I just want to second Chuck's assertion that VMware has been running as an independent entity and making themselves available to EMC's competitors for cooperative initiatives.

It is a bit odd to see one-way affection in the press. Did somebody run this as a story? I guess my questions would be more for the press than for Netapp. I know trade press journalism doesn't have the same kind of vetting capabilities and responsibilities as the news media, but...... I mean if they don't make an effort then who does?

We know we can't trust bloggers for objectivity - even those independent types who advertise themselves as such - tend to have as much bias as those of us blogging on behalf of our employers.

    Chuck now works for Oracle, and is now deeply embroiled in IT infrastructure.

    Previously, he was with VMware for 2 years, and EMC for 18 years before that, most of them great.

    He enjoys speaking to customer and industry audiences about a variety of technology topics, and -- of course -- enjoys blogging.

    Chuck lives in Vero Beach, FL with his wife and four dogs when he's not traveling. In his spare time, Chuck is working on his second career as an aging rock musician.

    Warning: do not ever buy him a drink when there is a piano nearby.

    I try and write something new 1-2 times per week; less if I'm travelling, more if I'm in the office. Hopefully you'll find the frequency about right!
