About me

Welcome to my EUC blog, vHojan.nl.

My name is Johan van Amersfoort and I am the Bearded VDI Junkie!

Since 1999 I am part of the IT world. The first few years as a field engineer working with SBC products like WinFrame and MetaFrame and later on mostly with TS/RDS based solutions.

In 2005 I had my first experience with VMware products (Workstation) and since then I got hooked. Especially when I saw my first vMotion. All infrastructures I worked with from that moment on had VMware products as a core part of the infrastructure. Next to Server Virtualization, I focussed on Application Virtualization with both ThinApp and Softgrid/App-V.

Late 2013, it was time to make a career change. But what? Actually, it was kind-of easy. Mix Server Virtualization with SBC and Application Virtualization and what do you get? The answer is simple, End-User Computing. I applied for a job at ITQ as a Virtualization Consultant, got hired and took my career to a next level. The 3 year after that were a rollercoaster. vExpert since 2015, VCIX/VCAP’s (5/6) on Data Center and Desktop & Mobility, VMware EUC Champion awards and I achieved my ultimate goal: VCDX-DTM.

As EUC is going through a revolution with a lot of new tech that makes it more agile, robust, scalable, secure, manageable and pretty awesome, I will focus mainly on EUC while blogging. You can expect posts about new tech, EUC automation, my personal experience and probably more.

Everything I post on this blog is based on my personal view.
