Welcome to my site. I started this site as an online archive for me and all things virtual. I kept getting requests for help around some of the more standard issues we all hit in dealing with Cloud automation, particularly around the VMware vCloud Stack so I decided to make my forum public...and here we are.
My name is Lee Friend and I'm based in London, UK. I am a Cloud orchestration specialist in the end to end management, automation and integration of virtualisation stacks covering all pieces of the puzzle from IPAM (InfoBlox / QIP / IP Control), DNS, AD, resiliency & DR (SRM automation), management system integration (including ServiceNow, BMC Remedy, ticketing systems) and on and on.
Having worked since the very early days of virtualisation, I specialise in the vRealize suite (vRO,vRA,vCD,vR OPs,vCloudClient,SRM,and on) with the aim of orchestrating wherever it's needed. I have helped out large financials, global exchanges and cloud service providers at an architecture level all the way through to workflow engineering.
