About Tim

Tim is a Solutions Architect at SimpliVity.  Prior to SimpliVity, he was an SE at PernixData and the Principal Solutions Architect at Mosaic Technology in Salem, NH, helping people around the country with their virtualization, storage, backup and recovery projects.  Before that he was at Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Me.  Tim brought virtualization and VMware to Bowdoin in early 2004 and never looked back.  His groundbreaking Disaster Recovery project in 2006 with Bowdoin College and Loyola Marymount was mentioned in the VMworld 2007 keynote by Diane Greene.  That project, co-hosting DR sites across the country using SAN replication and VMware, was the inspiration for VMware’s Site Recovery Manager product.
Tim holds certifications from Microsoft as a MCSE and from VMware as a VCP3/4/5, as well as obtaining the status of VCAP4/5-DCD and VCAP4/5-DCA.  Tim is also a VMware Certified Design Expert (VCDX) #112.

When not working crazy hours all over the country, he kicks back at his home in Maine.  Tim loves spending time with family, good beer, good BBQ, and cheering for the Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics, Bruins, and UMaine hockey.

    Dear Tim,

    My name is Bhavin, and I work for Packt Publishing. We have recently published a new book titled “Instant VMware View Virtualization How-to” and was wondering if you would be interested in featuring the book on your website in the form of a book review.

    Written by Ramesh Geddam and Prasenjit Sarkar, this book is for architects, solution providers, consultants, engineers, and anyone planning to design and implement a solution based on VMware View 5. For more information and to view the table of contents, please visit our book web-page: http://www.packtpub.com/vmware-view-virtualization/book

    I came across your profile through a Google search and see that you have published useful articles on the topic on the topic. Considering your expertise in VMware, I feel you’d be one of the best persons who could provide an honest, unbiased review of the book. I’m confident that your thoughts about this book will prove to be an interesting read for your audience/subscribers as well.

    In case this subject interests you and you’d be interested in writing a review on your blog, do let me know. I have with me limited e-copies to give and I’d be delighted to send you a complimentary e-copy of the book on your confirmation.

    Please feel free to ask if you have any doubts about reviewing, timelines or otherwise, I’ll be glad to help.

    Have a nice day.

    Regards,
    Bhavin
