About Byron Schaller

My Current CV

The postings on this site are my own and do not necessarily represent the positions, strategies or opinions of VMware, my employer.

Husband. Father. Musician. Geek. IT Pro.

I have been working in IT for 15 years. I started writing code for a health care survey processing company at 18 in the pre-Y2K madness. I did that for a couple years and then transitioned into Infrastructure working with NT 4, Novell Netware 4, Winframe 1.6, Exchange 5.5. and SQL 7.  I earned my MCSE NT4 and CNE 5 in 1999.

In 2001 I entered the world of Consulting and Service Delivery where I have remained ever since. I have worked at small SMB firms and global enterprise including a 7 year stint at Big Blue. I started my consulting career focusing on Messaging, Active Directory, and Server Based Computing. 7 years ago I made the switch over to the Virtualization space where I have been working ever since.

I am fascinated by emerging technologies and how they are constantly changing the world in which we live. The rise of cloud computing, hyper-convergence, Big Data, and other tech has me constantly learning and consuming as much information as I can. This blog is intended to share some of my findings as I attempt to understand the new face of technology.

I currently live in Indianapolis, IN with my wife Brie and my two children Jack and Gretchen.
