Symon Perriman….his thoughts on Hyper-V, Security and future of Virtualization on the Nutanix .NEXT community podcast

Hey everyone…I wanted to share a very cool update (and maybe a little of hero-worship ūüėÄ ). ¬†Well, anyways, my job at Nutanix had another highlight recently. ¬†As many of your know, I love reading, breathing, consuming Microsoft technology. During my consumption of education, there¬†¬†number of¬†people I follow, but¬†there are few¬†that stand out…and one that I spent a lot of time listening to via podcasts;¬†Symon Perriman

Symon Perriman
He takes¬†complex technology¬†subjects¬†and¬†explains¬†it extremely well¬†on many levels so everyone understands..He believes in the community….all things¬†as technologists, we can all strive to achieve.

I recently had the lucky chance to interview him for the Nutanix .Next Community Podcast.  It was great honor to interview him with my colleague\buddy @NutanixTommy as we both had different points of views.

Symon joined 5nine Software earlier this year as Vice President, Business Development & Marketing and is how I came to meet Simon as part of my job in Technical Alliances at Nutanix.

For those of you who are not familiar with 5nine Software, 5nine has a great alternative management product for Hyper-V with benefits¬†of simplified vCenter type management without the footprint of System Center. They¬†also are¬†the only vendor with agentless security product via the¬†Hyper-V extensible virtual switch. Think vShield for Hyper-V…Very cool… ¬† ūüėé
