I’m thrilled to report that Denny Cherry & Associates Consulting now has not 1, but 2 VMware vExperts in our ranks. No we didn’t go off and hire another consultant. VMware has decided that this year they will recognize both Myself (Denny Cherry) and Joey D’Antoni for all the community work that we’ve done with Virtualization by awarding us the VMware vExpert award for 2016.
I know that I can safely speak for Joey when I say that we are both honored to receive this award from VMware. While there are a decent number of vExperts each year, the number of vExperts that are SQL Server Professionals is very small. Looking though that list I can see only a couple of people besides myself who have deep knowledge of SQL Server, so it’s pretty exciting that we make up somewhere around 1/2 of the SQL Server expertise within the VMware vExpert program.
Thank you to VMware for recognizing myself and Joey. And thank you to the members of the community who attend our sessions and read the content we post about VMware and SQL Server.
