  1. Hi Alex, Robin here. I”d like to hi-light your EMC blog from my website. As an Archer Certified Consultant and now first SV area to offer the EMC support Virtualization and Cloud Essentials Certifications through CompTIA, I couldn’t be more committed or support to EMC products and service. My stuff goes way back, to a time before EMC heard of Brabeon or Archer, and you’ll see that I care about EMC reputation. In fact, I was an EMC partner as Phoenix Business and Systems Process, as far back 2001.
    Let me know if I can RSS and speak about your posts. Would be a great pleasure to catch up early in the new year.
    Kind Regards,
    Robin
