Welcome PernixPros!

PernixPro_resized Today I would like to announce the inaugural class of PernixPros. It was a tough process to go through all of the amazing submissions and select the first 50. We will grow this group over time to ensure we capture the crème de la crème of the PernixData universe. If you weren’t selected there is no need to reapply. Your best bet is to keep doing what you have been doing in evangelizing PernixData and supporting the virtualization community.

Some insight into the process
The criteria for the first set of admissions were not some complex Goolge-esque algorithm, but rather a human effort to balance the group. We wanted a wide cross-section of people who will best make this a vibrant and interesting community. As we interface with the PernixPro members on a regular basis to get feedback on upcoming features, new UI interfaces and Pre-beta programs, we excluded competitors and limited the number of vendors and partners.

We will be contacting all our new PernixPro members to set-up an overview of the program and kick off the great discussions around PernixData FVP. For those that didn’t make it this time keep following us on Twitter @PernixData for updates.
