  1. The Report of CloudStack’s Death was a Great Exaggeration

    The title of this post is a riff on the now famous quote by Mark Twain a.k.a. Samuel Clemens about the New York Journal’s confusion between him and at time his ailing cousin James Ross Clemens who was a continent away. The same thing happened recently with regards to two unrelated events. An organizational change here at Citrix and the perceived vitality of one of ...

    Germany truly is a nation of engineers and technologists, having left Siemens PLM for Citrix HDX, I now seem to spend a lot more time than I ever did in Germany (and apologising for my lack of German) and in October I’ll be at the Citrix Technology Exchange 2014, Munich, October 21st-22th 2014.

It’s a fascinating read and I recommend being nosy and reading it here.

    Now you may remember my blog post from February, when I uncovered my identity as a XenAgent in the XenServer Master Class. But I also work as an HDX Agent. Am I a double agent?
