About Me


Virtual Chronicles is a personal blog of Donovan Durand with focus on DataCenter Technology, Virtualization and Cloud Computing. This blog is my attempt to share my thoughts and views and also to learn from the community.


I’ve been in the Information Technology field for about 13 years and currently work as a Senior Staff Engineer at VMware Inc. I’ve been at VMware for over 10 years now and currently focus on Network & Security with VMware NSX.
I’ve primarily focused on operations and keeping the lights on but have dabbled in other areas. My area’s of experience has been Linux, Virtualization, Networking and some Storage.
