    Hi all,

    Its day 3 report time for me. I've taken on a new role as a virtualization support and delivery engineer (or technical consultant depending on which customer I'm talking to apparently). So far its been great fun, I've been doing citrix vdi-in-a-box training along with veeam and emc training, sansymphony-v, scale. next on the list will be vmware technical sales pro (whatever that is).

    My job will be consulting with the sales guys and customers to design solutions on anything cloudy/virty based and also supporting customers who have support contracts. The guys at the company seem really nice and it seems quite a relaxed atmosphere so far and one of the first questions I was asked when I got there was "star wars or star trek" so I think I'm going to fit in nicely 8)

    Before now I've always been in-house support so I guess there'll be a huge learning curve for me but so far I'm loving every minute of it. I've got my first couple of proper jobs for a customer today nothing to exciting just one wanting a graceful shutdown of their vmware environment when a power failure occurs and some switch configuration work.

    Hee hee! Yeah, even though I’m moaning about the amount of work it’s not too bad.

    Hope all goes well in the new job mate – does sound good from what you have posted.
