VMGuru.nl prolongues the vExpert status in 2012

The word is out!  The judges have decided and we here at VMGuru.nl are very happy to conclude that Edwin, Erik and myself can call ourselves vExpert 2012 again!

This year, the process was a bit different, as VMware decided that vExperts can be appointed in three new categories:

  • Evangelist Path: The Evangelist Path includes book authors, bloggers, tool builders, public speakers, and other IT professionals who share their knowledge and passion with others with the leverage of a personal public platform to reach many people. Employees of VMware can also apply via the Evangelist pathway.
  • Customer Path: The Customer Path is for internal evangelists and community leaders from VMware customer organizations. They have contributed to success stories, customer references, or public interviews and talks, or were active community contributors, such as VMUG leaders.
  • VPN (VMware Partner Network) Path: The VPN Path is for employees of VMware partner companies who lead with passion and by example, who are committed to continuous learning and to making their technical knowledge and expertise available to many. This can take shape of event participation, video, IP generation, as well as public speaking engagements.

There is no real difference in the vExpert’s apart from the way they are appointed. All vExperts have a lot of love for virtualization and especially in VMware.

The official announcement and the list with all vExperts can be found here

VMguru.nl likes to thank John Troyer and Alex Maier for all their community efforts. We’re excited we can work with you as vExpert for yet another year! And of course congratulations to all 2012 vExperts!


Alex Muetstege works as a Solution Architect for Imtech ICT. He currently provide hosting services for VMGuru.nl. In everyday life he usually does a lot of general IT infrastructure stuff. Messaging and collaboration is his main area of expertise. He is a virtualization enthusiast/newbie/probie but not a lot more than that according to himself. Alex is a certified VMware VCP 5, and V(T)SP 3, 4 & 5. In 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 VMware awarded him the VMware vExpert status for his community efforts.
