Chinwag with Scott Lowe [Episode 15]

The chinwag returns with an extended interview of one of the top bloggers in the virtualization space. You should really know this guy already – given that he’s almost as famous as me! But in case you don’t. Here’s a bit of blurb about Scott which I shamelessly cut and pasted from his weblog. Oh, and Scott recently joined EMC to be part of Chad Sakac’s vSpecialist team AKA “virtual army of warrior geeks”


“I live with my wife, Crystal, and our kids in the greater Raleigh-Durham, NC area. When I’m not working or spending time with my family, I’m working in our church, Kittrell Church of God, as a youth leader.


I’ve been in the Information Technology field for more than 16 years, starting out with desktop support. Along the way, I worked as an instructor, a technical trainer and Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT), systems administrator, IT manager, systems engineer, consultant, and Chief Technology Officer for a small start-up. Most recently, I was the technical lead for the virtualization practice at ePlus Technology, a national VAR/reseller. Currently, I work for EMC as a VMware-Cisco Solutions Principal, where I specialize in the intersection and integration of VMware, Cisco, and EMC solutions, products, and technologies.


In addition, I am a contributor to, a VMware-focused website with technical articles, how-to’s, tips, and news. I have had a few articles published on and I am a former columnist for Virtualization Review magazine.


I currently have two published books on the market. The first, Mastering VMware vSphere 4, was published by Wiley/Sybex around VMworld 2009; the second, VMware vSphere 4 Administration Instant Reference, was published by Wiley/Sybex in December 2009. Both books are available from and other major booksellers.”


I have Scott’s blog on my feed-burner – you can find his blog here – and I also follow him on twitter too!



In the chinwag we discuss Scott recent move to EMC – and we also discuss the top of server consolidation from the “eggs in one basket” scenario – Scott’s also being playing with EMC’s VPLEX technology which allows for amongst many things – long distance VMotion/Live Migrate – finally we discuss the Citrx announcement of the client hypervisor – XenClient.
