vSpecialist is a virtualisation and cloud-focused blog written by Michael Poore and Jeremy Bowman. Since 2008 we’ve been writing about our experiences with (mostly) VMware related technologies because we love what we do.

Jeremy Bowman

Jeremy is a Managing Consultant at Fusion Business Solutions, developing VMware products and solutions to deployment across a range of customers in EMEA and the US. Current focus is on cloud technologies and deployments coupled with business agility, but enjoys all technology as part of daily life. He lives with his wife in Wiltshire.

Jeremy is VCAP4/5-DCA, VCAP4/5-DCD, VCP3/4/5, VTSP and VSP certified and working towards his VCDX qualification in the coming months. He can be found on LinkedIn and Twitter.
