Welcome to KendrickColeman.com! A technical blog focused on IT infrastructure written by Kendrick Coleman. I focus on virtualization and the evolution of the cloud, but I also like to dive into other areas of IT. I use this blog for publishing solutions to uncommon problems I find in my day to day duties. If I happen to resolve a problem that google can't find, you can expect me to write a blog post about it.
About Me: I'm Kenny Coleman (Kendrick is my full name), and live in Louisville, KY. I started my career off as a windows system engineer after graduating from the University of Kentucky, which lead me wanting to get back into networking (I attended Trinity High School in Louisville,KY that had one of the inaugural CCNA courses for high school students) and landed me my first certification, CCNA. As a Cisco and systems engineer, it lead me into my new passion of virtualization. I've been honored by VMware with the vExpert award for my contributions to the VMware community and being a virtualization evangelist. I have a broad range of experience with many different technologies. I believe that's what has made me so successful this far into my career. I love diving into new technologies, trying to be a bourbon connoisseur, a Halloween engineer, hanging out with my beautiful wife, and being around friends.
