It’s a pleasure to introduce to you our last week winner Trevor Roberts Jr. (@VMtrooper)
Trevor is a 15-year veteran of the IT industry. As an Architect for VCE, he helps customers see the value of Cisco Data Center Solutions for Virtualization and Cloud Deployments.

This versatility allows IT departments and businesses to respond much quicker to customer demands. Further, Trevor is excited to see how Cisco’s Software-Defined Networking (SDN) initiatives will spur the next evolution of Data Center Automation.
