Shank Mohan is an ANZ Professional Services Practice Lead for Networking & Security at VMware. He spends too much time in his home lab and has created a platform to share what he’s learnt, collaborate on new ideas and help troubleshoot PITA problems in virtual infrastructure and software defined networks.
While most other ten year olds were out riding bikes and playing at the park, I remember being hunched over a computer trying to pull it apart to figure out what it’s made of and how to build it back up. That curiosity has continued till to date. I continue to take apart and re-build networks, servers and virtualised infrastructure in my home lab.
This lab has helped me understand, learn, develop, test and implement solutions in software-defined data centres.
