As a follow on to my good friend Vaughn’s post NetApp Expands our Virtualization & Cloud Computing Expertise I’d offer a hearty thank you for your kind words and absolutely couldn’t agree more with your comments. We have been making strong hiring decisions and aligning our virtualization expertise to match more closely with market trends and the skills of the team’s skills. This purposeful alignment is already starting to shape the virtualization strategy at NetApp and the collaboration between the team members is something I have not personally witnessed in a very long time.
I respect and admire what Harry S. Truman did as a leader and believe that sole of his impact can be attributed to this quote: “It is amazing what we can accomplish when we are not concerned with who gets the credit.” This what I am experiencing now within our team, a combined effort to broaden the adoption of virtualization and a focus on doing what is right for the virtualization community.
It’s not all serious though, we do find time to laugh and let off steam. To that end, I would offer the Virtual Storage Guy a new logo for his blog site and I would add that we are already doing great things and are poised to do even more based on teamwork and a single laser focus on making the world better through virtualization.
