Guest blog post and whitepaper at VMware on Shadow IT

, 2013-01-22

Yesterday I was featured as a guest on the VMware.com vFabric blog to introduce a whitepaper that I authored on using VMware vFabric Data Director to help curb Shadow IT in the enterprise. I have been a part of the Data Director project since before it could handle SQL Server workloads and truly believe in the product. The blog post is located here:

And the whitepaper I authored is located here:
