Welcome to the iThinkVirtual blog, a site where I am free to ramble on and rant about various topics pertaining to the world of technology & virtualization…and maybe some other things too!  My name is Alex Lopez, but some of you may know me by other nicknames and monikers such as “virtualex”.

I am a VMware Solutions Engineer by profession, a VCA-DCV, VCA6-DCV, VCP5-DCV, VCP6-DCV certification holder, and a proud honoree of the awarded and well-respected VMware vExpert 2016, 2017, & 2018 title!  This blog was created in early 2016, by me, as a place where I am free to express myself, my views, and my opinions in whichever manner that I please….so HA!  All kidding aside, I hope that this site brings some type of value to my fellow readers, and hope that you will enjoy the content that I deliver, so please be sure to subscribe!
