Who am I?
I am a Cloud Solutions Architect that is passionate about enabling innovation through a myriad of services available in the cloud.
Why blog? What can you expect from it?
One of the main reasons why I started this blog is because this platform will be a great way for me to document my progress and learnings easily as I spiral deeper into the technology. At the same time, I hope that the content I share on this site will be of use to some people out there, regardless of their backgrounds.
In other words, whether or not you are new to VMware/AWS technologies or you are a seasoned techie…. what I hope is that my experiences would be relatable to you in certain ways.
A little background story
I started out as a New College Graduate in VMware with 18 other people about a year and a half ago. We were fortunate enough to go through a structured programme specially curated for us called the VMware Sales Academy Programme. The programme’s main goal was to help us assimilate into VMware in the shortest possible time by equipping us with basic IT knowledge and soft skills.
The programme was especially useful for newbies like us because it gave us a great insight into what VMware does at its core and all the surrounding technologies that drives the entire business.
We learnt a ton of things- from networking and storage basics, to end-user computing, cloud services, IT automation and operations…. etc, it really felt like school all over again.
When the programme ended, we were separated and put into our actual functions. This is when I had the chance to select an area of focus where I could spend the next few months learning and ramping up all the necessary knowledge that I require in order for me to be ready as a Pre-Sales. The technology that I chose to focus on was vSAN.
It was also during this period where I had the opportunity to be mentored by some of the more experienced seniors who have done the role for many years. It is truly such an enriching experience and I’m so thankful to have mentors who are selfless and willing to provide me with ample opportunities to grow.
Today, I am a Cloud Solutions Architect at one of the major cloud companies. I am excited to be able to continue sharing my passions and learnings as I also grow along my journey in this role.
