We're Bolstering our VMware, System Center, and Windows Intune Coverage

Several months ago, I wrote a post about how reader feedback improves the Petri IT Knowledgebase. Back then I announced that we were doubling down on our coverage of Microsoft’s Windows Server platform by hiring two dedicated bloggers — Aidan Finn and Russell Smith — who would be focused on the world’s most popular server OS. Dozens of articles and blog posts later, we’re ready to announce our next content expansion, this time into the realms of VMware, Microsoft System Center, and Windows Intune.

Introducing Brian Suhr and Damian Flynn

That’s why I’m happy to announce that Brian Suhr and Damian Flynn have joined Aidan and Russell as our latest monthly contract bloggers. Brian will be writing about all things VMware-related, while Damian will focus on Microsoft System Center and Windows Intune. You can read Brian’s first article about the new VMware vCloud Hybrid Service (vCHS), and check out Brian’s bio:

Brian is a Senior Technical Architect for a VMware partner and also writes for his own blog at Brian works with enterprise clients on creating virtual infrastructure, VDI and Cloud related design solutions. He is active in the VMware community and helps lead the Chicago VMUG group, and has been awarded VMware vExpert status for 2013, 2012 & 2011. He also holds the following VMware certifications: VCP3, VCP5, VCP5-Iaas, VCP-Cloud, VCAP5-DCD, VCAP5-DCA, VCA-DT, and VCP5-DT.

Damian Flynn has already written an article explaining how Microsoft System Center has evolved over the years, and here’s an excerpt from Damian’s bio:
