Jeramiah Dooley brings more than 17 years of technology experience to the VCE Office of the CTO.  Previously he was the global SME for Service Provider business development, multi-tenancy and vCloud Director design as part of the VCE Corporate Engineering Group.  Prior to joining VCE, he was the Director of Engineering at Peak 10, a service provider based in Charlotte, NC, where directed the overall strategy, design and development of the Managed Services and cloud platforms. 

Hello from VMworld! VCE is excited to be here with all things we have going on (http://www.vce.com/events/vmworld/). If you’ve been following along your head is probably spinning with all of the announcements from VMware and all of the other companies in their ecosystem.

One of the ongoing VCE efforts has been to provide customers with the tools and expertise that allow them to manage and operate a Vblock system with the same efficiency and value with which they purchase, implement and support one.  In support of that, VCE and Cisco are proud to announce a new joint design and demonstration that integrates multiple tools, concentrated around the flagship Cisco Intelligent Automation for Cloud product.
