About Virtual-Simon

Simon Conyard

I work at @VMware as a Technical Account Manager based in the UK.  For over 20 years I’ve been working in the IT industry and gained extensive practical implementation and operational experience with a range of infrastructure and data center technologies. I started my career looking after Novell Netware servers, before falling in love with ESX 2.5 and moving on to larger implementations built using ESX 3.

My work life is mostly spent discussing, assisting and advising customers on how they can navigate the demands of maintaining complex critical systems with budgetary, cloud migrations and improving infrastructure agility demands.  How they can maximise the performance and value of VMware investments.

I’ve been a member of the VMware community since about 2006, where I’ll answer questions (knowledge and time allowing) on VMTN, share content via VMware code and Github, and also author the occasional post on virtual-simon.

I’m very please to have been awarded vExpert status in 2018, ’19 and ’20 and to be an inaugural member of the vExpert Application Modernization program.

If you want to connect professionally I can be found on LinkedIn or if you want to make a community connection I’m @virtual_simon on twitter.
