's also a vChat video (with Eric, Simon Seagrave, David Davis, and John Troyer) revealing the top 25 and doing a deeper dive on the top 25.



Yes, I made the list! 

ATSB landed at number 33. It's my first time being voted a top VMware blog and along with being named a VMware vExpert last year, they're both honors I'm humble and proud of - can I be humbled and proud at the same time?  I just submitted my application for the 2012 vExpert program and am hoping I'm selected again.


ATSB was also voted the #3 blog in the category of storage, quite an honor.


Who else made the list?

I only see one other HP employee on the list (beside this blog and Eric's) but his blog is well worth mentioning.  Juan Manuel Rey is a field engineer in Madrid, Spain and his blog often takes on some pretty meaty, technical topics.  Take a look and you'll see what I mean from all the screen shots and scripts that he includes.  Good stuff.


I wanted to highlight a couple others (ok - way more than a couple):

There's over 180 blogs listed on Eric's post and I've only touched on ones I'm familiar with (or friends in the industry) so check out Eric's blog to check out who they all are.  To those of you that voted for ATSB, thank you!
