Congratulations Brian W – DJI Drone Raffle Contest Winner


Thank you for participating in our Raffle Drawing for the very cool DJI Drone - we had a lot of fun putting it together for you. We thought it would be great to get to know our winner and did a little write up to introduce him to our readers.

Tell us about your professional career background and interests ?

I work in healthcare specializing in virtualization technology and strategy. I&#rsquo;ve been working in IT for over 20 years, and working with VMware solutions for over 15. My current interests involve Cloud Management and Automation, and Network Virtualization. I also enjoy attending my local VMUG meetings to understand how other people are addressing problems in Healthcare with technology.

How was your Hands-on Lab Experience? Anything we can do to improve the experience?

I&#rsquo;m a huge proponent of the HOL&#rsquo;s. I used them frequently to study for VMware Certification exams, especially to get to bits that aren&#rsquo;t generally available… Additionally, many of the labs give you free reign to go off of the lab manual, and do other tasks. For me, this is much easier than a home lab. Everything is properly configured, consistent, and there&#rsquo;s no consequence for making changes that would break a home lab configuration. Over the years, the HOL environment has gotten better and the catalog broader, there&#rsquo;s really nothing else like it out there.

Advice to users out there on using the Hands-on Labs

Get out there and try them! Don&#rsquo;t be afraid to use a HOL environment for other tasks than the lab, such as performing tasks on a certification blueprint. I rarely find that there are things I cannot perform in the HOL&#rsquo;s, short of complex multisite configurations. The HOL&#rsquo;s are great training if you&#rsquo;re lacking budget, offering the latest content and products.
